Hello! Tales Toolkit is growing and needs a new team member to take charge of sales and marketing.
We are Tales Toolkit. We believe story is a super powerful learning gizmo and use storytelling to provide interactive, child-led resources to schools. Our storytelling kits mean children can magically weave their own tales and creatively solve problems. Essentially it’s a fun and exciting way for children to learn important development skills!
Tales Toolkit has gone from strength to strength, winning awards and partnering with local authorities and charitable organisations. So far we’ve been winging it. It’s been all-hands-on-deck as we react to brilliant opportunities and successes. We’ve been very fortunate, driven and supported by our amazing education practitioners.
Now we need someone full of charisma, passion and creativity to be our spokesperson. To shout about us from the rooftops, building our brand through our marketing channels and connecting personally with our schools to proactively seek out new sales opportunities.
WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING:
You’ll be marketing and selling a product that’s proven to work, that everyone thinks is ace and that is, crucially, not in the least bit boring. However, teachers are superheroes. Overworked, underpaid, stressed, criticised, tired and wonderful superheroes. And they are being offered shiny new interventions all the time. So differentiation and clarity of message is key.This means getting to know our education practitioners, really listening, and understanding what’s important to them.
Put your commercial hat on and help us identify and reach new markets and schools. You’ll have the joys of interacting with our brilliant settings, strengthening relationships with current schools and using their creative stories and best practice to develop reach further.
Bring out your best ideas as we unleash you on our social media platforms and promotional material. Create new ways to reach and engage our current Tales Toolkit storytellers, shout about the amazing difference we’re making, while encouraging new settings and practitioners to find out more.

THE DIFFERENCE YOU WILL MAKE
Early Years sets the stage for the rest of our lives, and development at that age impacts everything. It can determine health, happiness, success; it can also drive inequality.
