This company connects innovative teachers with innovative suppliers through unique speed dating events - a concept they have pioneered in the education sector over 7 years. With 165 events to date, and spreading fast throughout the UK and the Middle East, they are expanding the business development team to maximise their growth and impact in education.

They are looking for an experienced education sales professional to join their 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 into 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.

The company has an ambitious growth plan in place, with plenty of opportunities for career progression within the UK and international markets.
