Everyone deserves a job they love. Makers Academy retrains career-changers as software developers and helps them find that job.
You deserve a job you love. We’ve got one for you:
Makers Academy is at the start of a hockey-stick rate of growth thanks to the launch of two new products. We need your help to scale-up even faster by ensuring UK employers have access to the talent they desperately need to grow; your work will have direct impact on the UK economy as a whole.
You’ll be connecting with the UK’s largest employers and helping them solve their tech recruitment problems and Agile transformation. You’ll be actively consulting with our clients, understanding their needs and, if relevant, connecting them to the talent we train, Makers. This often involves helping our clients to improve their recruitment practices, helping them to be more inclusive and better at identifying talent. You can read about our overall approach on our blog.
You’ll be responsible for solving complex problems for large corporates by navigating their internal structures and building long-lasting relationships. You’ll use your experience with strategic consultancy to mentor and coach your peers in the Careers team, which is currently ~10 people. Over time, as you keep delivering value to new clients and better understand how we operate, you’ll be invited to help us bring about changes in the way we operate as a team, to enable us to scale efficiently
You’ll have the freedom to act in a way that you believe is right for the company. You’ll have a genuine say in the way the business is run, and the environment in which you work. You’ll be encouraged to identify problems and solve them; and to seek out new opportunities and pursue them. In short, you'll have a voice that will be heard and valued.
Success in this role looks like:
We’re building a working environment (and recruitment process) where everyone feels welcome and included - we think we’re doing a good job of that so far, but we know can do a lot better, and we’re committed to learning what more we can do to improve. If reading this job description has given you any doubt about whether you’d feel welcome or included at Makers Academy, first, we’re sorry; and second, we’d really like to hear from you about it, so we don’t do it again.
