Joining Action Tutoring is a dream job of mine as I have previously studied it as part of my MSc as far back as 2018 and have since supported it personally. I love Action Tutoring’s commitment to measuring its impact and am proud to work for somewhere that seeks to support disadvantaged young people to achieve academically. The culture here at Action Tutoring is kind, hardworking, supportive and solution focused, and everyone is always willing to take time out of their busy schedules to help others. Many organisations say they live their values, but  Action Tutoring really does.

I enjoy the variety of my role and that no two days (or even hours!) are the same.

What I like most about AT is the “can do” mentality and adjusting our procedures and delivery so that we can support our pupils as best we can. It’s about teamwork!

In my role I have the privilege of working closely with all departments and bringing the team together. I love the feeling you get when you complete an HR project and that the outcome really benefits the team because of the close collaboration.

As a non-native English speaker, I love the proofreading team. It’s the first time I’ve worked in a place where this exists. It gives me confidence in my communications and I feel less pressured by the need to have perfect written communication in order to be successful.

Action Tutoring is unique in the supportive culture it creates and I enjoy working alongside so many talented and passionate colleagues. Everyone is committed to delivering the best for our pupils!

My role as Operations Manager allows me to get involved in so many varied tasks including recruitment and resource provision, as well as developing key skills like project management.

The three days winter office closure allows me to spend time with my family over the winter period without needing to use my annual leave. It’s an incredibly generous part of the many benefits Action Tutoring has on offer!

I really enjoy working with a whole group of people that are all striving for a common goal and push each other every day to meet shared high standards. I also enjoy the fact that I can interact with different stakeholders across the organisation.

I value the organisation’s working groups as they provide numerous opportunities for personal development. Additionally, I really appreciate flexitime as it allows me to manage my role with a part-time MA in Education.

I enjoy the working environment at Action Tutoring. The team are supportive, positive, and passionate about the organisation’s mission, and there are opportunities to work across departments should you wish. There are also wellbeing initiatives in place to support us and our mental health.

I was a maths tutor for with Action Tutoring for 18 months prior to working here. I got to know the organisation more in that time and learnt it was the right fit for me.

I love how much Action Tutoring care about people. It’s value to make education accessible to all is why I loved being a teacher so I know I’m in the right place. It also helps that the team have been so lovely and patient whilst I learn my way around!

I’m loving the diversity of the role – you never seem to be doing the same thing day to day! I’m looking forward to the team days and love the hybrid working in the beautiful office space.

I’m looking forward to continuing to help Action Tutoring’s mission – to give all children equal opportunities to reach their full potential and bridge the attainment gap.

I have received a warm welcome from the team. There are so many opportunities to connect with others during the working day – just what you need when it’s been so gloomy outside lately!

I love engaging with people from different walks of life. One of the best things about Action Tutoring is that is attracts a vast range of tutors. Learning about their backgrounds and stories of why they decided to volunteer with Action Tutoring is one of the best parts of my week!

I am so pleased that Action Tutoring offers flexitime and the 3 days off in winter. This makes life as a working mum so much easier and it’s lovely to see that Action Tutoring recognises that.
