Job description

Challenge Partners is seeking a purpose-led sales leader to deliver a crucial strand of our ambitious strategy to benefit 500,000 pupils each year by 2027.

Applications from our growth target regions - North West, North East, Yorkshire and Humber, and the Midlands - are strongly encouraged, but not essential. Weekly term-time office days in London are a requirement of the role, but we would consider reduced office days for a successful candidate based in one of these target regions.

Challenge Partners is an England-wide education charity with a mission to reduce educational inequality and improve the life chances of all children. We do this by delivering programmes and networks to boost school improvement, leadership development, and pupil progress.

By leading our sales and marketing, you will deliver a crucial strand of our exciting strategy to enhance and extend Challenge Partners to benefit 500,000 pupils each year by 2027. Reporting to the Chief Executive, your main objective will be to drive sales to increase the number of new schools and trusts joining Challenge Partners. You will also devise and lead marketing campaigns to build our brand and profile.

You will be the sales and marketing expert in the organisation, with good commercial sense and sensitivity to the sector. You will be able to design, execute and monitor impactful campaigns to help us reach new schools and trusts.  You will have the personal credibility to win the confidence of school and trust leaders and the tenacity to convert interest into sales personally and through your small team.

You will be a strong and highly-skilled communicator with excellent interpersonal skills and ability to develop and strengthen new and existing relationships.  As a confident public speaker, you will engage and inspire audiences of school and trust leaders.  As a senior leader you will have a track record of building, managing and developing high-performing teams and play an important role on our Leadership Team in steering the organisation and upholding our culture.

We are a small, but diverse and dynamic team. We expect everyone in the central team to get stuck in, so you will need to be comfortable to both set the strategy and ‘do the do’ in the functions you oversee.

All employees at Challenge Partners will be subject to an enhanced DBS check as part of our commitment to safeguarding. 

Challenge Partners is committed to diversity, equality and inclusion and we are working towards a goal where our team fully reflects the diversity and difference in lived experiences. We strongly encourage applications from under-represented groups including: people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ+ people, and those with disabilities.

Strictly no agencies.
