Sales and acquisiton
at Third Space Learning in London
(₤1980 per month)
We are a team of technologists, educators and entrepreneurs who are helping to transform an education system in which too many children still fall through the gaps.
We do this by building intelligent technology to recruit, train and qualify a global community of academic talent, making effective one-to-one learning more accessible than ever before.
Our innovation is built on challenging the problem of teacher supply by unlocking human potential around the world. 70% of the world’s university graduates are located in emerging markets, a huge pool of talent. Our model provides a highly scalable platform to train and develop this talent, connecting it to children around the world for one-to-one support.
The company was founded in 2013 and is based in Aldgate. We’re currently a team of 40 in London and over 300 across India and Sri Lanka. We’re growing quickly; doubling revenue last year to £3m, and raising £7.5m in funding to scale our business to the global vision we pursue.
Our opportunity is global and our ambition is to be teaching hundreds of thousands of pupils across the world in the next few years. Our starting point has been transforming maths education in primary schools across the UK…
Schools join us throughout the year but summer is one of our busiest times of year with many schools looking ahead to the following year and looking to us to help them transform maths in their primary school.
It will be your role to speak to these schools who are looking to join us, tell them about Third Space and run a trial for them if they are interested (which they will be once they hear about us). After the trial, you will follow up and take their booking for next year.
If you enjoy yourself and perform well, there is definitely scope for a permanent role within our fast growing company.
