About the job

This role is for our data delivery team, so you’ll be involved in teaching, curriculum development and supporting students in the data space. There are opportunities to cross-skill into our software courses too if that’s a direction you’d like to take.

As an assistant instructor, you’ll be get to see all aspects of the student journey from when they first start with us at a Meet Your Cohort session, right through to them graduating and getting jobs. 

We like to stay in touch with our Alumni community so you’ll get to see them grow and develop in their careers when we hold our regular Alumni events. There’s nothing quite like that experience of seeing someone you helped make their own mark on the industry.

Responsibilities

  • Teach lessons alongside the rest of the cohort team
  • Own the student experience for labs and homeworks with assistance from your cohort team
  • Mentor Technical Assistants to help them support students and debug project work
  • Ensure that students get clear feedback on their progress
  • Develop your own teaching style
  • Use your experience to adapt and improve course materials

What we're looking for

You do need some previous experience of working with data in an academic or business environment using R, Python or SQL, but it’s ok if data wasn’t the main focus of your work. If you have skills in any 2 of these areas, please apply. We’re experienced in training so we will support you to learn what you don’t know.

  • Mentoring, coaching, training or experience as a teaching assistant
  • Using Python/R/SQL for data analysis
  • Writing course materials

What we can offer

  • 5% company pension contribution
  • 35 days holiday every year (includes a mandated festive closure and an extra holiday for your birthday)
