About The Ambassador Platform

The Ambassador Platform (TAP) is the market leader in Experience Communication Management (XCM) technology for global education providers. Our product enables 100+ global Higher Education providers to share an authentic digital insight into what the experience of being part of their institution is really like by allowing prospects to engage directly with ambassadors, through conversations, user-generated content and live events.

Our culture

TAP is a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment. We operate a 'high trust, high performance, and high transparency' culture. Our key focus is on strong outcomes, where everyone is self-motivated and empowered to take responsibility and accountability for their own performance and the completion of work, but is given reasonable flexibility for the management of their own time. In conjunction with this there is high visibility around progress and outcomes across the company, and everyone is expected and encouraged to highlight areas of improvement. Above all, we value the people we work with, building strong and lasting relationships, and are always friendly, kind and approachable.

TAP is headquartered in the UK and has offices in London, Boston, Lviv, and Sydney. Find out what it’s really like to work with us by chatting to our friendly team and see what we get up to on Linkedin, and Twitter.

Impact

We’re looking for someone who will:

  • Own ‘new business’ revenue in a designated region working alongside two Business Development Reps and our Marketing team who will be generating leads and booking meetings for you. TAP is launching new partnerships and products as well as expanding into adjacent sectors to Higher Education so it’s an exciting time for growth. You’ll be a key part of this innovation, figuring out new approaches and helping the whole team scale.
  • Teach your colleagues in the Commercial Team how we can grow faster and be more successful from your previous experience and learnings gained on the job. The Business Development Representatives you’ll be working with are recent graduates and looking to grow in their careers as sales people. They will be looking to you for mentorship and guidance in their development.
  • Learn about TAP’s solution and our sales process so that you’re able to talk to senior decision makers about how Experience Communication Management can solve problems for their organisation and consistently close deals. You’ll work closely alongside the co-founders of the company, helping the company scale our growth.
  • Improve TAP’s sales process and key client engagements by bringing creativity to your work and figuring out new approaches to improve our results.

Progress

Within 1 month you will have completed our supportive and comprehensive onboarding process and be a fully integrated team member.

Within 3 months you will be a fully trained team member with knowledge of all of our systems, fully productive in terms of your activities and, most likely, will have closed your first few deals.

Within 6 months you will be confident in the role, consistently hitting targets and contributing to team knowledge and process improvements. Additionally, you’ll be supporting more junior team members with their development and getting involved in sector development projects.
