Manufacturing Liaison Assistant

Posted: 01/07/2022

Blue Ridge Community College seeks an energetic manufacturing career services assistant to work in support of BRCC’s manufacturing training expansion efforts.  This position will report directly to the Regional Manufacturing Liaison and provide assistance in the implementation of projects that support manufacturers in the area.  

With a recent $5 Million grant, BRCC has worked to strengthen curriculum alignment and provide a pool of strong, well-prepared graduates to fill vacancies in manufacturing and to create a winning training model.  Recent efforts with manufacturers include a program called “Jobstarter” that has received considerable attention statewide and is being expanded.  This position will provide enthusiastic support to the students and employers involved keeping both engaged and interacting in the implementation of the Jobstarter training program.  Serving as the primary point of contact for the program inquirers and then, ultimately, students, the assistant will provide quality care and encouragement throughout the program and will convene community partners, including the employers, on an as needed basis to ensure the program’s viability and success.
