Everyone deserves a job they love. Makers’ mission is to transform lives by training tech professionals through integrating education and employment.
You deserve a job you love. We’ve got one for you:
Makers is at the start of massive growth thanks to the launch of two new products. We need your help to scale up even faster by ensuring large employers have access to the tech talent they desperately need to grow. Your work will have direct impact on the companies we work with and the lives of hundreds of people every year.
We are looking for multiple talented Enterprise Sales Consultants to join our team. You’ll be connecting with the UK’s largest employers and helping them solve their tech recruitment problems and accelerate their digital transformation. We already work with the likes of JP Morgan, Tesco, Ford Labs, Santander, Vodafone and Deloitte, to name a few. You’ll be actively consulting with our clients, understanding their needs and, where relevant, connecting them to the software developers we train, Makers. This involves helping our clients to improve their recruitment practices, helping them to be more inclusive and better at identifying talent. You can read about our overall approach on our blog.
You’ll have the freedom to act in a way that you believe is right for the company. You’ll have a genuine say in the way the business is run, and the environment in which you work. You’ll be encouraged to identify problems and solve them; and to seek out new opportunities and pursue them. In short, you’ll have a voice that will be heard and valued.
Success in this role looks like:
You create your own pipeline of opportunities, from scratch
You build trusting relationships with large employers to help them solve their talent and digital transformation challenges
You manage a portfolio of clients and developers with a dedicated delivery team

Creating email and social campaigns and other strategies to connect with those employers
Understanding the challenges and needs of the employers you meet
Consulting with the employers and advising them on their digital hiring strategy
Working closely with them to creatively solve their problems
Coordinating with the delivery team to ensure we provide the most amazing service to our clients

Create a pipeline of dozens of relationships with potential employers;
Sign 1-2 contracts with large employers;
Place your first handful of Makers and sell a few Apprenticeships;
Within your first 12 months, you can expect to:

Working in a company that’s built on trust over fear with a core mission to transform lives;

We have a minimum holiday policy, rather than a maximum – we encourage our team to take at least 28 days a year;

We’re building a working environment (and recruitment process) where everyone feels welcome and included – we think we’re doing a good job of that so far, but we know can do a lot better, and we’re committed to learning what more we can do to improve. If reading this job description has given you any doubt about whether you’d feel welcome or included at Makers, first, we’re really sorry; and second, we’d really like to hear from you about it, so we don’t do it again.
At Makers, we are inspired by the idea of discovering and unlocking tech skills potential in people for the benefit of business and society. We combine tech education with employment possibilities that transform lives.
Founded in 2013, we’ve helped more than 1,500 people begin a new career in software and have been building long-term relationships with tech employers big and small.
We’re pretty good at what we do, according to our clients (both developers and employers), industry bodies, the press and the government. We can only get better by working with you.
