Part Time Finance Manager


Gloucestershire Engineering Training – Barnwood, Gloucester
Salary – FTE £35,000 - £40,000 (25 hours)

About our organisation

Gloucestershire Engineering Training has been providing work-based learning in engineering for 40 years. We train apprentices in Mechanical, Electrical, Maintenance, Welding & Fabrication and also offer a dual skill programme for those employers who require multi-skilled individuals.

We are the only training facility in the County that is run by the Manufacturing & Engineering industry for the Engineering Industry. We currently provide training services to the biggest engineering and manufacturing organisations within Gloucestershire across a diverse range of engineering specialisms from aeronautical to intelligent communication systems; from the production of drill bits to credit cards.

We provide learners with the basic underpinning knowledge and skills required across all facets of engineering within their first year of training, and then focus on their chosen career pathway or specialism once the learners have returned to their employer's premises.
