Interns- Customer Support 


The Company

Show My Homework is the fastest growing company in the education technology sector. Recognised by BETT (the world’s leading learning technology showcase) for ‘Innovation in ICT’, and a recent award winner at the “Techies”, our product is unrivalled in the marketplace and as a result we are looking for some smart people to help us through our busiest time of year. This is an amazing opportunity to experience a business that is in the relatively early stages of growth, yet has already built a dazzling reputation in the industry.

Many of our staff started their careers at Show My Homework as graduates or in entry level roles.  We look for bright, enthusiastic people who care about education. We look for people who embody our values: Warmth, Integrity, Be the Best, and Pioneering.  Our values inform the type of people we recruit, as well as how we treat our staff and our customers.  

The Customer Support Internship

September is back to school time, and it’s no different at Show My Homework.  This is our busiest period as we have new schools using our service for the first time, and existing schools returning to us with a new set of teachers, students and parents.  Therefore we are setting up a team of support agents to help handle the additional volume of calls and emails from our customers.  

This is an opportunity to learn how the business works from the front line.  You’ll be fully trained on our internal systems and products, and will become familiar with standard industry tools such as Salesforce and New Voice Media.

The internships will vary in length from 4 – 8 weeks, depending on the volume of support requests we receive.  Following your internship you will have the opportunity to apply for any available roles in the company, while already having built your reputation here and an understanding of what the different roles entail.  The teams that are most likely to be recruiting are the Sales team, The Account Management Team and Customer Support.

We cannot promise that there will be roles available, but once you have proven yourself here and impressed us, you’ll be one of the first people we contact when we have a vacancy.
