Ford launches recruitment drive for technicians

Ford dealers across the UK are recruiting for 1,000 trained technicians armed with software, electronic and electrical skills.

The motor vehicle manufacturer said in a statement that the recruitment drive has been sparked by strong sales of its Transit vans, the launch of the new Fiesta model, and planned introduction of new electric and hybrid powertrains.

The new roles are available nationwide for existing trained technicians, technically competent mechanics, trained Armed Forces technicians and apprentices. The highest ranking technicians, known as master technicians, will be responsible for complex diagnostics and repairs, and can earn up to £45k a year.

In addition to working at Ford dealerships and workshops, technicians can also join Ford’s new Mobile Service Programme, providing maintenance work on-site for fleet customers.
