• Use existing Learning Pool colleague knowledge and introductions to develop positive personal relationships with key contacts in each partner
• Lead the execution of the agreed strategy with the support of a virtual team across the business
• Enable and support partners to maximise their success with Learning Pool’s unique propositions, providing useful feedback to product management and commercial functions
• Deliver timely contract renewals where all opportunities to generate incremental revenues have been fully explored
• Maximise the opportunity to deliver high quality partner and end customer case studies
• Make full use of the company’s CRM platform (Salesforce) to ensure this is up to date at all times with opportunities and partner information
• Report progress against the strategy regularly to the business and through to the board of directors

• At least two years of experience and responsibility for indirect channel management in a B2B software environment
• Working knowledge of a range of channel management, incentivisation and forecasting methods that will span Learning Pool’s partners and our own direct sales team
• Willingness to travel regularly on a global basis
• Commercially driven and strategically focussed with a proven track record of meeting stretching targets
• Exceptional organisational skills and keen attention to detail
• Strong communication, interpersonal and presentational skills with aptitude in identifying and building influential relationships
• Impeccable integrity, work ethic and personal values aligned to Learning Pool’s (We’ve Got Your Back, Let’s Build to Grow, Do The Right Thing)
