Job Description

Sales Consultant - Primary Schools (South East)


About us….

At Pearson, the Global Leader in Education Services, we’re committed to a world that’s always learning and to our talented team who makes it all possible. From bringing lectures vividly to life to turning textbooks into laptop lessons, we are always re-examining the way people learn best, whether it’s one child in our own backyard or an education community across the globe. We are bold thinkers and standout innovators who motivate each other to explore new frontiers in an environment that supports and inspires us to always be better. By pushing the boundaries of technology — and each other to surpass these boundaries — we create seeds of learning that become the catalyst for the world’s innovations, personal and global, large and small.

About the team

The sales consultant will sit in our UK Schools Primary sales team. Self Motivated? Creative? Positive and outwardly thinking? Willing to own the opportunity and demonstrate resilience?

So who are we looking for……

You don’t need to have any prior experience in the Education sector, although we do like to hire people who have a genuine interest in this field. We provide a layered approach to training with the opportunity to shadow experienced colleagues in order to gain knowledge.

We do require you to have experience of successfully managing a sales territory, consultative sales and excellent organisational skills with the ability to assimilate and deliver new information to a range of key decision makers and stakeholders. Last but not least you need to have a positive and determined attitude to work.

So if you have a passion for connecting with people, influencing others and are driven to support schools in achieving the best for their learners, then we would love to meet you to discuss the role further.
