The role:

The Agriculture department at KMC boasts a 280ha commercially run mixed farm (dairy and sheep) and provides opportunities for staff and learners to work with a variety of machinery across arable, grazing and parkland. The application of practical to theory lessons is endless across the agricultural curriculum and current teachers are keen (and encouraged!) to get their learners working practically as much as possible.

With a growing student body, clear industry links to local farming communities and exciting changes in course delivery (including a new suite of University level courses in our purpose built HE centre) our Agriculture department is committed to the development of young farmers in the South West!

For this teaching role, we are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated agricultural engineer, who will have the ability and desire to deliver high quality, inspiring lessons and practical teaching sessions across various levels of agricultural learners within our workshop space and specialist teaching areas

Suitable applicants should be competent in their understanding and ability with the following topics:

  • Key workshop practices including housekeeping and maintenance; using hand and power tools, safe use of workshop equipment, fasteners and the assembly and reassembly of machinery engines/components.
  • Operating, maintaining and servicing a variety of transmission systems in land-based vehicles and machinery.
  • Key principles of fabrication, joining and welding techniques for land-based machinery.
  • Maintaining and testing a range of electrical system types and components in land-based vehicles and machinery.
  • Understanding hydraulic system circuit types and components, with an ability to dismantle, inspect and reassemble hydraulic systems in land-based vehicles and machinery.

The role promises a varied and interesting workload!

A flexible and positive attitude is required alongside the ability to challenge and motivate learners.

The role would suit someone who has worked in industry and is now seeking a new challenge.
