As a lifting equipment technical manager, no 2 days will be the same.

Demand for training has grown dramatically over the last few years and as it continues to grow, they will be looking for you to take a key role in managing that department

Your scope will include:
- Delivering lifting industry training courses both internally and externally for up to 3/4 days a week

Benefits:
- Up to £35k depending on qualifications and experience.
- Car (or allowance)

You will be based from the Stockton or Newcastle offices, but the majority of your time will be spent on site, delivering training or offering advice on projects. Flexible working is offered for the right people, if required.

You will be expected to travel to sites across the North East of England, with the occasional overnight stay, but this will be dependent on client requirements.
