A £9.5M funded programme is underway to build and establish MIRA Technology Institute which will be fully operational by September 2018, based at MIRA Technology Park, Nuneaton, Warwickshire.  The project is led by North Warwickshire & South Leicestershire College working closely with a collaboration of key partners:

The MIRA Technology Institute will be a global centre of excellence where industry leaders, engineers, technicians and business professionals come to develop industry essential skills, key to fuelling their career ambitions and their employers’ business success. 

About the MIRA Operations Director role

At this exciting stage in the programme with construction and fit out underway, the role of Operations Director is to establish all operational requirements ahead of and during the launch. When MIRA Technology Institute opens in September 2018 this role will be the most senior role in the operation and manage all aspects, to ensure that the provision meets the agreed vision.
