A Sales Development Lead is required to assist in the advertising and promoting of the Multiply Maths programme. Multiply is a national programme funded by the DfE (free to the user) which aims to increase numeracy levels for adults for whom maths is a barrier to employment progression. Multiply courses can be offered to adults aged 19 and over who do not have a Maths Level 2 qualification or equivalent (GCSE). The course aims to boost numeracy skills in both work and daily life. The role will work alongside the Information & Media Administrator and Marketing team to generate appropriate digital and other advertising materials to use through social media and websites. The role will also require presence in Learning Hubs to engage the general public, and in town centres e.g. footfall in libraries and community venues.

Key responsibilities:

  • Generate leads and build relationships by nurturing warm prospects and finding potential new opportunities.
  • Encourage interested individuals, businesses and community groups to attend and complete the Multiply programme.
  • Other elements of sales tasks including recruitment, training and market research, as required.
  • Ensure a self-starter attitude while creating outreach strategies for new lead generation methods.
  • Anticipate needs by studying services and conducting market research to identify new leads.
  • Build open and honest relationships with prospective applicants.
  • Report to the Multiply Project Lead with weekly updates and progress.
  • Attend product training and develop an understanding of communication channels.
  • Monitor and attend meetings with prospects while handling the introductions and follow-up with next steps to attend the courses.
  • Be the first point of contact for new business prospects and determine the next steps for each prospect moving forward.
  • Collaborate with Project Lead and others delivering the Multiply programme to bring innovative lead generation ideas to each weekly meeting.
