    We are seeking a proactive problem solver who enjoys working with people to find creative solutions, and who can work independently using their own judgment to investigate and resolve any non-standard problems.

    This is a full-time position for a fixed-term period until May 2022.

    The Institute of Coding is a national initiative, led by the University of Bath, which brings together a range of universities, industry groups, employers, training providers, outreach groups, and professional bodies to respond collaboratively to the UK’s digital skills gap. 

    By delivering accessible, industry-focused digital skills courses and events across the UK, the IoC is encouraging more people to pursue digital/tech careers via higher education and has enrolled 900,000 learners to date. With a focus on diversity and inclusion, the IoC is widening participation and ensuring that employers and individuals can access the skills they need to compete in the digital economy. 

    The IoC’s offering of more than 150+ courses includes industry accredited degree schemes, skills intensive bootcamps, and flexible short courses that help people upskill and reskill to boost their employability.

    We are an inclusive, engaged and high-functioning team, with core values that include respectful collaboration, innovation, adaptability and agility. We are looking for someone who will help us to respond to the national digital skills gap, while enjoying the role and making a positive contribution to our internal culture.

    The work that we do is fast-paced and can be challenging, so it is approached through positivity and teamwork. Each member of the team plays a key role and their contribution is recognised and valued. Communication is considered essential – both within the team and with external stakeholders – and we strive to ensure that everything we do is purpose-driven and high quality.
