Contract Manager

Join JTL as a Contract Manager and you won’t simply help us develop tomorrow’s plumbers and electricians. You will help us challenge boundaries, set standards of performance and drive innovation and effectiveness in the growing building services engineering sector.

But then, that's the kind of challenge your whole career has been preparing you for.

Your role? To coordinate and support JTL’s college and training centre provision across your region. This will involve more than ensuring that training is cost-effective, high quality and focused on the development and welfare needs of apprentices. You will actively negotiate tenders, manage contracts, identify new training opportunities and facilitate industry-leading standards of service.

In addition to building strong relationships with colleagues and partners, you will drive our Equality and Diversity agenda and promote JTL to the sector across the region. And within colleges and training centres, your activities will range from developing timetables and running inductions to placing new recruits and managing the delivery of our Basic and Key Skills Builder (BKSB) tests.

Along with a good level of education (including English and Maths at grade A-C or equivalent), you will need strong time management, organisational and administrative skills. You must also combine good IT skills with the ability to manipulate spreadsheets and databases. A good understanding of current safeguarding and equality legislation is essential and you will ideally have a recognised Health & Safety qualification such as IOSH Managing Safely. Any knowledge or experience of work-based learning or government-funded training provision would, of course, be a real advantage. You also need a driving licence and use of a car.

In return, we can promise you an attractive salary, benefits including a pension and life insurance, ongoing professional development and tremendous control over your own schedule.
