The ideal start date is in early December and no later than the end of January 2022.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a recent graduate who is looking to develop their career within a design-led, fast paced, innovative manufacturing business to work as a KTP Associate. The role will be to lead on a project of transformation, bringing a novel and industry leading innovative automation solution to wood processing production.

Morgan Furniture is a wholly British, design orientated, business making seating and tables for the contract market from its dedicated 4500m2 factory in Hampshire.

Morgan believes the design and manufacture of truly original, high-quality furniture is the result of passion, care, design integrity, experience, craftsmanship and an unfaltering dedication to quality. This commitment could not be realised without fully integrating the design and manufacturing processes. At their factory and studio in Hampshire, Morgan starts the process with trees and finish with beautifully crafted chairs.

We're looking to employ a KTP Associate with a passion for manufacturing, automation, CAD/CAM, 3D Modelling and hands-on implementation.

The KTP Associate will be supported by leading Academics at Solent University to successfully implement a new production management solution. This will be achieved through research, selection and hands on implementation and evaluation. The project will also involve migration of work from current processes to the new automation solution, therefore integration of CAD/CAM solution and 3D modelling skills will be required to migrate existing CAD models to new automation solution. The project will also challenge current practices and realise improvements whilst building upon Morgan's embedded LEAN culture.

The successful candidate will be employed by Solent University, but will be based primarily at the company in Southbourne with some visits to Solent University. The role has a generous training budget of GBP3000 for the duration of the project. The role is for a fixed term of 18 months with very strong chances of a permanent employment in the company after the successful completion of this KTP project.

Informal enquiries can be made to KTP Academic Lead: Dr. Fayyaz Rehman
