Description       

A rare opportunity to be a part of our fast-growing technology company training groups of software apprentices. An ideal role for an experienced developer who might be looking to move into more formal teaching/training.

The company

Softwire provides software development services to medium-large sized UK businesses. Our HQ is based in London with growing offices in Manchester and Cambridge. We have a headcount of over 200 that comprises the top 1% of UK graduate developer talent.

We’ve featured in The Sunday Times Top 100 Best SMEs to work for 10 years running. This is testament to our exceptionally high levels of staff job satisfaction.

Softwire partners with an accredited apprenticeship provider to deliver training and materials for both Software Development and DevOps apprenticeships. You would be joining our team of Trainers and Skills Coaches to run both our 5 week bootcamps at the start of the apprenticeship and the ongoing workshops that follow.

Essential:

  • At least three years’ experience in industry with some combination of the following technologies:
  • Core web technologies, i.e. HTML & CSS
  • JavaScript
  • Experience with back-end development, ideally C# or Java
  • Experience with helping others develop their skills through coaching, teaching, mentoring, tutoring or something similar. This can have been as part of your professional role or informally through volunteering.
