Our graduates perform well in the labour market with 89% in work or further study and 72% in highly skilled employment.

The successful applicants will have knowledge and expertise in one or more of the following: project management, operations management, quality management or engineering business management. Professional experience, preferably obtained through employment in a relevant industrial sector, is also essential.
The successful candidates will be expected to contribute to delivery across our Aerospace, Automotive and Railway Engineering courses. However, we have a particular requirement for someone who can lead and develop our practice in Rail Engineering Management for our collaborations with the railway industry and contribute to the development of our Railway Engineering course provision and in particular our Degree Apprenticeship programme.
