We are Multiverse, a tech scaleup with a social mission. We re creating a diverse group of future leaders by building an outstanding alternative to university and corporate training, through the power of professional apprenticeships.
We re one of the fastest-growing businesses in Europe and rapidly expanding in North America, working with over 500 clients including McKinsey & Co, Morgan Stanley, Verizon and Visa. In June 2022, we broke the EdTech funding record (again!) by announcing our $220m Series D, making Multiverse the UK s first ever EdTech unicorn.
Join us on our journey to democratising access to the best careers and learning opportunities.
This is an amazing opportunity to kickstart a career in sales that s rewarding in every sense of the word.
We re looking for exceptional people to join our six-month Sales Academy internship. Those who are successful at the end of the program will be offered a permanent, full-time job.
You ll earn GBP27,000 per annum during the internship. Upon completion, you ll move up to a base salary of GBP35,000 - with the potential to double that by hitting targets.
Please note you'll have to be permanently based in the UK to apply for this role.
What you ll be doing
In this entry-level sales role, you ll develop our existing accounts and - most importantly - build a pipeline of new ones. We re already working with exciting startups like Just Eat, Vashi and Starling Bank, plus established giants like American Express, Ford and KPMG. Who will you add to the list?
You ll be given all the tools you need to thrive. Interns learn from a world-class sales playbook developed by Jeremy Duggan and Steve McCluskey. These industry leaders share an impressive track record of taking four tech companies to billion-dollar valuations (now five including Multiverse!) - including taking AppDynamics from $100 million to $3.7 billion in just four-and-a-half years.
The playbook is key. From planning against sales targets to prospecting and qualifying opportunities, to understanding business problems and finding just the right solution - it covers it all. On top of this, you ll be given plenty of support.
Core to our culture within Go To Market at Multiverse is developing high potential individuals to become the top operators in our industry, who will go onto lead important organisations. This will include fundamental sales training, weekly 1:1 coaching sessions and quarterly reviews from established sales maestros.
This is your chance to carve out a career at one of the UK s hottest companies - that has now gone global. Here, you ll grow your skills, your network and your future alongside driven colleagues - and have fun doing it. Together, we re empowering a diverse group of future leaders. Join us.
You may not have sales experience, but you will have a track record of making the most of every opportunity you re given.
Perhaps you ve achieved a high level in sports, the arts, or another hobby. Maybe you ve made a positive impact in your community, topped your class, or turned a side hustle into something BIG. Whatever it is, you ll be an outstanding individual determined to get the most out of your talent.
Sales can be full-on but that s why we love it. So you ll be someone who thrives under pressure and feeds off the buzz. Someone who isn t afraid to put themselves out there, pick up the phone, and make things happen. Building relationships should come easy to you - and you ll love connecting with people.
Most importantly, you ll be driven to learn and exceed expectations. Passionate about social mobility, you ll be eager to carve out a career in sales and help Multiverse achieve its mission.
