You deserve a job you love. We've got one for you.

About the role

You want to be more than just an assessor or apprenticeships trainer : you want to help people build fantastic careers at an unbelievable rate, which will help them and the people they work with change their lives for the better.

As an Apprenticeships Placement Coach you'll be responsible for empowering our software engineers to succeed whatever that means for the developers.

With your educational focus, you'll help developers advance their understanding and collect evidence of their progress. You'll help them to understand the requirements of their level 4 Apprenticeship qualification, and help them to overcome any team and workplace obstacles.

You will help them grow into their role, coaching them to work better with clients, or even help them take on leadership roles in their teams.

You'll have the freedom to act in a way that you believe is right for the company. You'll have a genuine say in the way the business is run, and the environment in which you work.

You'll be encouraged to identify problems and solve them; and to seek out new opportunities and pursue them. In short, you'll have a voice that will be heard and valued.

What you'll be doing

You will be the main point of contact for our learners, empowering them to solve their own problems, and helping to remove anything that may hinder their progress.

You will be responsible for setting up regular meetings across the UK with each Apprentice and their Line Manager. You are passionate about tech, and you will have the support of our technical coaches to support you with specific code-related problems.

Where required, you'll be supporting learners with Functional Skills attainment, keeping tuition relevant and effective.

You won't just help developers navigate challenges, but also be their guide in charting a course through the immense learning opportunities of their early careers making sure no opportunity goes unexplored, and ensuring they end their placement year competent and accomplished.

Imagine the mentor you wish you had at the start of your career that's your role.
