Ford creates new jobs for 16 to 24 year olds 12 March 2013

Ford is to invest £250,000 in recruiting up to 50 additional apprentices for its UK network of commercial vehicle dealerships this year.

The funding is being made available to its dealerships to recruit commercial vehicle sales executive apprentices in the 16 to 24 age range, under the Ford Masters Apprenticeship Programme.

"The government is placing an increased emphasis on apprenticeships as an effective and credible route into employment," states Stuart Harris, Ford College manager.

"We are delighted to offer this scheme to our commercial vehicle dealerships, and to be able to provide much needed employment opportunities in today's challenging economic climate," he adds.

In their new roles, the apprentices will gain knowledge of Ford's vehicle product range and how to provide customers with a high quality and professional purchasing experience.

Ford CV dealerships will work alongside Skillnet to advertise their apprenticeship vacancies.
