    Summary -A fantastic opportunity has arisen for the right individual to gain invaluable experience working for a leading Education Company with an excellent reputation. Learn by Design (LBD) are actively recruiting a full time Education Communicator to begin as soon as possible (note we may have several positions available). The role primarily involves delivering bespoke/corporate workshops to school pupils, of a variety of ages (mainly KS3 pupils), at schools across the country. Our unique approach to inspiring learners makes use of exciting equipment, technology and various props to ensure a quality learning experience for young people, ensuring LBD is a highly respected and innovative education facilitator.

    Typical Day of an Education Communicator -As this isn’t a typical office job, or a typical job at all, every day you work for LBD is going to be different, exciting and challenging. We work in schools across the Country. On a typical day, you can expect to meet at our central vehicle depot, (based just outside Loughborough, Leicestershire), at an agreed time to meet the team leader for the day. The team travel together to the school in order to set up before the school day begins. Our day then follows the school’s timetable. Once the workshops have been delivered the team returns to the vehicle depot together, or travels on to the next location. This is a fantastic opportunity to travel the country and explore areas you may not have seen before!

    During quieter periods of delivery, such as school holidays, you will be expected to work out of our central office in Tamworth, where you will support the LBD team in creating new workshop content, maintaining equipment and helping with all other work tasks as identified by your line manager.

    What do we Deliver? -LBD delivers a selection of quality workshops varying from corporate sponsored days to our own bespoke workshops, to a wide range of age groups. We aim to use specialist and engaging equipment to separate ourselves from our competitors and encourage a memorable learning environment. Key topics within our workshops include STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), Enterprise, Careers and Employability Skills, Performing Arts and key/core skills, such as Resilience, Goal Setting and Communication skills.

    Experience and Requirements -We are looking for confident and flexible individuals to complement our lively team. Experience working in a classroom environment or working with young people preferable, but not essential as full training will be provided for the right individual. Knowledge of STEM, Employability, Enterprise and resilience subjects is preferred, but not essential. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are a must, along with a full UK driving licence and good teamwork skills. We will also require an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check to be carried out.

    Hours of Work -Given the nature of the service that we provide, the hours you work will vary from day to day. Early morning starts and regular overnight stays should be expected.

    Pay and Remuneration

    You will be starting on a salary of £20,250, paid monthly in arrears, with a 12-month probationary period. You will receive a holiday entitlement of 25 days per annum, if full year worked and all statutory bank holidays. (Please note holiday must be taken at a time of year which suits business needs, although we will always work with employees to ensure they can take leave on their desired dates).
