CONTEXT

We seek social change by cultivating a global community of the most ambitious talent to make effective online teaching more accessible than ever before. Research has increasingly shown the importance of the core subjects: of children who failed to achieve expected levels in literacy and maths at age 11, only 7% achieved 5 good GCSEs. Over 50% of the pupils that we work with are from disadvantaged backgrounds.

We help schools and families through two platforms:

Third Space Learning (Established in 2013): 50,000+ children taught in 1800+ schools across the UK by 1,000+ tutors across India and Sri Lanka, 30+ Team in London, focused on marketing, technology and analytics

Matr (Established November 2018): Offers one-to-one maths tuition online to children at home delivered by a tutor community teaching from India.

 

PURPOSE

Tutoring is traditionally an elitist product - we’ve managed to create a product which changes this and allows the underserved to receive world class tuition at an affordable price. This means that no child has to be left behind. We want you to speak to parents across the country (and sometimes world) to persuade them to take up our offer of a no-obligation free trial of our online maths tuition programme. They’ll all have enquired, and given us their contact information (so no cold calling).

We are looking for an intelligent, passionate and tenacious individual who is excited by the idea of growing a startup, and becoming a future leader within the team. You will be the first official member of the sales team for Matr, but will work within a larger acquisition team; all of which have been supporting Matr throughout launch. Once you’ve excelled and Matr continues to grow, you’ll hopefully take on leadership of future hires into the Matr team.

 

REQUIREMENTS

  • Undergraduate degree from a top university
  • Fantastic communicator
  • High attention to detail
  • Ability to build rapport over the phone
  • Energy and creativity: positivity and enthusiasm are at the core of our sales team

Preferred (but not essential)

  • Experience of selling in both a B2B & B2C capacity
  • Edtech experience
  • Experience using Salesforce
  • Ability to build rapport over the phone and in person

 

BENEFITS

Alongside a competitive salary, we offer fast career growth, and more importantly, the opportunity to change the lives of thousands of disadvantaged children every year.
