IT Graduate Programme
Ford is one of the world’s biggest automotive manufacturers and most recognised brands. This is your chance to join us on our IT Graduate Programme, and become part of a global professional IT community.
You’ll advance through a series of on-the-job placements, each with real responsibilities and expectations, as you help us to build, implement and enhance our IT solutions. This will involve executing innovative solutions to our hardware/software environments and business processes.
You’ll get involved in a range of different functions throughout your time on the Graduate Programme, including:
- Business Relationship Management – Planning future IT strategy and projects
- Application Development – Developing, enhancing and maintaining our IT applications
- Solutions Support – Providing front-line support for our critical IT applications and services
- Infrastructure Operations – Planning, building and operating a global IT infrastructure base
- Security – Protecting critical IT systems from security breaches and cyber threats.
You’ll be part of a global IT team, working with colleagues from all over the world. So you may have the chance to travel to one of our overseas locations from time-to-time.
What’s in it for you?
As a Ford Graduate, you’ll receive a very competitive salary which can increase as you progress through our organisation. You’ll also receive 26 days annual leave a year (plus bank holidays), an annual holiday bonus payment, discounted rates on Ford cars (for you, and members of your family too), a pension plan, and onsite gyms at most Ford locations.
We’ll also invest in your ongoing development, giving you all the support you need to build a long and rewarding career, through a variety of learning programmes.
Who we’re looking for
We’re looking for people who display a few key qualities. Ideally, you’ll have at least a 2:2 undergraduate degree, preferably in IT or an IT/business discipline (we would consider graduates from other courses, though). You’ll also have strong interpersonal and communication skills, together with a strong customer focus, and a proactive approach.
