About us

At Arbor, we’re on a mission to transform the way schools work for the better.

You’ve probably seen the headlines. Heavy workloads, constant change, admin pressure on teachers and staff at every level… sometimes it feels like this is just part and parcel of school life today. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

At Arbor, we passionately believe that there’s a better way to work. And it starts by giving everyone the right tools and technology for the job. Over 3,000 schools and trusts use our products to work more collaboratively, free staff from busywork, and drive their schools forward.

Ultimately, we’re here to help make our schools and trusts stress a little less, and focus on what matters most - improving the lives of teachers and outcomes of students everywhere.

About the role

Our Partnership team is passionate about bringing new schools to Arbor in a consultative way and helping them solve problems of their current way of working. As the fastest-growing supplier in our market we’re looking for someone as ambitious as us to join our small sales development team and enjoy being part of our growth.

This is a fast paced, exciting inbound and outbound sales development role where you can make a real impact with our products and services. You’ll need to be naturally curious about what we do, our end users and how we can genuinely help schools save time with their data and administration tasks. By speaking to a variety of senior stakeholders, qualifying their needs and identifying solutions that Arbor can provide, you will then book and organise meetings with our Sales team.

You’ll also work hand in hand with our industry-leading marketing team on our busy campaigns and events schedule, so there’s lots to get stuck into. It’s a broad and exciting role, so if you’re naturally inquisitive, innovative and enjoy working in a fast paced environment - this could be the role for you!
