Technical Advisor Land Based Product - 2 year Fixed Term Contract
We are seeking a highly motivated and experienced specialist in the land based sector who can support our internal and external stakeholders with dynamism! The aim of this role is to help City & Guilds deliver on its commitment to invest and grow in the land based sector. You will be part of a key team working on delivering an exciting new offer, by working closely with customers, employers and professional bodies to engage them in the development of an evolving offer.

This appointment will be made on merit.
We believe that diversity and inclusion strengthens and enriches us, and that it is the responsibility of everyone at the City & Guilds Group to drive this value.

You will have the ability to work very closely with others to help all project workstreams meet their targets and milestones.
As a confident individual you will have the skills and ability to bring key stakeholders together to work on the new offer and continue to support City & Guilds to be the lead awarding organisation in this sector.
