Operations Associate

  • Anywhere

On behalf of our partner client, an esteemed E-Learning business that is experiencing sustained growth, Equal Education Partners are seeking a dedicated and enthusiastic Operations Associate to join and bolster a dynamic team on a temporary basis. This position is crucial for expanding capacity during our client’s busiest period to deliver outstanding support to their partners (customers) and ensure the seamless delivery of their live online lessons. In this role, you will find yourself at the heart of the operations function, directly impacting the experience of partners and students.

The principal purpose of this role is to act as a point of contact for partners, adeptly handling queries and solving problems to maintain high satisfaction levels. Collaboration across departments will be a part of your daily routine, aimed at enhancing service delivery and operational efficiency. Your contributions will extend beyond immediate tasks, providing valuable insights through regular performance reports, aiding in decision-making and improvement initiatives. Full training in systems (namely a bespoke platform, Dynamics 365, Teams) will of course be provided, and expectations will be clearly set.

We are looking for someone who shares a commitment to education, equipped with exemplary organisational and communication skills, and has a track record of thriving in fast-paced environments. Whilst this opportunity is temporary, for a person who demonstrates their value and aligns with our goals, there could be potential for this position to evolve into a permanent role, opening up further avenues for professional growth and development.

You may not have professional operations experience, but if you have the detail-oriented and customer-centric skills we’re looking for, then we’d love to hear from you! This role offers you the chance to make a significant contribution to our client’s operations, ensuring smooth, efficient, and effective delivery of their important service.
