E-Learning Project Manager

E-Learning Project Manager

Location: MSSC HQ, London SE1 7JW

Salary: £35K gross per annum.

Full time, Permanent.

MSSC (Marine Society and Sea Cadets)We believe that seafarers deserve access to life enhancing education wherever they are in the world. We enact this belief through Learn@Sea, our award winning digital education platform. Learn@Sea is a massive open online course platform for seafarers that hosts a growing portfolio of maritime contextualised education content. Over the last four years more than 17,000 seafarers have improved their English and Maths through Learn@Sea and some of world’s leading shipping companies have used our programmes to develop their crews’ skills.  This coupled with our new Digital Library App will enable more seafarers to gain access to a wider range of education and recreational resources tailored to their needs.

As E-Learning Project Manager you will have overall responsibility for the continued development of Learn@Sea including growing the portfolio of courses on offer, the number of individual learners with us, and the number of corporate users working with us on crew development.

This is a challenging role which is ideal for an entrepreneurial self-starter who has experience of project managing a suite of e-learning products and digital marketing within the maritime sector, and ideally has spent time at sea in either the Merchant or Royal Navy, though this is not essential. The E-Learning Project Manager will principally be responsible for:

  • Developing Marine Society’s Learn@Sea platform to grow the number and range of courses offered and the number of users on the platform.
  • Growing current revenue streams for the Charity by creating and implementing a sales and marketing strategy for the Learn@Sea and Digital Library products, and establishing new revenue streams by partnering with industry to create new and innovative product and service offerings.
  • Work with the Marine Society College team to develop and promote the Charity’s full education offering to seafarers, shipping companies, and the wider maritime sector.

The successful candidate will be set clear goals and have the freedom to achieve them as they see fit. This is a chance to continue to grow a world leading education service and help reinforce Marine Society as the preeminent organisation within the seafarer lifelong learning space, both in the UK and internationally.

The Marine Society team is small but highly efficient. The successful applicant will be expected to fit into this team and demonstrate an ability to work closely with other members. Support and encouragement are an integral part of the team’s work ethic. Specific roles and responsibilities are held by each member but there is a valuable interaction in all areas which aids the team-spirit and effectiveness of Marine Society.

Regardless of background, the individual will need to be able to demonstrate the ability to work effectively un-supervised and have the interpersonal skills and credibility to engage shipping companies and the maritime sector at senior level.

Applications should consist of a completed application form, and the completed equal opportunities monitoring form, both available from the website, CVs are optional.
