Account Manager

Not your normal job advertisement - this is all about 'why, what and who'!

As an experienced sales professional in Apprenticeships, Recruitment, IT or Learning & Development, you might be asking why you would leave your current role to start in a new industry or company, so here goes.

What is the value add to employers (for those not already in the industry)?

Companies who have a paybill over £3m automatically have to put 0.5% of this amount towards Apprenticeships - this means they already have a budget to spend.

The Government is also offering employers £3,000 per new hire, regardless of the apprentice’s age and an additional £1,000 if the apprentice is aged 16 to 18 years old, or those under 25 with an Education, Health and Care Plan.

What is the benefit of going on an Apprenticeship for clients and their people?

Apprenticeships are open to all ages for new and existing employees and provide on the job learning which means they can get paid and do their role whilst furthering their education/skills.

What will you be selling?

The Apprenticeships programmes you will offer potential clients are IT Infrastructure, Digital Marketing, Software Development, Cyber Security, Business Analysis, Data Analysis, DevOps, Artificial Intelligence and Professional Management from Level’s 3/4 (A-Level), Level’s 4/5/6 (Degree) and Level 7 (Masters). As we all know, there is a big push to bridge the IT skills gap!

Do employers buy into Apprenticeships and can you deliver?

At QA, we have the highest overall pass rate among UK tech training providers (based on 2020 End Point Assessment by BCS), have 100,000 people apply to join our programmes every year (managed by the UK wide recruitment team) and have placed 30,000 people into apprenticeships.

What is it like to work at QA and is there career development?

Sales is a tough environment no matter which industry you are in, however, your team will make you feel welcome, you'll be put on a training programme and your managers (who have all progressed from this level to leadership roles) will support you. You will be put in a career framework where you can see your progression points and be fully encouraged to develop as a single contributor or future leader.

Do you offer flexible working?

These days, flexibility is key to a good work-life balance, therefore, you will be able to have a mixture of working from home and going into the office.

What will you bring to the role? 

  • Proven background in either Apprenticeships, Recruitment, IT or L&D sales
  • Desire to achieve maximum earning potential but not to the detriment of the team or customer experience 
  • Knowledge and understanding of how to pitch value add sales solutions
