Business Development Manager – Innovate My School
Innovate My School connects innovative teachers with innovative suppliers through unique speed dating events – a concept they have pioneered in the education sector over 7 years. With 160 events to date, and spreading fast throughout the UK and the Middle East, we are expanding the business development team to maximise our growth and impact in education.
We are looking for an experienced education sales professional to join our team of 360 business development managers, nurturing established accounts and introducing new customers to their innovative routes to market.
The role is diverse, supporting busy school leaders in finding the best innovations on the market, and helping best of breed education suppliers meet their ideal customers. You are the ultimate match-maker.
Based at their offices in Chester, your diary will be split between visiting regional school groups to explain the benefits of speed dating, and then strategically filling your speed dates with the right products and services.
With a consultancy-led approach, you must be able to juggle multiple projects, converse at the highest level with key stakeholders, and manage your own busy diary with ruthless efficiency.
Passionate about education and empathetic with key issues affecting schools, you will be a person wanting to make a big difference within this young and dynamic company.
Full in-house training will be given by the company Directors to ensure you excel in your role and are fully immersed in the world of education innovation.
With a growth mindset, you will be expected to give and receive feedback at all times. New ideas, big or small, are always welcomed.
We have an ambitious growth plan in place, with plenty of opportunities for career progression within the UK and international markets.
Applications will only be considered when accompanied by a covering letter outlining your interest in the role, and why you would like to work at Innovate My School.
