Come shape the future of education with us.

At Compass, we love working with schools and strive to deliver new innovations, functions, and process improvements as new technology becomes available. Our services are specifically designed to improve not only the school process but also community culture and student learning outcomes.

Compass is a product that genuinely provides students, teachers, and parents with an improved educational experience. You can leave at the end of each day knowing you made a difference to a student's education or helped make a staff member’s day just that little bit better.


Here’s why we need you…

You’re here to help us grow in NSW!

This is a very important role within our fabulous & fun Acquisitions Team at the Compass Sydney office. With over 10 years serving the Australian education sector, Compass is well known and loved amongst K-12 schools and we need you to help drive further success.

With your passion, energy and savvy sales acumen, you’ll spend your days building and driving conversations within the Government & Independent sector. Your core mission is to learn about school challenges and articulate how Compass solutions can help teachers, administrators and school leaders focus on the important stuff - enabling schools to drive increased parent engagement, spend less time on administration and more time delivering great learning experiences.

You will deliver engaging product demonstrations (in person and virtually), work with various stakeholders across schools whilst partnering internally with our Customer Success team to ensure the best school experience for our prospective schools. 

Responsibilities and duties:

  • Meet or exceed quarterly and annual revenue targets for new business.  
  • Generate new business opportunities from both incoming leads and targeted outbound lead generation (prospect to purchase).
  • Proficient CRM usage across Pipeline management including documenting, tracking and following up on all active opportunities.
  • Develop, present and maintain an active Territory Plan, which is execution focused.
  • Work with Marketing to ensure that our messaging in market and the supporting campaigns are driving the required engagement. 
  • Ability to lead and align virtual teams, and the coordination of complex bid processes, requiring effective internal and external executive engagements. 
  • Ability to work with multiple stakeholders, understanding pain points, creating value, which drives measurable benefits, while instilling confidence that Compass is a partner of choice.
  • Keep up to date on the Compass product and participate in regular training & informational sessions. 
  • Support and attend local and national marketing events. 
  • Collaborate with the Onboarding and Training Team to bring new Customers onto the Compass Platform quickly and efficiently. 
  • Ad hoc tasks as requested by your manager.

This is what you’ll bring…

Ideally, you’ve been selling to the education sector for some time and understand how schools run. You’re in sales; but, don’t “sell”. You consult. You help. You genuinely have your client’s best interest at heart. You love what you do and are keen to join a sales team who help & support each other.

Your ability to easily connect with people, lead and manage client opportunities and your fun, open & ‘team first’ attitude will serve you well in this role.

If this sounds like you, we can’t wait to meet you!


What’s in it for you?

  • We come together with our unique strengths to work towards a common purpose - shaping the future of education. When you join our team, you will collaborate with individuals who are passionate, driven, and open to embracing change in a fast-paced environment.
  • A flexible working culture.
