A core part of the Retail growth strategy has been the development of partnerships with a wide range of new channels including Companies, Universities and Local Authorities to source donated stock. Essential to this growth strategy is the need for effective account management of existing University partnerships developed in previous years to increase their value as well as the acquisition of new Universities to bring stock into the charity.

We are recruiting a University Account Executive to join and play an important role in this growth strategy. A new, diverse and exciting role you'll report to the University Account Manager and work alongside our existing University Account Executive to cover the work we do in Scotland, Northern Ireland and the North of England. This role is a job share and you will be jointly responsible for all current University partnerships in the aforementioned regions as well as securing further partners over the next 2 years to reach our 2020 targets.

About you

You'll have strong new business/sales generation experience with the ability to pitch to Universities, as well as develop and implement delivery plans for Universities for the Retail Division. Targeting students leaving at the end of the academic year to help generate significant levels of stock for many of our shops and stores, you'll have excellent communication skills working closely with our field, marketing and business development team. You'll also be responsible for carrying out diligent data analysis, evaluation of each activity and reporting.

Beyond the University campaign you will be the key point of contact within Retail leading on the delivery of cross sell and upsell of additional stock generation, sales promotion and key charity campaigns in the region.

And if you want to help us get there sooner, you could be the University Account Executive we need.
