Would you love to inspire & teach others about software engineering? Want to help shape the careers of young professionals? Join this EdTech and develop your skills to become a Coach - full training provided!

Driven by a social mission, the Coaches at Multiverse are developing a diverse group of future leaders by offering an outstanding alternative to university and corporate training via professional apprenticeships. Join the team and make an impact!

So what’s the job? 👀

As an Associate Coach, you benefit from 3 months training at the Multiverse Coach Academy, developing both your technical, coaching, and teaching skills.

You will have the opportunity to shadow their existing coaches to see how they deliver, learn the curriculum, and get involved in interacting and meeting apprentices as Teaching Assistants within the sessions their coaches deliver.

After completing the 3-month training you will develop into a fully-fledged Coach where you will be coaching and mentoring 40-60 learners through their apprenticeship, introducing them to technical skills specific to their program, but also softer skills to help them navigate through the working world.

The Coach role allows you to develop your own experience (they have a highly experienced team) as well as in teaching/mentoring, whilst helping develop a diverse group of future leaders. 

Your role will be delivering a mixture of small group workshops and boot camps plus one-to-one sessions, and supporting apprentices across incredibly exciting businesses to become the next generation of data leaders.

If you love inspiring and teaching others about software engineering, get a buzz from seeing young professionals develop and learn new skills, and truly care about building the next generation of developers, this is the role for you!

What does the Programme I would be teaching once trained look like? ✏️

Great question! You will be delivering a BCS Level 4 Software Developer apprenticeship program. For more information, here is a link to the BCS standards: https://www.instituteforapprenticeships.org/apprenticeship-standards/software-developer/

Do I fit the bill? 🕵️

  • Passionate about teaching and love the detail of developing an effective learning experience
  • A player-coach: you can provide guidance, support, and encouragement harnessing your experience to support people to kick start their career in software development
  • Technical: you have in-depth knowledge/ commercial experience of web development using technologies such as JavaScript, HTML, and CSS.
  • Bonus if you have knowledge/experience in Node.js, React, Java, or any object-oriented program language.

Company Description

Multiverse, a tech startup with a social mission. They're building an outstanding alternative to university and corporate training, to develop a diverse group of future leaders. Their impact focuses on three core areas: measuring potential beyond academics, delivering world-class job-focused training via applied learning, and helping diverse groups of young people build social capital through a thriving community.

They are one of the fastest growing businesses in Europe and also rapidly expanding in North America, working with over 300 clients including Facebook, Morgan Stanley, KPMG, Kantar, Citi and Microsoft.

They started 2021 with the UK’s largest ever EdTech funding round - a $44m Series B. Since then they've opened their New York office, and been awarded “Outstanding” by OFSTED (the UK government’s education regulator) across every category. In September 2021, they broke the funding record again with a $130m Series C raise.

They are looking for exceptional people to join them as they create something genuinely radical that will replace the way people think about accessing careers and how they learn.
