Job Description

Who We’re Looking For

We’re looking to recruit experienced Account Managers to support and grow the network of employers we work with across Somerset.

The role involves promoting and selling SS&L’s portfolio of services; primarily traineeships and apprenticeships, including virtual and classroom-based training solutions to employers across a range of sectors.

You'll need to be proactive, motivated and able to build strong relationships with your clients to ascertain their business’s training and apprenticeship requirements. You'll be required to manage employer’s apprenticeship vacancies, working with applicants to match them with apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities.

The role involves travel across the county, so you'll need a car and be willing to work flexibly. The role is target driven as we are an organisation with ambitious growth plans, so a self-motivated, energetic individual with a sales focused account management or recruitment background would thrive in this role. An understanding of the education, training or apprenticeship industry would be ideal but is not essential. You'll be joining our organisation at an exciting time of growth and development and be happy to work within our ethos of changing lives through learning.

In order to be successful in this role, you will need to demonstrate how you are able to meet SS&L’s core values: Growth, Integrity, Innovation, Respect, Drive.

If you choose to join our dedicated staff team, you will find that SS&L provides a supportive and well-balanced working environment in which we help our staff to develop and grow in their roles.

If you can offer us the qualities we’re looking for, we can offer you an excellent working environment where you will not only receive training and development opportunities, and excellent holiday and pension benefits, you will also be supporting the growth and development of the local communities in which we operate.

  • 29 days annual leave + bank holidays + up to 2 gifted Christmas days
