Job description

Who we are looking for

We are searching for candidates who have a track record of strong teaching, and who hold research informed knowledge about how pupils, teachers and school leaders best learn. The Design Manager role will work closely with colleagues in the team to design and build a suite of world-class programmes that help teachers and school leaders to keep getting better.

Based in one of our London, Birmingham or Manchester offices, we are currently recruiting for two permanent roles to start from Easter 2021. This position will, with support, be responsible for digesting large amounts of research, and combining this with field experience to author and represent curricula in ways that generate rigorous and actionable experiences.

You will have a track record of strong teaching and/or school leadership, including pupils with low prior attainment in challenging contexts. You will be able to analyse teaching skills and moments, breaking them down into their smallest constituent parts, and recombining them to build high levels of competence. Combined with there, the ideal candidates will also have excellent communication skills, with the ability to interact skilfully, intelligently and sensitively with teachers and leaders in a range of situations.


Who are Ambition Institute?

Ambition Institute has one purpose: to help educators serving children from disadvantaged backgrounds to keep getting better. With our new organisation, and more than ten years of collective experience in working with educators at all levels, we believe that exciting opportunities lie ahead. We are a graduate school for educators, and we apply academic rigour to our learning design, drawing on frontline insights from schools into what works in practice. Our programmes leverage the latest evidence from international experts, which means we think carefully about what is taught, how, and in what sequence. We work collaboratively to enable school improvement for the benefit of pupils, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
