About the job

This role is for our software instructor team, so you’ll be involved in supporting students on our software course. There are opportunities to cross-skill into our data courses too if that’s a direction you’d like to take.
As a technical assistant, you’ll have the opportunity involved in 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

What we're looking for

Skills and attitude are far more important to us that your background and experience. You don’t need to be a teacher, lecturer or programming ninja to join our team. We’re looking for someone who is passionate about helping other people and willing to give new experiences a try. 

You do need some previous experience of software development from your work or studies preferably in Java or Javascript. We’re particularly interested in people with a passion for front-end technologies including HTML and CSS.
