An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering Skills Trainer to join our Engineering department.

Together with our Institute of Technology, the Energy Centre marks a flagship investment by Grantham College in training for the jobs of the future.

The successful applicant must have:

  • Level 3 Qualification within at least one relevant vocational industry

Fancy a 4-day working week*?

Grantham College staff benefit from a reduction in working hours and still receive full pay, a full-time member of staff with a permanent salaried contract for 37 hours per week reduces to an average of 33 hours per week with the same pro rata reduction for part time employees, this is applied pro-rata. Annual leave entitlements will reduce in line with the reduction in contracted hours, but the number of weeks of leave will remain the same. You will work your core hours Monday to Thursday with full time staff working a Friday morning on the 4th week.

Grantham College experience positive benefits from the 4-day week, including improvement to staff wellbeing and morale. We have also seen benefits in terms of reduced staff turnover leading to greater consistency of performance for our students and apprentices. The number of staff sickness absence days has reduced alongside the energy usage for the college and therefore its carbon emissions. We have also seen improvements in key quality indicators such as student attendance and retention and we are confident this will feed through into improved achievement rates and more positive outcomes for our students.
