Thompson & Terry Recruitment are working with a social/education technology start-up business who are revolutionising the way that schools, parents, and advertisers can communicate.
Having recently secured a significant capital investment through crowd-funding, this exciting tech start-up are looking to further expand their team and introduce an ambitious and experienced Sales Manager.
As Sales Manager, you will be responsible for driving the productivity of a sales team of 3. This will include, establishing sales targets and KPIs, implementing monthly performance reviews, and working to analyse and improve the commercial side of the business.

Our client has created an innovative virtual networking tool that enables parents, with children in education, to communicate with each other and with the school via a mobile app. This can be used to arrange play dates, school pickups, record homework tasks and organise school events. Born out of frustration, the business was initially set up by two parents looking to exploit a gap in the market to help facilitate better communications between parents and primary schools.
The company itself is passionate about strengthening the communities within the primary education sector, and making life easier and more efficient for parents and schools alike. So far, they have received outstanding feedback and are continuing to grow and succeed. Due to recent investment, and ongoing success, our new and dynamic client are looking to expand their team and build their business further.
This is a really exciting opportunity to be part of a fresh and growing business, where you can really make a difference. Our client are looking for a Sales Manager who is passionate about the business and keen to grow and develop their career with the company.
