Based in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, Tameside College is a further education college that offers a wide range of courses including Full-Time, Part-Time, Apprenticeships and University Level. We aim to give all our students an exceptional experience.

We believe in excellence and we back that up with high standards, real working environments and great teaching. We also believe that attending college is about more than achieving a qualification, important though that is. That is why we aim to give every person the opportunity to develop their full potential in a supportive and friendly environment.

We are now looking to recruit for a Technical Support Officer to join us to facilitate high quality learning through the support of students by providing physical, technical and administrative support within the work area of construction particularly focusing on carpentry and joinery provision.

Providing instruction and demonstration to a diverse range of students, including the supervision of students on approved equipment under the guidance of a Teacher, you will undertake activity to ensure the workshops are kept in a safe and tidy condition and provide maintenance, repair and remedial action as appropriate to equipment and resources. 

Candidates for this role must have the ability to perform a technical support role to contribute to effective learning and ideally have experience of carpentry and joinery and the use of woodworking machinery. Able to plan and organise areas of work, you will have a relevant level 2 qualification or equivalent and good communication and IT skills. The ability to provide basic routine maintenance would also be desirable.
