Trainee Sales or Graduate

Trainee salespeople receive both in house and external sales training, as well as extensive product training. In this role graduates will primarily be responsible for making appointments for Parago’s external sales consultants to meet with business managers and senior leadership personnel at schools and academies. Parago does not cold call schools, instead it sends letters with testimonials from other local schools who have purchased its systems backed up with marketing literature. These are then followed up with telephone calls by the sales trainees. Parago also calls existing customers to check they are happy with the system and to ask for referrals to local schools or invitations to give presentations. Trainee salespeople are paid a bonus for making appointments and a further bonus if the appointment turns into a sale. This is a great way to start your career in sales and to springboard into other sales consultant and senior consultant roles at Parago.

Anyone who is about to start their career in sales should apply for the role by emailing careers@parago.co.uk, Parago would love to hear from you.

Sales/Senior Sales Consultants

Sales consultants cover an area that includes around 4,000 schools in England. They attend meetings made by internal sales trainees, second stage appointments, and appointments made by themselves from phone calls to Parago’s existing customers to obtain leads. They also attend appointments with existing schools to review usage. During the school holidays they also carry out system implementation services, they keep themselves updated on system developments, and attend quarterly sales and product training days at Parago’s head office in Reading. Consultants are paid a good basic salary depending on experience, a car allowance and there is no ceiling on commission, which means that OTE range from £50 to £70K.
