To be successful in either post, you will need to be able to demonstrate good planning, and a commitment to delivering high quality learning experiences of machinery utilization and the ability to maintain workshop machinery.  The successful candidate will be able to use a range of tools and techniques to support decision making and solve problems that are often complex and non-routine. They will have a responsibility to identify and contribute to making improvements such as business processes, procedures, ways and methods of working.
