We bring together employers and education to focus action on skills.

Due to expansion, we are looking for two Regional Managers to join our International team and lead our engagement in both the Indian and MENA and China and SE Asia (ASEAN) markets.

All of these markets have been identified as priority areas in our international strategy. We have current delivery interests in Oman, India, China and Indonesia all of which are expected to provide an ideal springboard to further develop our international activity.

Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) has a hugely important role to play in the economic transformation of these regions and the focus that these jobs will provide will help Semta Group to make a valuable contribution to this exciting agenda.

Working with clients, internal and external delivery resource, you will design, deliver and evaluate solutions leading to positive impacts in the social and economic measures of the appropriate regions and secure ongoing income for the Semta Group. Reporting to the International Development Director, you will focus on developing business opportunities and identify and secure profitable income for our business.

Globally recognisable and certificated skills and standards are in huge demand in these markets which makes for an excellent match to our international offer.
