Are you passionate about learning and motivated by helping people achieve their full potential? If so, then this role in learning & development as a Trainee Coach may be for you.


Discovery is a leading provider of professional services and consultancy. We help organisations build effective, high performing workforces. We are unique in the breadth of service areas that we offer. Whilst other companies offer ‘parts’, no single company to our knowledge has the capability or the proprietary tools to deliver what Discovery does across a workforce, and the success of an organisation.

A large part of our business is training and developing individuals to help them become as successful in their roles as they can be. The purpose of a training programme is not only to improve skills and knowledge, it is fundamentally about changing behaviour. We have a particular expertise in behavioural change around proprietary methodology built on neuroscience and language. As such our programmes are often cited as ‘stand out’ behavioural change programmes, utilised across organisations from C-suite to early careers.

Everything we do is geared towards achieving the most effective and productive workforces for our clients. We achieve this through impactful recruitment together with expert training and diagnostic services, ensuring that the right people, with the right skills and behaviours, are in the right jobs, for maximum commercial success.

We offer apprenticeship training across Leadership & Management, Professional Selling and Customer Service. Every person undertaking one of our programmes benefits from a coach to support their learning journey.

As a Trainee Coach we will support you through training and qualifications to become a critical cog in a learner’s success. You will support our learners through their apprenticeship programmes, helping them to achieve their qualifications in a timely manner, whilst also contributing to the success of our department through impactful input into planning and the supporting administration.
