The government has established high-quality Institutes of Technology (IoTs) to provide employers with a skilled workforce and students with a clear route to technical employment. The Greater Birmingham & Solihull IoT (GBSIoT) specialises in Engineering and Manufacturing and is a consortium led by Solihull College & University Centre, working alongside Aston University, Birmingham City University and South and City College Birmingham as core partners and supported by BMet College, University College Birmingham and the University of Birmingham. GBSIoT collaboratively designs, develops and broadens education and training opportunities aligned to the latest skills needs of leading employers in the sector.
We wish to recruit an Operations Manager to provide strategic and technical support to GBSIoT’s education partners and stakeholders for a range of education and outreach programmes to optimise GBSIoT’s investment into the Educational Cyber Physical Manufacturing Rig. As the GBSIoT Operations Manager, you must be able to provide support to academic colleagues and students and assist in promoting effective learning and act as a demonstrator of the Rig to a range of external audiences including employers and employer bodies.
Candidates will need to evidence they have undertaken relevant technical, software and hardware training together with proven experience or knowledge of using and maintaining automation and robotics equipment. A sound working knowledge of Industry 4.0 principles and the ability to support research study and curriculum development programmes will be vital in this new and exciting role within the GBSIoT.
Please note if you are selected for the next stage in the process, you will be required to attend an interview onsite, unless exceptional circumstances apply. Unfortunately, the College is unable to contribute towards the associated travel costs.
Solihull College & University Centre is committed to ensuring a safe environment for all students and expects all staff to engage fully with this commitment.
