As the Programme Leader, you will play a key role in shaping food engineering training and education for years to come, working with engineering managers across the UK to build an offer that will both raise the skills levels of existing engineers and attract young people into the industry. The role requires an experienced food engineer, ideally with a balance of mechanical and electrical skills and an awareness and understanding of engineering related digital technologies. The role will suit a food engineering professional seeking to change career, who if not already qualified, is keen to train to be a teacher in Higher Education.
