Working as a mentor at Oppidan has been inexplicably amazing…it’s the perfect job for those looking for flexibility and working with children supports core values and principles that are applicable in pursuing other career paths.

Applying to be a Mentor with Oppidan Education

At Oppidan we pride ourselves on the quality control and support system we put in place for our mentors. We look for enthusiastic, engaged and friendly mentors; communication is key for us and we greatly value personality and of course look favourably upon mentors with an interest in education.

Whilst we look to expand our team, please be aware that we turn down more applications that we accept. We do not take on mentors for the short-term and ask that, alongside your other interests and ambitions, you have a clear commitment to working for Oppidan for the foreseeable future.

The Process:


Phone interview

You will have an initial phone interview with a member of the Oppidan team.


Face-to-face interviews

Successful candidates will then undergo two subsequent face-to-face interviews at our offices in Holland Park.


Enhanced DBS check

This is necessary to have in order to work for Oppidan. Please make us aware of any up-to-date DBS checks you have, otherwise we can organise this for you before you start. 



All mentors working for Oppidan undergo online safeguard training.

Due to higher demand, we are not taking any applications forward until the 21st October 2019.
