STEM Coordinator Marine Engineering Pathway (MEP) - Scotland

Full time, fixed term until December 2018.

Marine Society and Sea Cadets (MSSC) is the nation’s largest maritime charity and the governing charity of the Sea Cadet Corps (SCC), a civilian voluntary youth organisation comprising some 400 or so volunteer Sea Cadet Units, throughout the UK. The SCC offers a wide range of youth opportunities with the same enduring objective – to foster good citizenship in the community.

This role forms part of a joint project between the Sea Cadets and Seafarers UK.

We are currently seeking to appoint a Regional STEM Coordinator Marine Engineering Pathway (MEP) to deliver Marine Engineering workshops in schools across Scotland in order to raise awareness and interest in Marine Engineering as a potential career choice. You will also be involved in the ongoing development of the Marine Engineering Programme as part of this new and exciting project.

You will also play a key part in making Marine Engineering training more accessible to cadets and helping them understand how the skills they develop are aligned to RN and Maritime Careers.

The successful candidate will have a strong background in STEM and education and the passion to inspire young people, particularly those who are currently under represented in the maritime sector. You will also have some teaching or training experience, and the ability to implement new and innovative training projects as part of the organisation’s strategic objectives in what is a challenging and exciting role.

The role will involve lots of travel in a charity vehicle with a trailer, so a full driving licence with category B+E are also required. This role is based at our centre in Rosyth, but there will be significant travel across Scotland.
