Company Teach Your Monster

We’re Teach Your Monster. We make high quality educational apps for kids. Our flagship product is Teach Your Monster to Read: a multiple BAFTA award-nominated educational app, one of the world’s leading literacy products played by over 2 million children every month. We have recently launched new apps and games for kids aged 4 and upwards, both in reading and number skills and we are also developing games in other areas of learning and development.

Who we’re looking for

We’re on the lookout for a part-time freelance Admin & Operations person to help us support the growing Teach Your Monster team in the areas of admin, data and systems, HR, and finance.

The workload may vary from week to week but is likely to be in the region of 1-2 days per week.

We work really collaboratively, in a small team of about 15-20 people, with several product teams and a very small central Operations department which keeps the core processes operating to support all the teams. This work will be part of Operations.

We’re looking for a someone who:

– will work collaboratively with the Ops team to provide a great service to the whole team

– has great attention to detail, superb organisational skills and can prioritise well.

– enjoys IT/systems administration

– is inquisitive, has a good knowledge of standard office software packages and who enjoys working with them (especially useful would be experience with Google Workspace and Xero, but it’s not essential)

– can demonstrate discretion and confidentiality

– is able to work independently and can be flexible in working days/hours

You will have ownership of several key areas including working with our Data Protection Officer to efficiently manage the Data Protection Agreements we have with many schools; ensuring our data protection records are accurately maintained; creating and managing user accounts and permissions for the various software packages used by the team; providing administrative support to the team and providing additional support in the Ops team with finance, contracts and HR administration when required.

Apply because you want to:

– Make a difference to children’s lives – we are run like a games studio or a startup, but our focus is on impact not profit

– Work flexibly – many of us are remote and part-time and we are family-friendly, allowing work days to be structured around family commitments

– Work with a diverse team on a challenge that will positively impact children and families all over the world.

– Surround yourself with smart, curious, and action-oriented people with opportunities to learn every single day.

– Be part of our culture of openness, candid communications, a learning mindset and respect for each other

– Take on responsibility, try new things and grow your skills in a purpose-driven environment

– Be autonomous, we want you to work in the way that you feel will bring the best results

Please note this role will be mainly remote, working in UK time-zone, with the possiility to work face to face with our team in London occasionally if required. The start date for this role is the 1st April 2022.
