Assistant Director - Explore Learning

Explore Learning is an ambitious and fast growing company dedicated to making a difference in children’s education.

We recruit bright graduates who want to make an impact - both on running our centres as a business, and on the lives of our members who attend. Explore offers you the opportunity to take a hands on approach to management from day one. A high level of responsibility and extensive training will allow you to thrive and rapidly progress your career. You can enjoy real job satisfaction and gain the skills to develop a small business successfully.

Explore Learning Top 100 Employer
In 2014 Explore Learning were ranked 47th best company to work for in the UK by The Times Top 100. Explore Learning were praised in particular for their excellent staff training and well structured career development. As a result they were ranked 2nd overall for Personal Growth.

Candidates must be:
• Enthusiastic and confident to promote Explore Learning at any opportunity.
• Professional, articulate and persuasive.
• Willing and able to take responsibility for the success of a centre.
• Passionate about helping children achieve their potential & able to build a strong rapport.
• Highly motivated with a bright enthusiastic personality.
• Ambitious to enhance their professional development and become a Centre Director.

Skills Required
Some experience of working with children is essential, 2:1 degree in any discipline, grade B at GCSE or equivalent level maths and English.

The Role of Assistant Director
You will gain broad business experience, learning to promote, market and sell a new concept in education; how to operate a business unit, and be responsible for the recruitment and development of a team of tutors as part of the Management team. We also hope you will embrace the opportunity to progress to Centre Director within 12-24 months where you will directly supervise staff and have overall responsibility for the Centre’s development, operations and profitability.

The role of Assistant Director is varied, challenging and very rewarding; offering you the chance to gain broad business experience, while working in a fun environment to benefit children. Starting as an Assistant Director you will be in a team of three, either launching a new centre or running an established centre. The key to the success of each centre is down to the three managers: the Centre Director and two Assistant Directors. The full time team are graduates, all sharing a passion for education and the desire to help children reach their full potential.

What we are Looking For
Assistant Directors need to be willing to take on the responsibility to drive forward the growth and development of our learning centres using their promotional and managerial strengths.

All applicants MUST be eligible to work in the UK.

We offer a competitive salary of £21,000 PA (plus London weighting). A target based monthly bonus scheme with the potential to earn up to £2,880 PA.

How to Apply
Our recruitment process runs all year round as we continue to launch new centres throughout the year. Opportunities arise in both our new and existing centres, so please apply for any settings.

We recommend applying early if you are interested in working in a particular centre/region at a specific time, that way we can offer you a position early and will put you ahead of other applicants interested in the same area.

We also accept deferred applications if you have not graduated yet or are thinking of travelling.
