The post has been created as a result of an exciting and innovative Knowledge Transfer Partnership between the Eltherington Group Ltd and the School of Architecture and the Built Environment in the College of Arts at the University of Lincoln.

Eltherington manufacture cladding and glazing systems for the architectural, modular and leisure Industries. The architectural sector accounts for 15% of their revenue and is where the company strategically needs to grow. Eltherington has the capacity to produce a range of products, from single components to whole cladding systems, and these are fully performance tested using industry recognised CWCT standards.

We are looking to recruit an Associate with a strong undergraduate (first class or upper second class) degree in a built environment related discipline. This might include (but not exclusively) graduates of architecture; architectural technology / engineering; construction management / engineering; civil / mechanical engineering; and digital engineering / ICT. Previous experience of building design, building construction and digital engineering (CAD/CAM/BIM) in a practice environment, is desirable. Candidates would need to demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of the built environment industry, and of construction technology relating to building envelope design, construction and performance. We would particularly welcome recent graduates to apply for this position.

The KTP Associate will be employed by the University of Lincoln for 2 years but be based at Eltherington’s Main Works site in Hull and subject to its employment practices and conditions of work. The successful candidate will be supervised both by Eltherington and the School of Architecture and the Built Environment at the University of Lincoln.
