Positions will be open to apprentices and trained technicians

 

Ford are looking to hire 1,000 trained technicians across dealers in the UK in an effort to push their self-driving cars and hybrid engine technology along.

According to bosses within the company, Ford require new recruits such as trained technicians, mechanics and those with electrical skills.

Ford are just one of a number of car manufacturers pushing ahead with plans to produce electric vehicles.

The UK Government announced in the summer that from 2040, all new petrol and diesel cars will be banned from UK roads and as such most car manufacturers are now working on new technology based around alternatively fuelled vehicles.

A crack down on emissions, as well as the announcement regarding the ban of petrol and diesel cars in the future have convinced many motorists here in the UK to switch over to an electric or hybrid vehicle and sales of such motors have increased in September.

“Although we value traditional technical skills, we’re looking for ambitious and flexible technicians who can join us on our journey to hybrids, battery electric vehicles, and autonomous technology – and beyond,” said Andy Barratt, chairman and managing director of Ford of Britain.

Ford say the new posts are open to existing trained technicians, trained armed forces technicians, technically competent mechanics and apprentices and all training will be carried out at the state-of-the-art Henry Ford Academy in Daventry.
