Why look to advance your Ford career?

Ford has a log and proud history as a key manufacturer in the Australian automotive industry. And now that the Falcon has gone, Ford has remained an important player with innovative and popular models that takes advantage of the brand’s impressive technological and manufacturing muscle. Ford technicians benefit from extensive training, and often work in busy, engaging workshops where career progression is there for the taking for this with the drive and determination. Salaries are also usually strong with Ford, and with a huge dealer network across the country, there’s a lot to like about working with this iconic brand.

Ford’s history in brief

We could start with the birth of assembly line manufacturing and the dawn of the mass uptake of the automobile with the Model T, but it probably makes more sense to focus on Ford’s recent history in Australia. Along with Holden, Ford was one of the two dominant brands in this country for decades, especially due to the locally developed and manufactured Falcon. You couldn’t drive more than a few hundred meters without seeing a Falcon of some sort only a couple of decades ago – kids either grew up in a Ford house or a Holden house, and seldom did anyone change their flag!

However, sadly the end of local car making meant the death of the Falcon. But, in its wake is the rise of the Ranger, the Mustang and the Focus, and Ford is again taking its place as one of Australia’s favourite brands. Ford technicians still work for a total icon of our industry.
