Your role
As an Assessor, you will be managing a caseload of up to 50 learners on our Software Development Apprenticeship programme. Supporting learners through successful completion of their programme by providing guidance and help to them and their employers.

Within your role, you will maintain regular contact with your learners & employers to assist with the development of those individuals and ensure they receive the best learning outcomes and customer service.

Having previous experience in a similar role would be a bonus, but if you have not, don’t fret; as part of our commitment to you, we will be putting you through Coaching and Mentoring training so that you can become a fully qualified Skills Coach!

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to truly use your knowledge and expertise within Software Development to support and encourage learners through their apprenticeship programme - all whilst working autonomously and managing your own time.

Your team & Development
You will be required to work closely with the Regional Delivery Manager and Head of Delivery. The position will require travel across multiple sites (depending on where your learners are based) so having your own transport is a must!

CPD Opportunities:
With a very large portfolio of QA Technology courses, there will be opportunities to attend and get certified in courses from:
Oracle Java certifications
Agile Foundation
Microsoft C# Programming certifications

Financial package and benefits
We are offering up to £38,000 base salary per annum (DOE), £3,600 car allowance, private pension as well as 25 days holiday, 2 days paid Charity work each year for a charity of your choice, 3 days of additional training from our very own course selection (1,200 to be precise), subsidised gym membership and cycle to work scheme.

Your background
You will need to hold a degree or higher education qualification in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Software Development, Software Design or Software Testing. Have industry experience in the areas of Software Development, with a sound technical knowledge. Certifications in MSP, MCSD, MCSA, C#, Oracle or Java are desirable. It is a given with the nature of the role that excellent communication is key, with a desire to work in a coaching/mentoring environment. Holding an existing CAVA qualification would be ideal, however as mentioned, it is not essential.
