Job Opportunities: Ultra Education Facilitators (part-time)

“We are looking for experienced facilitators to deliver our entrepreneurship programmes in the London Borough of Brent and surrounding areas. We service a wide range of clients including schools, youth organizations, local authorities, corporates, and parents.
