Who we are:

Our mission is to accelerate incredible careers and develop a diverse group of future leaders. Sounds like an ambitious goal, and you would be right!

We’re currently looking for an incredible Accounting coach to create and deliver exceptional accounting training for our apprentices as they progress through their AAT qualifications, and you’ll be in the thick of the action.

You’ll be helping us achieve our bigger target by building a business which can match non-graduate talent with apprenticeship opportunities at some of the UK's most exciting companies like Just Eat, Treatwell and Google. By delivering training in partnership with world-class content providers, through a combination of 1:1 coaching and cutting-edge tech, we offer apprenticeships that genuinely rival the learning experience at elite universities.

So not only will you be working on some incredibly challenging problems, but also giving those most in need of opportunities a great launchpad to succeed.

A day in the life:

A day in the life of a coach can vary from day to day, but examples of a day in the life could look something:

9am - Arrive and prep for your first session. Perhaps grab a coffee with one of your apprentices who needs some professional coaching.

9.30am - Your first accounting cohort arrives. They are learning a challenging new accounting concept today and you need to bring real-world examples to to the table to help them get to grips quickly with the content. You'll be delivering a stimulating applied learning session, developing SMART targets with the apprentices and exchanging rich, constructive feedback.

12pm - Find a place to pop down and knock out some admin! This might be catching up with other apprentices, line managers or your colleagues. Likewise, it gives you a chance to catch up on your emails or marking, grab lunch and travel to your next session.

1pm - Continue with your accounting training session.

4pm - Catch up on emails and mark some coursework

5pm - Some of your apprentices have an exam tomorrow and you want to call and wish them good luck!

* Some days vary in that you may spend the morning or afternoon in the WhiteHat HQ (in the Marylebone WeWork!), observing other coaches for best practice tips, holding catch ups with your apprentices, running a Flying Start (induction for new apprentices) or planning for your programme!
