North East college creates 50 jobs in plans to accelerate growth

A North East college has announced that it will be creating 50 new jobs in its latest recruitment drive.

Middlesbrough College is continuing with its growth plans to accommodate for an “all-time high” student enrolment for September.

The positions available will include teaching roles, business support, apprentices and hourly paid roles.

Zoe Lewis, principal and chief executive at Middlesbrough College, commented: “It’s a deeply unsettling time for everyone but we want you to know that Middlesbrough College continues to operate at the heart of the community.

“This is about looking after the future of Teesside.

“We hope these new jobs will offer opportunities for many people who find themselves recently out of work.

“The new jobs are a response to higher than ever student numbers – across last year and next – following our successes across A Levels, vocational training, apprenticeships, higher education and adult learning.

“We already have state-of-the-art facilities – including our £20m STEM training centre, MC6 sixth form and Waterside Brasserie Restaurant, to name a few – but it’s not just the environment that make the success, it’s the people, and we have the best there are.

“Welcoming new members of staff will mean we can continue to deliver first-class standards of teaching and learning – helping us to produce the most employable, work-ready students in the North East.”
