Work with us

At Education Development Trust, we are keen to hear from talented individuals with a broad range of skills to help us achieve our vision and deliver excellent educational outcomes.

With a wide range of impactful and innovative projects, cutting-edge research and our own family of schools, we consider ourselves to be an exciting and rewarding organisation to work for and with. We are passionate about the power of education and its ability to transform lives and we want to make a positive difference in the world, but we can only do so because of the exceptional quality, skills and dedication of our people.

We offer a diverse range of career opportunities – from programme delivery and management around the world to core support roles in areas such as finance, HR and marketing. We recruit English language teachers to work in Brunei, careers advisers in the UK, school inspectors in the Middle East, and expert consultants and researchers around the world. In all these capacities, we seek to provide a stimulating and rewarding environment for our teams, helping them to reach their potential and deliver meaningful, impactful work.

Everything we do is underpinned by our values of excellence, integrity, accountability, collaboration and inclusion – both in our overarching strategies and in our day-to-day work. For this reason, we are committed to our robust safeguarding and whistleblowing practices that ensure the safety and wellbeing of all those we work with. We are also proud to be an accredited Living Wage Employer.

Why Work with Us?

We understand and value the importance of inclusion and diversity across our organisation and all the work we do, globally. We have a dedicated Inclusion & Diversity Task Force, representative at all levels of the organisation, which has been working on solutions as to how we make our staff and leadership more representative of the communities we serve. We are also a member of Inclusive Employers, the leading membership organisation for employers who are committed to prioritising inclusion and creating truly inclusive workplaces. We welcome applications and enquiries from individuals from all backgrounds and walks of life. As a Disability Confident Committed employer, we are also committed to addressing barriers facing people with disabilities and who are neurodivergent and providing reasonable adjustments to accommodate individuals’ needs.

Join us as an apprentice

Apprenticeships are excellent means of gaining new skills and qualifications alongside a full-time paid job. Education Development Trust recognises the potential of apprenticeships at every career stage – for people just starting out, those looking to build new skills, and for established professionals wanting a career change.

We offer apprenticeships at all levels and in areas ranging from Project Management, Digital Marketing and Business Administration to Early Years Education, Data Analysis and Leadership Improvement.

Elvira Cumbrera, who has worked in our Business Development team since October 2017, explains how her apprenticeship is supporting her career progression:

‘I recently started a Level 4 Data Analysis apprenticeship with Multiverse that I will be doing for up to 24 months. The experience so far has been fantastic. I have the support of a 1-2-1 coach, very structured lessons, and the support of my line manager. The apprenticeship is done within working hours, and you are able to put your new skills in practice through your work almost from month one. I am really excited about all the data skills I will be learning, and how these will help my career progression to a full time Business Analyst role. I recommend anyone that wants either a slight career change or to develop skills going for an apprenticeship.’
