At the Co-operative College, we truly believe that great things happen when people co-operate.

This exciting and challenging new role is to actively co-ordinate, organise and support the regional delivery of our projects, primarily by leading “co-operative enterprise” training and identifying ongoing opportunities for young people and those from disenfranchised groups including those with learning difficulties and disabilities (LDD) or autism with the support of an LDD specialist (the Partner Support Officer). Full and ongoing training will be provided.

You will have experience developing content and/or delivering enterprise projects or a related subject, or able to demonstrate a good practical understanding of enterprise.
