How cool would it be to join an organization devoted to lifelong upskilling and learning, and to play a substantial role in students’ success and career placement?

We are looking for a Student & Career Success Coach with understanding of the recruitment and selection process, to turn their knowledge into useful career guidance for our Alpha program students and graduates.

In this role, you will team up with experienced professionals in our Training and Talent team, working together to help students transition successfully into their first IT role.

If you are interested in the IT field, and are curious to see first-hand how education can be made practical and effective, and how it transforms people’s lives, read more about our new role below.

What you will be doing:

  • Act as a trusted adviser to our students in the final part of their 6-month training, preparing them for a successful job hunt during our Career Jumpstart module
  • Lead career-related workshops focused on CV writing, interview preparation, and sharing best practices and strategies for the job searching process
  • Provide students with personal feedback on their CVs and host mock interviews for them
  • Perform group and 1:1 career coaching and preparation for students and recent alumni and hosting regular office hours
  • Facilitate key soft skills sessions
  • Support student groups and individuals in their learning progress in the Alpha program
  • Work and teach in an online environment and support students this way

How this role can contribute to your development:

  • Get a wholistic idea about learning program setup and implementation according to teaching best practices recognized worldwide
  • Have the opportunity to apply your mentoring and coaching skills right away and strengthen them further
  • Learn how to facilitate groups, including in an online format, and lead training sessions
  • Enjoy a thoughtful benefits program that includes:
    • 25 days paid leave a year and an additional day off for your birthday
    • Flexible working hours, work-from-home policy, and an entirely remote work during the pandemic
    • Access to Employee Wellbeing program focused on mental health and various supportive activities
    • Medical coverage through the United Health Insurance Fund Doverie
    • Ongoing investment in your development through a rich selection of trainings, books and learning materials (incl. access to reputable outlets, a shared library, access to Pluralsight, Udemy, etc.)
    • And more to discover

What will make you successful in this role:

  • 1+ years of experience working within Recruitment, Learning & Development, HR services or career counseling/coaching
  • Being empathic and patient with students, and eager to support them in navigating their training and making their next career jump
  • A team-player attitude and willingness to share ideas regularly, and to accept and provide feedback
  • Ability to work independently and to manage multiple projects without dropping the ball
  • Excellent English and Bulgarian language skills – spoken and written
  • Experience in leading and facilitating training sessions is a plus, but we’d equally value your willingness to learn how to do it if you don’t have such skillset yet
  • Experience with Career Services in higher education, and knowledge of the IT community and job market trends are a great plus
