The successful candidate will be well qualified with up to date knowledge in this specialist area, strong business acumen along with experience and ability to design, commercially competitive qualifications and products.

Working with a range of internal and external stakeholders the post holder will work closely with our commercial, marketing and quality assurance teams, mainly through advising and supporting other members of staff and our customers. You will also be required to travel throughout the UK to engage with customers, external partners, agencies and relevant regulators.

So, if you have a passion for these subject areas, with a flair for curriculum development and are interested in joining an innovative and forward looking company with a positive attitude, we would be happy to hear from you.
