Be prepared to work hard and become a business manager; this is not just a job in education it is in education management. Explore looks for personable people but you've got to show you're switched on too. Demonstrating initiative is key and you will need this by the bucket load if you get the role. It is a brilliant, hugely varied job different to any 9-5pm 'grad scheme' you will find; you'll work weekends and 11-8pm but it will be absolutley worth it if you have the passion for it!

Application Advice:

Be prepared to be kept on your toes! If you love a challenge and unpredictability then this is the job for you! If you are conscientious and ambitious then be prepared to accept that you will not have the time to perform every responsibility/task to your high standards as the workload doesn't always allow for this. Also make sure you are passionate and dedicated enough to the Explore Learning cause and vision to endure the odd hours.

Interview Advice:

Do your research! Be passionate, ambitious and confident! Let your personality shine - they really do want to see the real you!

Application Advice:

Please ensure that you are passionate about the role. It is a difficult job, if you believe it what you do you will love it! If you show this genuine passion and enthusiasm throughout the entire recruit process it will go a long way. Please get as much experience working with children as you possibly can, preferably in an educational setting, as this will prove invaluable. If you do this it will develop your confidence and gain respect from parents and teachers. If you have the opportunity to gain experience in: sales, marketing, recruitment or management too this will help considerably.

Interview Advice:

The whole interview process is very thorough. As long as you can draw on past experiences, recognise any transferable skills and show a genuine passion for the role you should be fine ! The company loves people who are friendly, enthusiastic, likeable and professional. Remember to sell yourself !

Application Advice:

Go in with a long-term perspective, many people leave because of the hours/days worked but if you get your head down and work hard this changes once you become a centre director and the hours become second nature after a few months.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself, in the assessment days if they like 10 people they will hire 10 people, trying to stand out by being competitive and not having an awareness of others will actually go against you.

Application Advice:

I would say if you are thinking about teaching but maybe don't feel quite ready and you are considering this role- go for it! It is a great experience and allows you to develop other skills and make a more informed choice about whether teaching is right for you. The amount of trainings' you go on also means that you get a real feel for what business areas you enjoy. An amazing first job but you have to be a very motivated and a resilient person, as it can get to you when you have to go off to work maybe on a Saturday or Sunday when all your friends will be out and about.

Interview Advice:

I would say really think about your marketing presentation and research realistic figures as I fell down on this part by being a bit over optimistic on how many trials we would book for my event. In the group activities demonstrate your team work skills but also the ability to be assertive when needed. At lunch they are still observing so don't get too comfortable. One of the people at my assessment day said 'I think you should open a centre near Watford there are loads of 'posh' schools there', this shows a complete lack of understanding of Explore as our most popular centres are actually in quite deprived areas with large ethnic diversity.

Application Advice:

The company really look towards 'people friendly' individuals. A lot of natural confidence! However, it is a heavily sales aspect, monthly targets are in place for sign ups, new members etc. however having said that - there is no immediate pressure or fear of your job depending on it. Pretty soon you find yourself comfortable with it all as a result from working in a close knit team within your centre.

Interview Advice:

Individuality and confidence, lots of it!

Application Advice:

Draw on a range of experiences and skills. Don't focus on one aspect of the role because they are looking for people with the whole package. If you don't have sales experience, think about any situation where you've had to persuade somebody of the benefits of a particular decision. They coach and train you in all the roles so they're looking for awareness of what each aspect of the job will require. Do a lot of research, go and see a centre before applying.

Interview Advice:

Be specific. Give them tangible examples of your experiences in different areas. Be confident and show them your personality. This is such a huge part of the job so don't underestimate it. They want bright, friendly, articulate people so keep your nerves to a minimum and throw yourself in to the tutoring observation. You dont have to teach the kids in the observation section of the interview; talk to them about their day and be generally (and genuinely) friendly.

I would say to be sure that you can commit to the working hours and be prepared to work hard. This job is incredible and any experience with children will serve you well, you must be full of energy and looking forward to a challenge. You should be willing to approach new families and children with whom you have never worked and be happy to know that this job is very much about building bonds with new people. Try not to feel intimidated by an aspect of the job outline in which you have little experience because Explore Learning provide brilliant ongoing training in all areas.

Interview Advice:

Be prepared to take on feedback and use it at every interview stage. The company's success is down to some fantastic teams in Head Office and their advice will be invaluable to you so listen carefully and let your passion shine through!
