Multi-million pound STEM centre opening in the North East

More than 25 jobs have been created at Middlesbrough College thanks to the opening of a £12m engineering centre.

The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Centre is set to open its doors in September and applications are now being taken for a variety of roles.

There are currently 25 jobs advertised by the college but this could rise to 35 - with roles including a STEM Operations Manager, Process/Instrumentation Centre Leader, Manufacturing Centre Leader, Technical Trainers/Lecturers and Support Technicians.

Zoe Lewis, principal and chief executive, said: "Middlesbrough College is seeking dynamic professionals who are currently working in industry, in the teaching profession or who have recently graduated, with a background in Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths.

"Successful candidates will train people on all levels, from beginners wanting to work in the sector to those already working in industry who want to improve their skills.

"The college is working with leading employers to ensure the centre offers training in the very latest techniques and processes and we need the right staff in place to deliver that.

"We are offering a highly competitive salary package, a great pension scheme and generous holiday entitlement as well as an extensive professional development programme."

The centre is being built for Middlesbrough College by Esh Build and is part of a wider £20m investment in STEM facilities at the college.

It will specialise in advanced manufacturing, process oil and gas, digital technologies, warehousing and logistics and engineering disciplines.

The centre - which is being backed by companies including Huntsman, Johnson Matthey, Lotte Chemical UK, Caterpillar UK, Tees Components, Sabic, Amec Foster Wheeler, Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies, PD Ports, NIFCO and Sembcorp Utilities - will replicate typical industrial environments and will include fully functional chemical and oil processes which will be monitored and operated from a high tech control room.

A real life lean manufacturing facility is included that incorporates a robotic controlled production line, supported by a warehousing and logistics training operation.
