Facilitator (EMEA) - Data & Digital (Freelance)

Job description


OVERVIEW

We are in search of facilitators to deliver our outstanding virtual/in-person education experiences.

Our Data & Digital Leadership Facilitators run short-form workshops in Data Science, Cybersecurity, Innovation, and Programming. You will work with senior leaders from every sector, helping shape their understanding of technology and ability to effectively engage with technical teams.

You can work remotely from anywhere in the GMT + 2 time zones. When we return to in-person training you may have the opportunity to travel around the region and beyond.

When applying please bear in mind the following:

  • We work in an area flooded with tech buzzwords (e.g. AI, machine learning, blockchain) — in your application show us how you would explain a buzz-wordy term to a room full of people that ‘get it’ but might have never ‘done it.’

  • We really enjoy videos, and portfolios of work that show us your skills (make it fun)

  • We deliver training that is technology and innovation focused — see if your application can reflect this
