What it’s like to work with us

The Hotcourses Group is a great company to work for, with over 300 of us across four different time zones. We are a diverse bunch, from all walks of life, with expertise in a wide range of areas. Anyone with the right skills and the desire to inspire people to learn for a better future is welcome in our team.

We are a team who works hard but has fun while we do it. We are passionate about all things education; whether that’s a team day spent creating graffiti art, training our managers up to become great leaders, or listening to Deputy Digital Marketing Manager, Joyce, practise the ukulele.

We have offices in Chennai, Boston and Sydney, and our head office is in Putney, London.

What we can offer you

Accredited management training

We are ILM Centre Approved and an ILM Provider. ILM stands for Institute of Leadership and Management and they are the leading provider of coaching, leadership and management training in the UK. This means that any training of this kind that you get through us will see you awarded with a recognised qualification.

Learning and development

When you first start working with the Hotcourses Group, you’ll receive a thorough induction and training relevant to your position. We’ll also go over everything from administration procedures to what to do in the event of a fire drill. As your employment progresses, your skillset may be extended through either external or internal training. A good example of this is our ILM accredited management training.

Course Allowance

In addition to any courses you need in order to do your job, we will put £200 towards a course or courses of your choice every year. The possibilities for what you could do are endless. We’ve had people learn to paint, study languages, take yoga classes and even learn to perform magic!

Travel loans

We offer all of our employees interest free loans for the purchase of annual travel cards within London. The loan is deducted from your salary over a year, thus spreading the cost.

Bicycle and Nursery Voucher Purchase Scheme

The Hotcourses Group subscribes to the government tax relief schemes for the purchase of bicycles and nursery vouchers. Both schemes allow money to be deducted through payroll before tax and national insurance. This actually means you could get a bike with 40% off the price!

Complimentary gym membership

Our London office has an on-site gym which is free to join.

Holidays

You will have 20 holiday days a year in addition to the 8 statutory bank holidays. In addition, we close for the week over Christmas for which you don’t have to use any of your holiday entitlement (normally 3+ days). For every year of employment with us you’ll get an extra day of holiday up to 25 days.

Recognition

We run an ongoing competition through the year with mixed teams from across the business with different challenges to complete. We also have lots of celebrations throughout the year, such as employee of the month and an annual awards ceremony.
