We are looking for a motivated and talented individual with sales and stakeholder engagement experience to join Ambition Institute as a School Partnerships Manager on a 12 month fixed term contract (maternity cover).

The role is responsible for pursuing and converting sales opportunities, owning relationships with accounts of varying size and designing and delivering a strategy for programme recruitment and sales in their region.

  • We train teachers and leaders at all levels to get better at the things that make the biggest difference: what you teach, how you teach it, and how you create the conditions for schools to thrive. 
  • We share what works. Everyone can benefit from evidence of how great teaching and leadership can improve schools and change lives, so we connect people to the latest research and best practice. 
  • We champion every teacher and school leader’s potential to develop, as the driving force for sustainable school improvement.
