Showmyhomework Show My Homework

Helping teachers, pupils and parents manage homework smarter

Description

Show My Homework is the fastest growing company in the education technology sector. Recognised by BETT (the world’s leading learning technology showcase) for ‘Innovation in ICT’, our product is unrivalled in the marketplace and as a result we are rapidly expanding. This is an amazing opportunity to join a business that is in the relatively early stages of growth, yet has already built a dazzling reputation in the industry.

We are looking for an individual not just to carry out the duties laid out in the job description, but who will become a dedicated and valued member of our team and grow with the company.

There is fantastic scope for career development and great financial rewards – you just need to demonstrate commitment, a fantastic work ethic and a willingness to go above and beyond.

The Sales Team

Ask anybody at Show My Homework what the best thing is about working here – they all say “the people”! Our sales team are a tight knit group. They work closely together, they help and rely on each other, they have built great friendships and they enjoy competing with each other. They are passionate about the company and are driven to over achieve their targets. There is nowhere to hide in this team as their results not only pay our salaries, but also drive the future of the business.

As part of this team you will be making up to 150 calls a day so you need to have a positive outlook, to be resilient, driven, organised, engaging and enthusiastic.

If you have knowledge or experience of the Private School system in UK that will be useful as we expand into that market.

The Role

Your role focuses on phoning and emailing schools and introducing them to the benefits of Show My Homework. You will need to identify the correct people at each school to talk to and book an appointment for them with our product demonstration team.

We are looking for people that can build a good rapport and generate conversations, rather than using an aggressive sales technique. Teachers are busy people and it can be hard to get hold of them, so you will need to make a lot of calls in order to have a small number of conversations, and you need to make those conversations count.

You must be a confident communicator who is prepared to use their initiative to investigate how the UK education industry works and the specifics of each school you are contacting, so that you can vary your strategy according to the school.

The ideal candidate will be passionate about education and technology and demonstrate a hunger to grow the business.
