Check with seller Dynamic and Ambitious Assistant Marketing Manager

Published date: December 20, 2020
  • Location: United Kingdom

A future CEO wanted – A Bright, Dynamic and Ambitious person wanted to assist in growing a company

An A Player wanted to help accelerate the growth of a new aspect of our business. Then to attract other A players to scale the company. Perhaps the next Steve Jobs or Jeff Bezos!

The person

We are looking for a bright, young person who is energetic and hungry for success – with energy and enthusiasm. A focused and determined individual who wants to be the best in what they do is required. Experience matters less than what you have to offer as an individual and we welcome someone with no related work experience whatsoever, but who is willing to take. You would have already achieved academic results in the past – together with other attributes in sport, music or other extra-curricular activity. An older person who can convince and prove that they see a role for themselves will also be considered for this position.

The Mission – (it is not a job as such but a mission!) to play a very active role in achieving exponential growth in a new aspect of online teaching of GCSE and A-level that we are starting to offer. It is largely a marketing role, but we want someone who is prepared to be involved in other aspects of our operation and not just marketing and business development. You will engage yourself in all aspects of marketing – including digital and analogue, and contribute to innovation, testing and development in all areas of products, promotion and, possibly, operations. There is the opportunity to become a partner in the business as soon as the first task is accomplished, which will be typically within a year or two

The qualities that matter most for this position are as follows:

An Excellent Communicator – with good written and spoken English and an articulate speaker– preferably with a neutral and not a strong accent and easy to understand on the phone

A focused individual who is well-disciplined and able to work using his/her own initiative

Someone who can follow instructions and work with a soundly laid-out script in an orderly manner

Someone with very sound knowledge of the British education system – perhaps someone who has just left school or university and who is familiar with the terminologies for different year groups, such as KS3, KS4, A-level and so on. An intelligent person with no detailed knowledge, but who can learn quickly is acceptable

Someone who considers himself/herself to be a clever person and who easily grasps concepts. A lot of thinking on your feet is vital and having a good degree of arithmetical competence would be helpful

Ability to socialise is not necessarily an advantage, but not a hindrance either. We are looking for an articulate and focused person who is comfortable with being set targets, and is happy to work individually most of the time and sometimes with colleagues

Someone who is ambitious and happy to start with a reasonable rate of pay, but wants to earn a high income within one to two years’ time

This is not a position for a mediocre person who wants to be like everyone else. We are looking for someone who wants to be the best and who is very competitive

We market very proactively to parents with high aspirations – those who want their sons and daughters to gain admission to a top university. Hence, we are not shy to promote excellence. This is in despite of some people seeing excellence as elitism. There is nothing bad in elitism, provided it is based on merit and not on undue favouritism or nepotism. It is almost certain that the person we are looking for is a graduate from a top university – or of similar ability. Perhaps you may be thinking of being the next Jeff Bezos or Steve Jobs!

An implementer is preferred, but if you are the creative type, you need to convince us that you can also implement or attract and motivate other(s) who are good at implementing –getting things done and achieving the desired results

A person who believes in adding value, for which there is no guarantee, but the reality of life is a reward for those who contribute.

More attributes of the person we want

If you fit the requirements above and also below, please let us know.

A problem solver and not a moaner – someone who thrives on taking responsibility and who will be rewarded for it handsomely
An intelligent person with excellent communication skills
Not shy to get on the phone and make telephone calls to prospects and vendors/partners
A high achiever with a proven track record of being brilliant at something – which could be academic, sports, music or other extra-curricular activities
It will not be about money initially, but, once results start to come in, your earnings will dramatically grow. The initial earning is between £20,000 to £25,000 per year as the basic – possibly more, with an additional commission taking the earnings past £30k and well beyond in a relatively short time

Primary role

Your primary role will be to engage yourself in all aspects of marketing – including digital and analogue (online and offline), and to contribute to innovation in all aspects of product development, promotion and operation. You will be using the resources we have at our disposal to develop marketing expertise in areas such as Google PPC, YouTube, Podcasts, Blogs, LinkedIn and Facebook. You are expected to learn within a very short period, quickly progressing to implementing, testing and innovating. You will be exposed to abundant material in terms of learning resources that have proven to work. At the same time, you will be encouraged to test other ideas, refining, gathering data for use as feedback to improve and then scaling up what works.

Secondary role

Following up on prospective parents by presenting them with what we do and helping to answer any questions they may have. You will be looking to book consultations or convert them into paying clients. You will be doing this mainly via telephone calls, but this position does not include cold calling. Prospective parents have contacted us previously to express an interest in our services.

Being creative is not the most important attribute for this position. We are looking for a methodical and well-organised individual, with excellent communication skills. We provide a service that people want and there is no need for hard selling. There are abundant resources to back up the sales effort, but excellent performance is expected.

There will be the flexibility to work four to five days per week, including most Saturdays (about 20 Saturdays a year).

This role involves using people skills, whereby you will be required to speak to people on the phone, conducting research or presenting our services to clients. The ability to learn very quickly and develop your own expertise in a fast-moving work environment is essential.

We are looking for someone who will grab the bull by the horns and use the resources that are available to achieve outstanding success. In the process of doing that, you will also be able to develop and grow as an individual.

Working place and format

This position does not necessarily have to be 9 to 5! The position is full time – four to five days a week of work – partly remote working. There is the requirement to meet up in the office about two or three times a week. The rest of the time you will work remotely from home or from other out-of-the-conventional-office-environment for part of the working time. For travelling purposes, the position would be suited to someone who lives somewhere between London and Brighton, as the main office is at present located in West Sussex– but that may change later. Smart casual dress preferred – and certainly no sloppy dressing! Remote working will involve working on Zoom/similar technology, with the use of video expected.

What we do

The main company is Excel in Key Subjects – which has been established for almost two decades, and provides extra tuition classes for secondary school students who are studying for A-level and GCSE. Our clients are parents of teenagers who want their children to achieve high academic performance and high exam grades in core academic subjects, so they can gain admission to top universities.

This position is about growing a new aspect of our service, Excel iLearn – which is mainly an online learning platform – with more flexibility for GCSE and A-level students to learn.

Future opportunities and development

This is not a career in the traditional sense, but a mission! A mission to assist young people with high aspiration to achieve their dreams. In the process, you will be making a difference, growing and developing the expertise to achieve great things. Making money must never be the primary goal; however, there is the potential to be rewarded very handsomely for your contributions and the result that you achieve. You will start with a position that sounds and looks like an Assistant Marketing Manager, quickly progressing to a Marketing Director and potential CEO within a relatively short period. A bright, dynamic, good communicator and ambitious person is of the essence.

The company has a policy of up or out. We are looking to work with the top 20% - high achievers who relish a challenge. If you do well, you will rise up very quickly, but in the event this is not the right environment for you, we’d be happy to part on friendly terms.

To apply, do the following:

a. In addition, record a video of between 75 to 135 seconds to say one or two things about yourself and why you will be the best person for this position. You may put the video on a YouTube webpage or on any platform of your choosing and include the url in your CV/application

b. Send your CV
