About Wise Owl Training
We are a small computer training and consultancy company with our admin offices based in Glossop. We celebrated 20 years in business a few years ago and take great pride in not only the quality of our courses, but our reliability and integrity too.
We run scheduled courses in Microsoft software at our UK locations (Manchester and London, and less frequently Birmingham, Leeds, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Bristol). To maintain our high standards, we keep our class sizes small - up to 6 people on scheduled courses and a maximum of 8 for tailored company courses.
We offer flexible working on days when you are not training. We can also be flexible with extended leave requests (best requested in our quiet periods) and we have a relaxed dress code at our admin offices.
We may consider applications for part-time hours, but you must be available for mid-week travel.
We are looking for a reliable, patient, hard-working graduate who is keen to learn and has the ability to stand up in front of a group of people with confidence and can explain things clearly and concisely. The position would ideally suit NQT teachers/new TEFL teachers already fed up of government red tape and unruly pupils, but who still want the reward of seeing someone grow through the knowledge you have helped them achieve. Alternatively, if you've some background in drama or other experience of presenting, this could be for you.
You will need to be patient and have good social skills. We can teach you better training/presentation skills and help you gain the necessary software knowledge; but we can't teach you to have a logical mind and the skill of being able to explain clearly and concisely, so some experience of training/teaching/presenting to small groups is essential.
A good knowledge of Microsoft software (in particular SQL Server, Excel and VBA) would be preferred, but is not essential, merely the ability to gain this knowledge quickly with our help.
If you can prove you have the necessary technical and presentation skills, we do not expect you to have graduated in sciences (although excellent GCSE passes in Maths and Science subjects are essential).
A full, clean driving licence is essential, along with the willingness to be flexible in your work hours to meet the demands of the position.
This post is based in Glossop/Manchester and involves travelling to our training centre in London, as well as to deliver onsite courses around the UK. You therefore need to be able to accept a lifestyle that could take you away from home several days a week (although we try to share out the travelling and trainers can book ahead non-travelling days for important dates like concerts, birthdays etc). You will not be travelling every week, and you will usually (but not always) be away when travelling for two days at a time.
Please contact us in the first instance here! We look forward to hearing from you (unless you're an agency, in which case we don't).
