Make a Difference to a Child’s Education Whilst Learning Real Business Skills! 

Explore Horizons is a new, ambitious and dynamic company dedicated to making a difference in children’s education. Explore Horizons centers provide math, reading and writing tutoring and enrichment to children aged 5-14, aiming to improve their knowledge, confidence and enjoyment of learning. 

Since starting in 2001 in the UK, Explore Horizons has helped over 150,000 children reach their potential in the classroom, and is now launching its unique brand of tutoring center in the USA starting in the Dallas and Fort Worth area. Joining Explore as an Assistant Director you could be a part of one of our full-time management teams learning how to run one of our tutoring centers and developing your teaching, leadership, management and marketing skills. 

Become an Assistant Director! 

You will gain broad business experience, learning to market and sell a new concept in education; how to operate a business unit, and be responsible for the recruitment and development of a team of tutors as part of the Management team. We also hope you will embrace the opportunity to progress to Center Director within 12-24 months where you will directly supervise staff and have overall responsibility for the Center’s development, operations and profitability. 

The role of Assistant Director is varied, challenging and very rewarding; offering you the chance to gain broad business experience, while working in a fun environment to benefit children. Starting as an Assistant Director you will be in a team of three, either launching a new center or running an established center. The key to the success of each center is down to the three managers: the Center Director and two Assistant Directors. The full time team are graduates, all sharing a passion for education and the desire to help children reach their full potential. 

Fantastic Training and Development! 

We recruit bright University graduates who want to make an impact - both on running our centers as a business, and on the lives of our members who attend. Explore offers you the opportunity to take a hands on approach to management from day one. A high level of responsibility and extensive training will allow you to thrive and rapidly progress your career. You can enjoy real job satisfaction and gain the skills to develop a small business successfully. 

Career Progression! 

Explore offers its employees a diverse and dynamic working environment in which your professional development is central to our success. Our excellent staff training and well structured career development program will ensure that you have every opportunity to fulfill your career ambitions. 

Further opportunities exist within the company beyond the position of Center Director. As the company grows the most competent Center Directors will go on to become Regional Managers, or take up positions in Head Office across various departments, such as Marketing, Recruitment, Training, Retention, Content, Sales, and HR. 

Candidates must be: 
• Enthusiastic and confident to promote Explore Horizons at any opportunity. 
• Professional, articulate and persuasive. 
• Willing and able to take responsibility for the success of a center. 
• Passionate about helping children achieve their potential & able to build a strong rapport. 
• Highly motivated with a bright enthusiastic personality.

What we are looking for? 

Assistant Directors need to be willing to take on the responsibility to drive forward the growth and development of our learning centers using their promotional and managerial strengths. 

All applicants MUST be eligible to work in the USA. 

•A competitive base salary.
