Autotech Recruit partners with Ford

Autotech Recruit has forged a partnership with Ford Motor Company in the UK.

The move will see Autotech Recruit placing temporary vehicle technicians into Ford’s authorised repairer network across the UK, in a bid to help the car manufacturer improve service capacity.

The partnership follows on from the launch of Autotech Recruit’s manufacturer led recruitment programme earlier this year. Designed to significantly cut the time it takes to get temporary technicians on board, the programme is specifically for leading car manufacturers and can be customised to suit exact requirements.

Ford has named its programme ‘fly-in’ tech. Under the ‘fly-in’ tech programme, Autotech Recruit have developed an exclusive booking process for Ford, enabling service managers to submit role requirements quickly, via a dedicated online booking portal.

All information and requests entered into the portal will be managed by a team of recruitment consultants at Autotech Recruit who will oversee the entire recruitment process, including screening all potential candidates.

To ensure its temporary technicians are ready to fly in and hit the ground running, Autotech Recruit have put a pool of technicians through a Ford training course at the Henry Ford Academy.

Currently, Autotech Recruit have eight, Ford trained technicians, working within Ford dealerships across the UK, however by the end of the year this figure is expected to have increased with 24 out in the field.
