Software Development Skills Coach – Leeds/Manchester

Are you a Software Developer professional or graduate looking for an exciting new challenge?

Do you have a passion for Software Development?

If you have answered yes then read on to find out more…

Your role

We are looking for candidates who have experience of working in a Software development or Software testing role.  We are keen to hear from people who have experience of working with JAVA, C# or C++.  Having the practical experience of working within the IT industry, this will enable a Technical Skills Coach to coach and mentor learners on Apprenticeship funded programmes at their workplace locations.   

Working autonomously and managing your own diary, you will have the flexibility to schedule face to face and remote contact sessions with your caseload of learners.

Your team

Covering the Leeds/Manchester area, 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!

Financial package and benefits

We are offering a base salary of up to £33,000 + 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, higher education qualification accompanied with significant industry experience in Software Development (Java/Opensource/C#/SQL), with a sound technical knowledge and understanding of different software.

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/A1 qualification would be ideal, however as mentioned, it is not essential.
