Job Purpose

Preparing future professionals with one-on-one support

You will support learners on our Financial Services Level 6 and Level 7 programmes in their journey to successfully complete their apprenticeship. With your proven experience, you will help nurture these professionals to develop key qualities through personalised coaching. Through regular monitoring of their performance, you will ensure that each student maximizes their potential.

What you’ll be doing

  • Proactively and reactively supporting students requiring additional help
  • Providing one-to-one tailored coaching to learners enabling them to maximise their full potential
  • Managing a cohort of learners by providing excellent support throughout their apprenticeship programme

Office presence may be required periodically for meetings. (London, Birmingham, or Manchester)

Choose a better work-life balance

In addition, you’ll have the flexibility of a home-based role, with the option to work from one of our centres should you wish.  Either way, you’ll benefit from a vibrant workplace and a culture that believes in looking after others, while being part of a diverse workforce where difference is celebrated.  In addition, you’ll work alongside other like-minded professionals who champion progress, while having opportunities to develop in an environment where creativity and innovation is rewarded.  On top of a competitive salary, we provide a generous annual leave entitlement of 25 days, and there’s a rewards package that includes retail discounts, Group Personal Pension Plan, dedicated healthcare, and dental plans that offer additional assurance to look after you and your family.  Brilliantly, you can also study any of BPP’s courses for free – be it a professional qualification or full degree.
