Job Description

We’re on a mission to create a diverse group of future leaders. We do that through professional apprenticeships because we believe learning on-the-job creates a more equitable and successful path to careers. We find, train and support talented individuals, wherever they are in their career journey, and equip them with the in-demand tech, software engineering, and data skills to transform their careers and deliver a better route to growth for their employers.

We’ve had some big achievements. We hit 10,000 apprentices in our community - and counting. We launched one of the largest data apprenticeship programs in the UK with Jaguar Land Rover, and we’ve partnered with companies like Mars, Verizon and CitiBank. Not to forget becoming a mission-driven EdTech unicorn after our $220m Series D.

But we aren’t stopping here. Join Multiverse and build the future of learning at work.

People implementations

  • Introduce a strategic internal communications approach that brings transparency to our business goals and people processes

  • Ensure that every communication touchpoint is informative, inspiring and relevant to improve engagement

  • Review and refresh our existing communication channels - including our All Hands, newsletter, Wiki and Slack - and identify solutions for gaps in our current framework

  • Build a global communications calendar that is used consistently across the organisation

  • Support and advise our SLT Team to ensure that key messages are effectively cascaded to drive performance


  • Provide support to the Senior Learning & Development Manager to evolve our existing programmes, and design new ones that support hitting our EVP - including Manager Fundamentals and DEI training

The right candidate:

  • Need for speed: You’ve held a senior leadership role in a people team for a fast-paced scaleup that’s grown rapidly, ideally with presence in both the US and UK.

  • Subject matter expertise: You have demonstrable experience of leading a people experience strategy, especially against wellbeing, employer brand and employee engagement.

  • Passion: You believe in the power of people teams to build thriving companies and cultures. You stop at nothing to make sure that this is felt in every team in the business.

  • Right-hand person: You know how to build relationships with managers of all levels - you’re empathetic, compassionate, effective and commercially minded.

  • Thought leader: We’re not looking for your traditional people leader - we’re looking for someone who sees people operations as a product and who innovates constantly to improve the employee experience.

  • Inspirational: You are an inspiring people leader, a great manager and someone that people inherently trust and who earns that trust.

  • The job is never done: You pride yourself on your attention to detail and you understand that you can only expect excellence if you demonstrate it yourself as a leader.


  • Time off - 27 days holiday, plus 7 additional days off: 1 life event day, 2 volunteer days and 4 company-wide wellbeing days

  • Health & Wellness- private medical Insurance with Bupa, a medical cashback scheme, life insurance, gym membership & wellness resources through Gympass and access to Spill - all in one mental health support
