Ford strives to create a work environment that encourages employees to work their best, while also offering flexible work arrangements to create a healthy work-life balance. Many employees work in a hybrid way, with flexible hours to allow employees to decide when, where and how they work best. 

What we love about Ford:

💡 Ford offers flexible working for all employees, regardless of role.

💡 Family-friendly policies such as up to 52 weeks of maternity leave for female employees

What's worth checking about Ford:

💡 Parental leave is only available for female employees 

💡 While all employees are eligible for flexible working, the number of days employees will be able to work remotely is dependent on their job responsibility and discussions with management.

Flexible Working Approach

Work-life balance is fundamental to Ford. We offer up to 52 weeks maternity leave on full basic pay for female employees, on-site childcare at some sites and flexible work arrangements available to all staff.

Flexi-Time: This is a working schedule that allows employees to choose when they start and end their workday, usually to accomodate an individuals needs and other commitments outside of work.
Compressed Hours: This is where an employee increases the volume of hours worked each day in order to reduce the number of days worked.
Full-time: A full-time employee works between 35 and 40 hours per week, usually on a permanent contract.
Job Share: An arrangement where two people, or sometimes more, are retained on a part-time or reduced-time basis to perform a job normally fulfilled by one person working full-time.
Phased Retirement: This refers to an approach that gives employees the ability to manage the transition from full-time employment to retirement.
Hybrid Working (Office / Home): This means an employee splits their time between the workplace (usually office based) and remote working (usually at home).
Remote or Mobile Working: This is a type of working arrangement that allows an employee to work from a remote location outside of corporate offices.
Work From Home (WFH): This is where an employee has the ability to set up their workspace at home, and manage their work without the need to go to the office.
Office Working: This refers to an employee being physically present in the workplace to fulfil their contractual responsibilities.
Career Breaks / Sabbatical: These are an extended periods of agreed absence from work. The term is often used interchangeably with "sabbatical", which is generally taken to mean a shorter period of leave of several weeks or months.
