Are you an Electrician looking to enhance your career?

If so, Greater Brighton Metropolitan College are looking for experienced and qualified Electricians to help teach and inspire the next generation of tradespeople.


Perhaps you have experience of training apprentices in the work-place or enjoy passing on your knowledge and skills to others. Perhaps you are looking for a new challenge or would like to change your working environment to take advantage of the exceptional conditions we offer to teachers. Maybe you feel it’s time to take a break from driving up and down the country, chasing out walls and carrying tools around.


You may even be interested in teaching but want to continue with your current role and do some teaching on a part-time basis or you may just fancy a change. Whichever way, this could be the opportunity you have been waiting for.


We’re not just looking for anyone though; we are looking for enthusiastic, knowledgeable and inspirational individuals that like a challenge. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have teaching qualifications, we can help you with that. We will support suitable candidates to gain teaching and assessing qualifications.
