The Company

A multi award-winning Apprenticeships training provider, with a proven track record of maximising returns on investment for both levy-paying and non-levy-paying employers across a range of sectors including IT, Education, Manufacturing and the NHS. Offering diverse, often bespoke but always high-quality programmes across the UK, this provider is highly valued by its clients, learners and staff alike. With a staff turnover that is well below average for the industry, this could be an opportunity to secure your future in this ever-changing sector.

Background of the Position

When it comes to promoting its services to employers, most training providers adopt fairly traditional staffing models with sharp-suited, tenacious sales people generating leads and striving to close deals. Clearly this can be very effective, but what happens when a client simply cannot see how the programme can be implemented in their business? Or when their technical, industry knowledge is far greater than that of the sales person? How many potential learner starts are lost in this kind of scenario?

Our client does things differently. Sure, they have sales people and they are actually very good. But they also employ a team of product specialists who influence the sales process by connecting with the prospective client on a far more technical level.

As the product specialist for IT and Digital apprenticeships, you will be in a client-facing role, providing tangible examples of how the apprenticeship programme will be implemented. You will not be involved in any cold-calling activity. You will simply be asked to follow up on warm leads, attend meetings and contribute to the sales process by demonstrating a detailed knowledge of the programmes.

We are not looking for a classic sales person who is an expert in getting a foot in the door but lacks the detailed product knowledge to convert these leads into genuine sales. We are keen to hear from people who know IT and Digital Apprenticeship inside and out.

What background do you need to apply?

We are only really interested in two key areas and you MUST tick these boxes to apply:

- Exceptionally sound, practical experience and knowledge of IT & Digital Apprenticeships - such as ( Infrastructure Technician (Level 3), Network Engineer (Level 4), Digital Marketer (Level 3), Cyber Security Technologist (Level 4), Data Analyst (Level 4)
- The personality and ability to engage prospective clients and effectively utilise this product knowledge to win new business

If this sounds like you, please click apply or get in contact if you have any questions
