The working groups are a good way of getting to branch out beyond my role to other things I’m interested in, and to work with different colleagues from across the organisation.

CJ, Curriculum Manager

It’s been wonderful to join and work alongside other charities in such a vibrant, central office space. The break-out spaces are fantastic and I love the focus they have on sustainability. It’s great to work somewhere that organises social events to get to know other co-workers, too!

Workplace awards

Best Companies Awards 2022

In 2022, Action Tutoring was proud to make the list of 100 Best Small Companies to work for. We are grateful to see our commitment to our employees and fantastic work culture recognised. Workplace engagement is a vital part of our organisation’s success, and our team are proud to work for Action Tutoring.

“Headspace for Work” Mindful Workplace Awards

In 2022 we delighted to receive the Rising Leader award in the 2022 “Headspace for Work” Mindful Workplace Awards.

Access to a Headspace subscription with Action Tutoring has been invaluable, in both my personal and professional life. The Sleepcasts and Wind Downs have helped me get more sleep, and the courses have helped me find a sense of calm when work and life is busy.

Aimee, Sussex Programme Coordinator

I really value and appreciate Action Tutoring’s focus on mental health and the existence of the Mental Health First Aid team. It ensures that I feel safe at work, and when times get tough, I have someone impartial and trained within the organisation to speak to, even if no solution is required.

Emma, Head of Programmes (South)

“After five years of working full time at Action Tutoring, I’ve been working four days a week.

I use Fridays to get Dad shopping for the week ahead and sometimes we go for breakfast (scrambled eggs for Dad, vegan cheese on toast for me!). Irrespective of what we do, the best bit of Fridays is knowing I can be there for my Dad without worrying about work, and moreover, spend quality time with him.”

– Hannah, Head of Philanthropy

We are working to do this by reviewing our job packs, hiring processes and recruitment channels.

We also offer inclusive benefits such as mental health and wellbeing support through our employee assistance programme and mental health first aiders.
