Full Description
Account Executive with ZenEducate 

UK schools spend well over £2bn per year on covering short term absences with supply teachers.

 

The current model is exclusively reliant on agencies that charge a massive commission and are terribly inefficient (everything is paper and phone-call based).

 

We are consolidating this analogue, fragmented, and inefficient marketplace onto a digital platform. In the process we'll pull hundreds of millions of waste out of the education system and have a huge positive impact on teachers and schools.

We are well-funded, have high-profile investors and are led by start-up veterans behind two of London's most prominent tech companies.

Your chance to make a difference:

This is your chance to join a tech startup on the ground floor. As an early employee you will play a significant role in the development of the company and have the opportunity for rapid career progression and learning.

What we are looking for:

  • Top performer that wants to be part of a high-performing, motivated team 

  • Proven track record of hitting sales targets 

  • Confident in developing outbound pipeline and handling objections 

  • Growth mindset – dedicated to growing your skills as a professional 

  • Passion for companies that have a positive social impact and the education sector 

  • Strong bias to action

What you would be doing

  • Own the relationship with key customers including retention, expansion and new business 

  • Lead school leaders through successful recruitment processes using a consultative approach 

  • Call schools and build pipeline by marketing relevant candidates 

  • Recruit talented candidates and ensure a good experience for them by matching their skills to schools’ requirements 

  • Handle objections and secure placements for candidates and schools 

  • Maintain constructive relationships with candidates and schools to ensure retention and repeat business 

  • Work collaboratively with the sales, operations and the technology team to continuously improve efficiency in delivering value to schools. 

  • Get your hands dirty. Like any true start-up, no two weeks will be the same and a general interest in ‘mucking in’ and just getting the job done is crucial

 

What's in it for you?

  • Competitive salary 

  • Ownership in the company 

  • 25 days holiday 

  • Convenient Central London office 

  • Fun-loving, tight-knit team solving a problem that makes a difference
