We are hiring a Joinery Tutor in Dundrod

If you are interested in working part time for People 1st, then please read on as we have a fantastic opportunity to join our Joinery team in Dundrod, at our People 1st Construction Training Academy.

At People 1st we have a large team of ‘associate’ tutors. Being an associate tutor offers more flexibility to those who are looking for part-time work to suit personal and professional circumstances, while still earning an attractive hourly rate. At People 1st we are focused on developing our team and support our associate tutors with the opportunity to progress and engage in Continuous Professional Development.

The most important thing for me that as a People 1st associate, you are still part of a team where you have excellent support and guidance when needed and are included in the company’s wide range of CPD provision and progression opportunities.  I started as an associate tutor and am now IQA and Curriculum lead for CCLD.  You also have flexibility with working, gain the benefits that come with being self-employed and also job satisfaction with teaching and achievements of learners.” Jennifer Boyle, CCLD IQA and Curriculum Lead
