We request applications, by CV and covering letter, to be sent to our recruitment email address [email protected], or through the link on the job advert. Once we have shortlisted, we then invite successful applicants to interview.
Interview dates are available on the jobs pack. Our interviews usually last around an hour and involve face to face competency based questions and an exercise that is relevant to the role.
Our main office is in Wapping, London, but we also have staff based in Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield and Sussex.
At Action Tutoring all staff are required to have a DBS check. Should you have any cautions or convictions that would show up on an enhanced DBS check, you should declare this with your application. Having a caution or conviction does not necessarily preclude you from working for the organisation, depending on the nature of the conviction. If you require further information, you can request to see a copy of our ‘Recruitment of Ex-Offenders Policy’.
We do accept speculative CVs for our programme and curriculum roles, click to view a standard job description. If a role is not currently advertised and you would like to see a job description, please email us with the location you are interested in and we can share it with you.
We don’t currently have the capacity to offer these opportunities, but have many opportunities for volunteering. You can find out about volunteer tutor opportunities through our website, here, or if you are interested in supporting us through volunteering in another way get in touch at [email protected].
We all work from home (or a café) from time to time. We encourage everyone to work from home where the role allows. We have a flexible policy for working hours, and offer TOIL. We also have a number of part-time employees. Our London office space offers break out areas, meeting rooms and quiet areas for phone calls.
We recognise the importance of diversity in our team, and are actively working to try and increase it through our recruitment processes and internal policies to create an environment that welcomes and supports a diverse workforce. Some of the ways we are working to do this include reviewing our recruitment pack, processes and channels. We also offer inclusive benefits such as mental health and wellbeing support through our employee assistance programme and mental health first aiders. All of our staff have completed unconscious bias training and we will continue to make this part of the onboarding process. We are a parent-friendly workplace with enhanced parental leave policies, flexible working opportunities and paid leave for childcare emergencies.
