Tomi Alabi(opens new window) and Lucy Thorniley(opens new window) discovered our Sales Academy and saw this as a great opportunity to pursue a career in sales. Multiverse offers the opportunity to progress your career while making a meaningful impact. Read this blog to learn more about our unique Sales Academy programme in the UK.
We’re launching the 4th cohort of our Sales Academy, can you explain what the Sales Academy is?
The Sales Academy is a paid 9-month full-time programme where you get to learn from the best sales leaders in the industry. You will learn a proven sales playbook developed by Jeremy Duggan(opens new window), President, and Steve McCluskey(opens new window), Chief Revenue Officer, who have taken 5 companies to unicorn status - including Multiverse. By joining the Sales Academy, you will have the opportunity to grow your skills, your network and your future alongside driven colleagues - and have fun doing it!
This is an entry-level role for someone who is looking to kickstart their career or transition into sales. No previous sales experience is required, just a minimum of one year’s experience in any job role and the Right To Work in the UK.
What are the benefits of joining the Sales Academy?
You will start your sales career alongside a group of like-minded people and make friends along the way. It’s amazing to have a large network internally, including previous Sales Academy participants, who you can learn from and connect with.
You will be well-rewarded financially, whilst being able to learn from some of the best people in the game. Multiverse is really keen on career progression and if you are successful after the 9-month programme, you will be promoted to a permanent Commercial Account Executive role.
We have an amazing office culture! There are lots of social events and activities every week in our office, where you can mingle and have a fun time both within the Sales team and with the wider organisation.
Top tip: "It’s recommended that the Sales Academy team come in 3-4 days a week because it helps with our learning and it’s a great way to ask questions and socialise. However, it’s only required that we come in twice a week… but we love coming into the office!"
