At Kirklees College we are always looking for new talent, and welcome applications from all sectors.

Are you already working in education and looking for a new challenge? Or employed in industry and looking to work more closely with your community?

We’re already a successful college, but we’re continually striving to be better and do better - be part of our story!

In the role of Trainer Assessor, you’ll predominantly be based at the Engineering Centre and your focus will be on taking ownership of a caseload of Motor Vehicle Apprentices (both Light Vehicle and/or Heavy Vehicle).

Ideally, you’ll have a recognised Assessors qualification (or be able to prove equivalent ability) and demonstrable experience in Light Vehicle and/or Heavy Vehicle maintenance & repair. It’s important that you’re able to communicate effectively and engage with young people and employers and demonstrate our College values of Kindness, Unity and Excellence in your role.

Due to the nature of our work, it’s essential you’re committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults.

We believe learning is not just for our students: it’s an important part of working here too. Staff development opportunities include a mentoring scheme, financial contributions for external qualifications and skills development for current and aspiring managers. You’ll also have access to a range of staff benefits including an employee assistance programme, retail and leisure discounts and reduced Metro travel. 

We want people who believe in the value of education, and who can contribute to our culture of supporting and challenging one another.
