About Cranfield Safety and Accident Investigation Centre
The Cranfield Safety and Accident Investigation Centre is a specialist group dedicated to the development and delivery of teaching, research and consultancy in accident / incident investigation, safety, human factors, risk management and within safety critical sectors including air, rail and marine transport, and more recently, also in healthcare and construction.
We are internationally recognised for our comprehensive range of continuing professional development (CPD) courses and four MSc programmes in; Safety & Accident Investigation; Safety & Human Factors in Aviation; Aviation Safety Management, Risk & Regulation; and Airworthiness. We also host a prestigious PhD programme and conduct industry-focused research and consultancy for clients ranging from operators and manufacturers through to regulators and accident investigation agencies.
About the Role
We have recently developed a new academic programme in collaboration with CAAi (the technical cooperation, consulting and aviation training arm of the UK Civil Aviation Authority) that leads to an MSc in Aviation Safety Management, Risk and Regulation and which meets the requirements for the Level-7 Apprenticeship Standard for ‘Risk and Safety Management Professional’.
We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and capable individual to help to manage this new programme and to support the potential development of other apprentice-based programmes (knows as Masterships ®).
The successful applicant will hold a degree or equivalent experience in aviation safety management, human factors, safety regulation, risk management or related subject area. They will have experience of working within an academic administrative setting and knowledge of the National Apprenticeship system. We are looking for someone with excellent communication skills and the ability to build and sustain relationships across a diverse organisation and with external stakeholders.
Our shared, stated values help to define who we are and underpin everything we do: Ambition; Impact; Respect; and Community. Find out more here. We aim to create and maintain a culture in which everyone can work and study together and realise their full potential.
Diversity and Inclusion
Our equal opportunities and diversity monitoring has shown that **women and/OR** minority ethnic groups are currently underrepresented within the university and so we actively encourage applications from eligible candidates from these groups.
We actively consider flexible working options such as part-time, compressed or flexible hours and/or an element of homeworking, and commit to exploring the possibilities for each role. Find out more here.
