You will be part of a friendly, collaborative team and you will report into one of two supportive and knowledgeable managers, who have been with Pearson for 11 and 18 years respectively.

Success in this role can be attributed to many things including; organisation and time management skills, rapport building and sales technique however one of the most important factors for success is product knowledge. If you can talk confidently about our products you will do well. Any knowledge of the UK schools systems will give you an advantage but either way, for all we provide on-going training to get you up to speed. This could be in the form of classroom style learning, online training or one-to-one coaching from your manager.
