Sales Development Representative

London • Full-time
School success team

The opportunity


UK schools spend over £1.3bn per year on covering short term absences with supply teachers. The current model is exclusively reliant on agencies that charge a massive commission and are terribly inefficient — everything is paper and phone-call based.

We are consolidating this analogue, fragmented, and inefficient marketplace onto a digital platform. In the process we’ll pull hundreds of millions of waste out of the education system and have a huge positive impact on teachers and schools.

We are well-funded by high-profile investors, have had significant early traction, and are led by start-up veterans behind two of London’s most prominent tech companies.

Your chance to make a difference

This is your chance to join a tech startup on the ground floor. As an early employee you will play a significant role in the development of the company and have the opportunity for rapid career progression and learning.

The role


Who we are looking for

  • Top performer that wants to be part of a high-performing, motivated team
  • Proven track record of hitting sales targets
  • Confident in developing outbound pipeline and handling objections
  • Growth mindset — dedicated to growing your skills as a professional
  • Passion for companies that have a positive social impact and the education sector
  • Strong bias to action

What you'll be doing

  • Generate introductions to new schools that would benefit from Zen Educate’s offering
  • Lead school leaders through successful on-boarding process using a consultative approach
  • Support school marketing efforts
  • Work collaboratively with the sales, operations and the technology team to continuously improve efficiency in delivering value to schools.
  • Get your hands dirty. Like any true start-up, no two weeks will be the same and a general interest in ‘mucking in’ and just getting the job done is crucial

Experience & Qualifications Required

  • University degree
  • Strong interest in sales
  • Interest in UK state education sector

What's in it for you?

  • Work that you want to talk about
  • Competitive salary
  • Ownership in the company
  • 25 days of holiday
  • Central London office with perks like fresh fruit, yoga classes, bike parking, showers and an on-site gym and café
  • Fun-loving, tight-knit team solving a problem that makes a difference
