Job description: GWO Training Instructor x2

Subject to an initial training period of 2-3 months depending on competency and experience. The training instructor will be expected to deliver company training programmes within the specified training procedures and accredited standards, for GWO. This includes a number of theory, discussion and practical elements across the modules; fire awareness, first aid, manual handling and working at height. The nature of GWO training is very practical and the instructor is therefore required to be able to demonstrate a number of course elements in a simulated wind turbine environment, therefore requiring a level of climbing competency and fitness.
The key tasks include:
- Carry out company and Accredited training programmes and provision of training procedures as required.
- Complete training documentation and records as required
- Develop and improve training equipment and facilities as appropriate in line with the Technical Director.
- Maintain training facilities and training equipment
- Carry out product inspections, maintenance and re-certification of products.
- Assist with the organisation and participation in exhibitions when required
- Liaise with partner companies, specialist suppliers and organisations as required.
- Implement effective health and safety including, writing, updating and following risk assessments, safe systems of work and company procedures.
- Act as Fire Marshalls and First Aiders, and implement the company Health and Safety practices at all times.
- Provide effective support and communication to customers and other team members especially internal sales administration, sales and directors.
- Maintain company systems and procedures including enquiries, quotations and quality and training procedures. Auditing and review of customer feedback.
- Carry out other duties as requested by the company such as site inspections, onsite training, overseas training and audits.
The role would suit somebody already working in wind energy, ideally in a supervisory role, safety role or with suitable turbine experience. GWO certifications are an advantage but anyone with a teaching/training background and the relevant working at height experience would be considered. It goes without saying the person must be comfortable working at height.
