At Parago Software we have a number of graduate trainee sales and sales/senior sales consultant vacancies, as well as a once in a lifetime opportunity to go and work in the US.
If you are ambitious and tenacious by nature, enjoy a challenge and are a self-starter, this could be the opening that you have been looking for to springboard your career.
Parago is a dynamic, fast growing software company serving schools and multi-academy trusts across every region in the UK – from the north-east to the south-west of the country – helping schools to manage their assets in a much more efficient and affordable way. We have a great team of people and business is booming, hence our need to recruit and build out our salesforce.
The right candidate will have great verbal communication skills and be very driven to succeed. He or she will enjoy working in a pressured but supportive environment and most of all be goal-oriented and not afraid to have a target to hit. Below is a bit more detail on the roles we have available
Trainee Sales or Graduate
Trainee salespeople receive both in-house and external sales training, as well as extensive product training. In this role, you will primarily be responsible for making appointments for our external sales consultants to meet with business managers and senior leadership personnel at schools and academies. We do not cold call schools, instead, we send letters with testimonials from other local schools who have purchased our systems backed up with marketing literature. These are then followed up with telephone calls by the sales trainees. We also call existing customers to check they are happy with the system and to ask for referrals to local schools or invitations to give presentations. Trainee salespeople are paid a bonus for making appointments and a further bonus if the appointment turns into a sale. This is a great way to start your career in sales and to springboard into other sales consultant and senior consultant roles at Parago.
Sales/Senior Sales Consultants
Sales consultants cover an area that includes around 4,000 schools in England. They attend meetings made by internal sales trainees, second stage appointments, and appointments made by themselves from phone calls to our existing customers to obtain leads. They also attend appointments with existing schools to review usage. During the school holidays they also carry out system implementation services, they keep themselves updated on system developments, and attend quarterly sales and product training days at our head office in Reading. Consultants are paid a good basic salary depending on experience, a car allowance and there is no ceiling on commission, which means that OTE ranges from £50 to £70K.
If you think you have the software sales skills and have worked in the education sector, do apply! We’d love to hear from you.
USA Senior Sales Consultants
Parago is so successful here in the UK that we are now branching out to the US. Initially, we will sell to US state K12 school districts, and the first senior sales consultant to be appointed will be based in Greenville South Carolina. This is an exciting opportunity for a high performing salesperson who has good experience selling to the education sector in the USA or UK. Building on an excellent testimonial from a district of schools in South Carolina we will be exhibiting and presenting at the SC Ed Tech conference in November. We will also be exhibiting at conferences in California, Texas and Colorado during 2017. This is a role that will appeal to someone looking for their next challenge and who likes the idea of working abroad. How great will that look on your CV?
So if you are ready to either start your career in sales or you are looking for your next career challenge, why not get in touch?
