A well organised training and development professional with an engineering background is required to join our Research & Development team on a 12 month fixed term contract to work on a range of projects.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate in-depth knowledge and practical experience of all elements of the learning and development cycle in an engineering context including training needs analysis, curriculum development and course design through the application of recognised systematic learning and development processes. You could work on the development of qualifications and awards, investigating industry training needs, development of apprentice and occupational standards.

As well as personally developing products and services, you will also be required to manage the procurement of products and services from external suppliers, from developing the initial specification through to the award of the contract and its subsequent management to ensure successful delivery.

An engineering background is essential in order to develop products and services for delivery to the Engineering Construction Industry both in UK and Internationally.

Project management skills are crucial, including the ability to develop and manage budgets and development contracts. A strong communicator, excellent presentation and stakeholder management skills are essential, particularly the ability to facilitate working groups which may include senior industry and training provider representatives. You will be able to work under your own initiative, integrate with the other team members, think clearly and creatively, work to deadlines, and coordinate the efforts of others. Strong IT skills are essential as the successful applicant will be required to use the Microsoft Office suite of tools on a daily basis.

This is a home based role which requires periodic and sometimes short notice travel with overnight stays across the whole of England, Scotland and Wales. Applicants must also be prepared for the possibility of occasional short duration international trips.

To apply for this position, candidates must be eligible to live and work in the UK indefinitely.
