We are looking for a Primary Sales Consultant to work school term-time. In this varied and challenging role, the successful candidate will sell print and digital resources to primary schools and local authority contacts in Scotland. The responsibilities of this role would include visiting schools and local authorities, representing the company at exhibitions and conferences, carrying out telesales and online meetings and delivering regular qualitative and quantitative reports. Living in the Edinburgh or Glasgow areas, you will travel to all parts of Scotland ensuring schools are aware of our range and offering excellent customer service and support.
