The Coaching Institute Careers | The Coaching Institute

At TCI we believe that passionate people are the key to success. And that work should be fun, educational and something you truly believe in. It needs to have you jumping out of bed in the morning, excited about what you’re going to create.

It’s not about 9-to-5, or ‘getting the job done’, but about getting paid to play, innovate, create, learn and contribute to a mission that matters. Over the years we have won many business excellence awards and accolades for creating one of the most unique and desirable culture in the world.

Welcome to The Coaching Institute...

What We Do: Inspiring the Extraordinary

Our mission – Inspiring the Extraordinary – happens because of the people who are in our team. The ‘company’ doesn’t do this – our team of extraordinary individuals who have come together is what makes this work so well.

And no matter what your role - whether you’re in the Dream Factory, Team Midas, The Wow Team, The Ninjas, Mission Control or The Marvels – you’ll play a vital role in transforming lives across the world.

What’s It Like to Work at The Coaching Institute?

We’re not ‘corporate’ or ‘beige’. We prefer that we get to be ourselves, and that we strive unapologetically for excellence. We love to achieve results, and have fun whilst we’re doing it.

Collaboration, innovation and determination – three attributes that seem to infuse our culture. We’d rather make a mistake, learn from it, move on and grow, so there’s no hierarchy on feedback and everyone’s ideas matter.

“If you’ve worked in a culture where progress is encouraged, measured and pursued, you’ll know how energising it is to be in this team.”

Sharon Pearson

Founder of The Coaching Institute

8 Reasons to Build Your Career at TCI



We believe that the culture of a company is the most important aspect of any business. Our unique culture is one of the things that make TCI what it is. We have won awards for excellence because of our focus on our culture. We care deeply about our vision – live your dream – and our values are core to how we attract the very best people to join us. We have Secret Wows, surprise gifts for team members and Weekly Wow meetings where we celebrate who’s been rocking.

We have fun, learn, grow and contribute to where we’re heading with people we want to be with. The company culture fuels our desire to achieve our mission, which is inspiring the extraordinary.


the ultimate place to be to Experience Personal and Professional Growth

We’re an educational company and we live and breathe learning. We provide access to a library of training resources and materials. We have regular in-house trainings for our team and because we run classes worldwide most days. There is always something to learn...

We have an expectation that the people who want to be with us are those who want to be the best version of themselves that they can be. You can become a Five Star Mentor with us for fellow team members, through our four year leadership development program.


Have fun and Bring Your Quirk

We’re definitely focused on having the business infrastructure and systems in place to succeed, and really care about doing things well. But we believe that business should also be fun, and people should look forward to going to work each day.

We create a work environment that’s all about you being you. We recently had a Women Appreciation Day. We celebrated Halloween with cobwebs and fake spiders and a party. We even get our students and members joining in when they come to our campus to train, with boas, hats and costumes.


The Freedom to Bring All of You

We appreciate that brilliant people want the freedom to bring their best game. They don’t want to be limited by the current ‘reality’. Our culture and work style is designed to ensure that A Players are unleashed!

We’re a small team – 25 people in one campus in Melbourne, Australia – and each of us know that we’re free to be ourselves, and to discover the best version of us that we are capable of.

‘Settling’ is not an option.

“We work full on and we play full on, including dancing, singing (yes, really badly) and costume days. We’ve even had a llama visit us. It made sense at the time...”

Elysium Nguyen

Dream Factory Team Leader


Phenomenal Team mates

Our culture and leadership development programs attract talented applicants from around the world. If you’re accepted, you’ll be working with some of the best minds in the business and we appreciate that’s what you want.

We don’t only recruit talent. We recruit people who are a match to our culture and how we ‘ride’. We are quirky, we do demand excellence, and no one just ‘goes through the motions’. We expect each other to be passionate, focused, fun, positive and determined to live a life of purpose.

Work in One of the Coolest Offices in Australasia

TCI is not an ‘ordinary’ office environment. Yes, there is a plane on the ceiling and neon lights up the walls. There is graffiti and there are superheroes painted around the building. Yes, our manifesto really DOES sit twenty feet tall in our foyer...

We have designed an office space that we believe inspire people to be innovative, and to feel really valued as members of our team.



We began this journey to make a difference. We have the Moon Bear Café, where all profits go towards The Coaching Institute Foundation. We give to some major causes through this foundation and love that we’re able to make this contribution.

Charity days

In 2015 the Coaching Institute Launched a new initiative to give back and really offer support to our communities.

Every single Team Member at The Coaching Institute is more fortunate than most. We have rooves over our heads and food in our belly. We have people around us who love us and care. We have opportunity and room for financial and personal growth.

The Coaching Institute is now supporting it’s team members to take one day per quarter (that’s four days per year!) to support a cause of their choice and do something incredible. It’s a paid day, like any other day in the office and it’s our gift to some of the most deserving charities and foundations.

Every year Team Members are gifted one additional day per quarter. Imagine spending time almost every month working with a cause you are truly passionate about while still being supported my your job.
