After assembling a Jaguar I-Pace concept and learning more about electric vehicles, you can crack a series of code puzzles that are meant to flag up your prowess in coding and engineering.

Late past year, Jaguar Land Rover announced Noodle, the band's guitarist, as a brand ambassador and she's helping recruit: "Can you crack the code?" Those interested can download the Gorillaz app on either the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

To address this, an innovative recruitment tool on Gorillaz's "mixed reality app" tasks users with assembling a virtual Jaguar I-Pace vehicle and completing a series of "code-breaking puzzles", says the BBC.

The Gorillaz app will feature the recruitment feature from today (Monday 19 June 2017), which comprises a 360-degree environment in a garage where the challenge is held. "Here we've found an engaging way to recruit a diverse talent pool in software systems, cyber systems, app development and graphics performance".

Although it is not known where the jobs would be based it is highly likely many will be at Jaguar Land Rover's growing operations at Whitley, Gaydon or even Ryton-on-Dunsmore. "It will be the first of its kind", Alex Heslop, JLR's head of electrical engineering, said. However, traditional application methods and CVs will continue to be accepted.

He said there is a lack of engineers in the United Kingdom and it is likely that JLR will recruit overseas and relocate successful candidates to Britain. In 2016 Jaguar Land Rover sold more than 583,000 vehicles in 136 countries, with more than 80 per cent of our vehicles produced in the United Kingdom being sold overseas. London and NY are being considered as the possible venues, the report added. The band is actually the work of Blur frontman Damon Albarn and his cartoonist mate Jamie Hewlett, with the musical side being provided by various folk from album to album.

JLR will collaborate with Gorillaz via the brand's app.
