The Worshipful Company of Shipwrights is committed to promoting the growth of Marine Apprenticeships in order to sustain the high level of competency in marine skills through the generations. Over the last three years the Company has established partnerships with Lloyd’s Register Foundation and British Marine to successfully boost apprenticeships and training opportunities throughout the marine industry. The Shipwright’s Apprenticeship Scheme has a proven track record of success, but with recent radical positive changes to the world of apprenticeships and the opportunities this is creating, there is plenty more to do. The Shipwrights’ Company is looking for an exceptional individual to build on the success of the last three years and promote, manage and administer the Scheme which delivers funding for the apprentices’ first year wages. He or she will be the principal point of contact for mentoring both SMEs and will also engage in future fund-raising, expansion and development of the Scheme, based at the British Marine HQ, where new marine apprenticeship standards are being coordinated with a number of the industry’s brand names. Visiting marine SMEs is a vital part of the job which means there is a certain amount of travel away from the office. Using your excellent communication and inter-personal skills you will develop strong working relationships with Marine SME’s nationwide and encourage them to take on advanced and higher level apprentices through close liaison and a detailed understanding of apprenticeships. You will have the knowledge and drive to identify training opportunities and engage with training providers and colleges nationally. The Shipwrights’ Company is keen to have a conversation with you if you're able to tell us: - How you would persuade: - SMEs to take on apprentices - young people to take up apprenticeships and - training providers to meet the needs of industry. - How you would promote the Scheme, identify new opportunities and convert them into apprenticeships. - About your successful track record in delivering financial and performance targets and your history of delivering brilliant customer service. - What motivates you and why a new challenge appeals to you. You will: - Be a self-starter who is passionate about promoting apprenticeships and encouraging SMEs and young people to take the plunge and begin a mutually beneficial apprenticeship. - Have a passion for and good understanding of the UK marine industry. - Be motivated to keep abreast of all legislative and financial developments affecting apprenticeships. - Have the character, understanding and depth of knowledge to mentor successful companies joining the scheme. - Continually assess the Scheme and have the confidence to make recommendations to the SA Scheme sub-committee as required. - Be an accomplished communicator, adept at using social media. - Able to develop exceptional relationships with colleagues, SMEs, training providers and apprentices.
