US Sales Representative for a fun and dynamic education company
We are looking for a superstar to help us promote our World Languages website to our growing client base of schools in the US. The role is home-based and gives you school holidays off (based on US term-times). This would really suit experienced professionals who are looking for an exciting role in the UK which offers maximum flexibility.
www.thisislanguage.com helps teach French, Spanish, German and ESL to Middle and High School students through fun and engaging online videos and games. We only use authentic language videos and we are already used by over 500 schools in the US and more than 1000 worldwide. We are making language learning exciting and relevant again.
We are looking to recruit an organised, proactive and speedy Sales Representative to liaise with Teachers and District Supervisors from new schools in the US who want to bring thisislanguage.com into their schools. Although ultimately you will be selling into schools, the role is more about showing off the features and benefits of thisislanguage.com so that the school can make an informed decision about whether to buy or not. There is no hard selling. However, you will have excellent people and presentation skills, unparalleled time-management skills and will be highly computer literate.
Working from home, you will only need to work during the US school term and you will be required to work 4-5 hours a day, Monday to Friday. You will be in control of how you manage your time to fit in with your daily routine and meet term objectives, although because of the time-difference at least half of your working hours should be after 3pm.
You will work in close collaboration with the CEO of the website and will have excellent support from 2 really experienced US Account Managers.
Other aspects of the role include:
Reaching out to new territories to arrange a 14-day trial
Handling in-bound trial requests and demonstrating the website where required
Invoicing new subscribers
Maintaining a good relationship with clients
Resolving any technical issues and administrative enquiries when they arise (training provided)
Renewing client subscriptions
You will receive training and weekly support from a sales manager, be given a laptop and earn commission on top of earnings.
If you’ve had any involvement in education, procurement or languages that would be a bonus but ultimately, we are looking for confident and passionate people who love what we do and believe in our product.
