Creative

Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

Ford Offering up to 50 Jobs for Technicians and Apprentices

Women are being invited to apply for up to 50 "rewarding" jobs in the motor industry in an attempt to address the male-female imbalance.

A number of Ford dealers are looking to recruit as many as 50 new technicians and apprentices to help meet a high level of demand for servicing and maintenance of their vehicles  Apprentice candidates will qualify for the brand's master technician training programme at its academy in Naas, Co Kildare.

 

As well as taking on new, unqualified apprentices, some dealers are hoping to recruit trained technicians with "cutting-edge software, electronic and electrical skills".

David Pimlott, director of customer service at Ford Ireland, says: "This is a fantastic opportunity to join Ireland's biggest network of car dealerships. Our dealers would be delighted to receive applications from young ladies who might be interested in a career with the Ford network. 

"We have some females working in the technical teams, but they are very much in the minority, and we would love to redress that balance in this latest intake."  Anyone interested should visit www.ford.ie/experience-ford/technician-recruitment.
