Current Vacancies

  • Arka Learning is an exciting new startup with a bold vision to transform supplementary education in the UK. Our mission is to deliver outstanding educational programmes that are accessible to parents and bring joy to learning for students. We are building a network of innovative Learning Centres across the UK, initially supporting primary age students with Maths and English.

     

    We are seeking two Assistant Centre Managers to join us in this transformative adventure in education. This is an exciting opportunity to help shape the future of Arka learning with the potential to become a Centre Director or move into a Head Office role as the company grows.

     

    The Role

    This is a varied role that will allow successful candidates to develop their skills and experience in operations, management, sales and education. 

    Key areas of responsibility will vary as we establish new routines and working practices, but will encompass:

    • Assisting the Centre Director with overall management and operations of the centre

    • Tutoring primary aged students in English and Maths

    • Acting as a role model to less experienced tutors and assisting with training where appropriate

    • Marking initial assessments and determining students’ Learning Plans from our curriculum

    • Tracking students’ progress and overseeing the rewards system

    • Onboarding new students and ensuring they have the appropriate materials

    • Monitoring and updating our student records

    • Being the qualified first aider on site (full training will be provided)

    • Being the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (full training will be provided)

    • Scheduling and time tracking for tutors

    • Contributing to sales and marketing to bring in new members

     

    The Assistant Centre Managers will report to the Centre Director who will be available to provide any necessary support and the role will begin with a comprehensive and ongoing training programme. Our mission is to create centres that are joyful places of learning. Central to achieving this will be a commitment to ensuring our staff are supported and love their roles.

     

    Working Hours

    Our centres are open 6 days per week. You will be required to work for 5 of the 6 days including on alternate Saturdays. On weeks that you are required to work on Saturday you will have another weekday off. There is the possibility of more flexible working when individuals progress to more senior roles. Working hours will typically be as follows:

    Monday 11am – 8:00pm

    Tuesday 11am – 8:00pm

    Wednesday 11am – 8:00pm

    Thursday 11am – 8:00pm

    Friday 9am – 6:00pm

    Saturday 9am – 5:00pm

    (These times include a one-hour lunch break each day.)

     

    The Person

    Our goal is to provide after-school childcare environments that children love to come to and where learning is a joy. As such this role would suit someone who is positive, patient and enjoys working with children.

    You will be a strong communicator who is not afraid to have difficult conversations to achieve the very best for a child. You will also have a commitment to self-reflection and taking responsibility for your own actions and the actions of your team.

     

    During the launch period there will inevitably be some degree of uncertainty while we try out new ideas and establish best practices. While we are committed to a supportive work environment, this may make the role more enjoyable for someone who is adaptable and comfortable with change.

     

    Candidates must be over 18 and have achieved at least five GCSEs at grades 4-9 (C-A*) including English and Maths. Some experience of leadership is desirable but not essential as training will be provided.

     

    Contract, Salary and Benefits

    • Full-time, permanent contract

    • Start date: Late June

    • Salary: £27k upwards (dependent on experience)

    • Pension: 3% employers’ contribution

    • Holiday: 28 days (including bank holidays) + your birthday off

    • Cycle to work scheme

    • Enhanced parental leave after 3 years tenure

    • Fully funded Safeguarding and Paediatric First Aid Training

    • Access to fully funded qualifications through the Apprenticeship Scheme

     

    Application Process

    All successful applicants will be required to undertake reference checks and an Enhanced DBS Check. This role is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975.

     

    For successful candidates, an offer of employment is subject to:

    • Receipt of two satisfactory references which testify the candidate’s suitability to work with children

    • Proof of qualifications
