As the Account Manager you’ll generate, manage and drive the pipeline of sponsored students from initial enquiry to arrival. You’ll develop relationships with sponsoring organisations (governmental and private), ensuring our value proposition meets their needs and expectations. You’ll also develop and maintain effective relationships with our wide network of student recruitment agencies.

You’ll be a good team player, resilient, tenacious and a strong negotiator, but with the commitment to first rate customer service that an account manager needs.
Why should I want the job?
First and foremost, we offer a highly competitive salary, plus an excellent sales commission scheme – so you’ll be rewarded for success! It’s an opportunity to work for Study Group, the 2017 Pathway Company of the Year*, in a newly created role within a growing department.
