Sales Manager – Software - Education sector
Head office in Reading, but covering England and beyond
Parago Software has developed the leading Asset & Estates Management SAAS solution for education, which incorporates IT & Inventory, Premises & Compliance, and another eight associated modules. We have 2,000 customers mainly in the UK, but also in the US and worldwide. Our sales have seen consistent growth since we started in 2010, with an excellent customer retention level.
We are a 22 strong team of ex graduate internal and external sales, finance, support and development staff based in Reading. We require a Sales Manager who has been selling and leading a software sales team to the school, academy and MAT sector. Experience selling to education overseas is desirable, but not essential. Our head office is in Reading, but applicants can be based anywhere in England.
Your role will be leading the sales team by example, whilst helping our sales trainees and consultants improve their selling skills. This is likely to be your second job in sales management/leadership position. Our software has a high technical specification, and you will need to learn the system fully to be able to carry out the role successfully. You will be instrumental in helping the company through its next five years of expansion. We have now expanded to the US, and intend to grow our business in British Schools across the world. Your reward will be an excellent salary and bonus package, and the chance of future share options.
This is a fantastic opportunity for the right person. You will need to demonstrate a credible record of personal and sales team growth within education. In the role you will retain a small sales area to lead by example, and be responsible for guiding a young sales team to the next level.
