The National Centre for Food Manufacturing (NCFM) requires an Apprenticeship Coach and Reviewer to join our nationally leading apprenticeship team, supporting apprentices in many of the UK’s leading food manufacturing businesses. The NCFM is a major resource for the UK’s food manufacturing sector delivering skills, research, and support for innovation in partnership with over 250 leading food businesses.

You will have significant experience of working in a manufacturing industry (ideally food manufacturing), along with a passion for developing the skills of teams and individuals. Whilst experience of delivering training and assessment linked to apprenticeships is highly desirable, it is not essential, and the role would suit an industry professional looking for a career change and an opportunity to use their experience to benefit others. You will have the opportunity to be part of a dynamic team of professionals who are adept at working with businesses and supporting apprentices.

The NCFM is a satellite campus of the University, head-quartered on the South Lincolnshire Food Enterprise Zone in Holbeach in South Lincolnshire. Part of the Lincolnshire Institute of Technology (IoT), the NCFM has outstanding sector-focused facilities, including a state-of-the-art food factory demonstrating cutting edge food automation, Digital Food Manufacturing Technologies Centre, and flagship Centre of Excellence in Agri-food Technologies. Our clients include Coca-Cola, Bakkavor, Kraft Heinz, Nestle, and other leading businesses.

All our students are apprentices who study part-time, with distance learning supported by block release with electronic platforms Blackboard and OneFILE used for delivery. The role involves undertaking progress reviews with apprentices (mostly but not exclusively on-line) and liaising with employers and academic tutors and support services to aid the progress of apprentices and ensure successful outcomes for learners and their employers. NCFM’s apprenticeships span Level 3 to Level 6, across arrange of occupational routes; technical, processing and operations, supply chain and engineering.  

As one of the largest employers in the city, the University of Lincoln offers exciting career opportunities with the chance to grow and develop to reach your full potential. We also offer a wide range of staff benefits, including a generous annual leave allowance of 30 days per year pro rata (plus an additional 14 bank holiday and concessionary days), progressive pay rates, access to discounts at popular stores and more.   

If you wish to have an informal discussion regarding this role, please contact Val Braybrooks, Dean of Holbeach & NCFM, at [email protected] .
