Become a data
analysis instructor

In Edinburgh

About us...

How would you like to join an award-winning organisation providing training for people across Scotland in digital technologies skills?

We are CodeClan, a digital skills academy with opportunities to join our data instructor team and guide the digital workforce of the future in their learning.

Due to the growth of our Professional Data Analysis course we now have vacancies in our campus in Edinburgh.

What we're looking for

Junior and mid-level data analysts who think they have what it takes to become an instructor on our Professional Data Analysis course.

We teach R, Python and SQL, so the ability to explain concepts in at least one of these is essential. We’re not hugely hung up on your being an expert on all of these – but you should be up for learning what you don’t already know.

We also teach all of the following so the more experience you have with them, the better:

  • Data cleaning
  • Data visualisation
  • Statistics
  • Shiny
  • Machine learning
  • Debugging

You're the right person if...

  • You’re a great communicator. You’re totally ok chatting and communicating how things should be done
  • You love showing people things and get a kick out of others getting that spark
  • You’re thrilled to stand up in front of people and show them how to build great software
  • You’ve got a solid understanding of data and programming, but you’re really keen to grow that even more
  • You don’t know everything – and you’re not expected to. But you’re damn good at finding out. You can show our students it’s ok to not know everything
  • You completely embrace coding as a life long learning practice
  • You love data and you’re passionate about teaching people

Being on the Instructor team at CodeClan

You’ll be part of a very welcoming and supportive team of other instructors from various backgrounds. We teach in cohort teams with two to four instructors per class, so you’ll never be taking a class on your own. We have a solid curriculum of course materials that you can teach from. Every day will be different for you. From helping students one-to-one, to doing code reviews and learning new skills. You’ll have personal development time to work on your own practice projects, building some notes for one of our courses or some small collaborative projects with other instructors

What we can offer

    • Salary offered depends on experience
    • 5% company pension
    • 35 days holiday every year that includes a mandated festive closure and an extra day holiday for your birthday
    • A supportive, nurturing human-first culture. We care about our staff and take your needs seriously.
    • Development weeks. You get time to work on something that’s not what we’re teaching.
    • Training opportunities including access to online training materials such as LinkedIn Learning and Udemy.
    • Supportive environment for growth including opportunities to attend conferences
    • ScotRail payment plan offer. We can buy your annual train ticket saving you money, and you just pay us back with no interest.
    • Medicash Plan: A way of claiming back some of your personal medical expenses like some dental, massages and eye-care.
    • Dedicated employee assistance: such as counselling sessions and discount vouchers.
    • Cycle to work scheme.
    • Life Assurance
