Offering specialist technical courses, A-Levels and T Levels, Sunderland College has vacancies for lecturers, instructors, and support staff in areas such as finance, administration, human resources, data analysis, exams invigilation, estates management and more.

Helen Willan, HR Business Partner, said: “Every day our staff inspire young people and adults to achieve their potential, life ambitions and career goals through education and training, or provide an essential support service that contributes to the success of the organisation.

“We are looking forward to meeting people who think they would be a great fit within one of our teams. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a job or career change to visit one of our recruitment fairs and find out more about working with us.

“There is no need to pre-register for the events and appropriate Covid measures will be in place.”
