What about work permits and eligibility to work in the UK?

At Ford we welcome all applications for our job opportunities. However, we are unable to employ anyone who does not have permission to live and work in the UK. All candidates will be asked to provide originals of documentation proving their right to work in the UK at assessment centre stage. The Company will be unable to offer employment if the candidate has been unable to provide the appropriate supporting original documentation. The Company has a duty to check that all new employees are entitled to work in the UK and to do the type of work offered. Any job offer will therefore be conditional on the individual holding the right to work in the UK.

What are the typical working hours?

The standard working hours are 37.5 hours a week, 7.5 hours a day Monday to Friday. Start and finish times will vary between location and departments.
