Reporting to: Makers Leaders Coach
Everyone deserves a job they love. At Makers, we retrain people as software developers and kickstart their careers by placing them in tech teams across the UK.
You deserve a job you love, and we’ve got one for you.
Makers’ purpose is to transform lives and organisations by bridging tech industry needs and under-discovered talent. We do this through training software engineers and placing them in organisations. Now, we’re expanding our focus to another big issue for UK tech businesses: a shortage of mission-ready technical leaders.
Organisations choose us because we focus harder than anyone else on training the skills that help people succeed in their jobs — whatever those skills might be.
As Makers Leaders Coach, your role is to support emerging technical leaders on their path towards a sustainable and enjoyable leadership career. You will work with established leaders to develop an innovative and impactful curriculum and deliver it to diverse groups of emerging leaders.
Case Method Teaching
The core of our approach to leadership training is the case method. The case method is a form of participatory learning often used on MBA programmes as a way of putting learners in the shoes of seasoned leaders. You will run case discussions together with reading groups, seminars and practical workshops to deliver the Makers Leaders curriculum.
You will build relationships with partners — understanding what their leadership challenges are and explaining how we can support their people to become exceptional software engineering leaders. As a technical leadership expert at Makers, you will speak with partners regularly to build interest, support the sales process and help them understand how their learners are progressing.
Curriculum Development and Innovation
We’re on the cutting edge of technical education and are always searching for new opportunities to help people learn. At Makers you can expect to gain the skills not just to teach but to design highly effective educational experiences — and potentially advance the field of technical leadership education as a whole. As an Engineering Leadership Coach you will spend time interviewing experienced leaders, writing cases and continuously evolving our leadership curriculum.
An Engineering Leadership Coach will play each of these roles:
As well as delivering the Makers Leaders curriculum, you’ll also help learners reflect on their learning, their goals, the problems they are facing and the solutions they may try.
You’ll use your technical knowledge to deliver expert practicals and workshops, provide legitimacy to your teaching, and help guide learners towards solving their leadership challenges.
You will help pioneer our leadership training philosophy — working with Makers’ partners to customise programmes that meet the needs of their organisation and ensuring we deliver value over time.
Our training takes place both remote and onsite. From time to time we may ask you to work from our office in London or remotely as fits the needs of our partners and learners.
