Apprentice Sales Specialist

As an Apprentice Sales Specialists, you’ll work to sell our products and services to our business customers. These might be small companies, or they might be big FTSE 100 companies with a presence across the world.

Each sales area works closely with our account management and deals teams (which you’ll be a part of), to help acquire new business and defend and grow existing business, as well as increase the awareness of our products and services and create a healthy sales pipeline.

You’ll work with our account management teams on small opportunities, and with our deals teams for larger opportunities to design, price and sell global solutions.  With exposure to so many different aspects of sales, you’ll be able to find out what you like, and what you don’t.

You’ll also learn lots of new skills, from managing customers and internal stakeholders, to negotiation, building rapport, and how to harness that entrepreneurial spirit.

With all your new skills, you’ll be able to take your sales career in any direction you choose.

The degree course runs for three years and is a work-based learning degree.

You’ll spend a minimum of 20% of your time learning and studying.
