Consultants

Professional. Qualified. Experienced.

Why Amano?

 

As an experienced DSA-QAG registered provider for many years, we have a knowledgeable in-house team and an ever growing network of consultants across the South West.

We consistently receive excellent feedback from our students, with our support consultants receiving genuine appreciation and recognition for helping students achieve their academic ambitions.

We offer a supportive workplace culture and a commitment to our consultants. Every week, our Support Manager is available at campuses across the region to meet with you to discuss any aspect of provision.

We also hold regular face to face meetings, CPD accredited training sessions and pride ourselves on communicating regularly with our consultants and acting on feedback.

” It is a pleasure to work with you. Thanks for your professionalism and CPD” – KA, Specialist Mentor

 

 

We also offer you the opportunity to work flexibly, so should you have to work outside of conventional hours – that’s fine by us. In addition, unlike many providers, we support working in the student’s home if their needs are recommended to be best met that way.

Working with Amano gives you access to the best technology innovations in the sector: the Amano App, e-time-sheets, and e-invoices – all reducing administration for our students and you, leaving more time for support.

“I have to say the Amano mobile app works really well! I’s such an easy way to keep on top of booking. I am loving your new technology” – HR, Specialist Mentor

And not forgetting that we also offer competitive pay and ongoing role specific training.
