Salary range: £28,756 - £32,344

FTE: 1

Term: Fixed (to February 2023) 

Closing Date: 30 June 2022

 

 

The Department of Design, Manufacturing and Engineering Management seeks to appoint a Facilitator as part of the team for a project funded through the Low Carbon Challenge Fund (LCCF) delivered in partnership with the European Structural and Investment Funds Programme 2014-2020.

 

The Supply Chain Development for Lifetime Extension and Reuse (EXTEND) Project is based within the Design, Manufacturing and Engineering Management (DMEM) Department at the University of Strathclyde. The EXTEND project targets three key sectors; aerospace, rail and renewables and addresses the challenges around life extension and repurposing of assets. It focusses on engaging SMEs who traditionally have had some or little involvement in the identified sectors and supporting their journey from opportunity identification to technical capability demonstration.  This will be carried out with a focus on reducing the carbon footprint and adopting business models more in alignment with a circular economy approach. The project will support SMEs to be more innovative and engaged in new supply chains while at the same time helping to prepare the companies to respond to new and growing markets. A need also exists to prepare the workforce through training. The project is carried out in partnership with East Ayrshire Council, South Ayrshire Council and South Lanarkshire Council.

 

The Facilitator will support the team in several areas including progress tracking, reporting, financial management, and engagement activities.
