Hours: 40 hours per week (Monday – Friday)
Location: Middlesbrough Hub (Boho Zone)
About the Job:
Our Employer Engagement Consultant will be responsible for engaging with Teesside businesses to identify and create apprenticeship opportunities for young people. Working alongside our marketing, talent recruitment and employer engagement teams we will develop a strong team ethos and spirit, supporting the overall business goals, whilst having fun along the way.
This is a brand new role, created as part of Baltic Apprenticeships’ new city-centre hub network in the North East, starting with Newcastle and Teesside. The Teesside Hub is based in Middlesbrough’s Boho Zone, a hotbed of digital innovation, home to an ever-growing number of digital, tech, and gaming businesses. This is an exciting opportunity to make the role entirely your own, and to carve out a space for Baltic apprentices within Teesside’s rapidly scaling IT, Digital and Tech sector. You will be working alongside a small and supportive team of colleagues working in similar roles.
The main responsibilities in this role include setting up and attending business development meetings with customers, developing relationships with digital and IT businesses in the area, coordinating with recruitment colleagues to fulfil apprenticeship vacancies created, and educating local employer networks on the benefits of apprenticeship training programmes.
