Ford dealerships from across Ireland are looking to recruit up to 50 new apprentice technicians and fully qualified technicians for a rewarding career in the motor industry. Included in the list of dealers seeking applications are Galway’s Ford outlet Motorpark on the Headford Road in Galway City.

In addition to taking on new unqualified apprentices, a selection of Ford dealers nationwide are also hoping to recruit trained technicians with cutting-edge software, electronic and electrical skills to reflect the rapid evolution of Ford’s product range.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to join Ireland’s biggest network of car dealerships,” said David Pimlott, Director of Customer Service at Ford Ireland.

“Ford’s product range is growing almost as fast as its technology, and 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, autonomous technology – and beyond.

“And with the possible offer of subsidised tooling and workwear for new apprentices and experienced technicians, there was never a better time to opt for a technical role in the automotive sector,” he said.

Pimlott said that any one of the company’s recent passenger models has as much technology on it as the first Apollo rocket that took man to the moon, and the company’s cars are becoming more technologically advanced with each new model.
