Similar to an account manager role, focused on partner-client development and management.
We are looking for a Key Partner Manager, and it could be you! First, let’s work out if we’re a good match for you.
Learning never stops, the finish line is never crossed. We have the goal of helping learners from all corners of the earth to achieve the career of their dreams. Our goal is to provide learners the same quality of learning from the foundation phase and then guide them on their way to a career, or vocation for the jobs of tomorrow referred to as the fourth industrial revolution. The schooling system has had very little change in the last 100 years and still educates learners in a factory type fashion, each with their own desk in rows. The work of tomorrow is about technology, collaboration, innovation and entrepreneurship. The Advantage Learn class of tomorrow will be enriched not only with teaching but career guidance and opportunities through our collaboration with tertiary education providers and companies who want to invest in the workforce of tomorrow.
We have a hard-working and diverse team, young and old, with a wide range of interests including running, music, surfing, food, video gaming, travelling, beer, hiking, languages and obviously learning! Although most of us are in Durban (SA), we are a digital-first company with people working remotely as well as in-office, and our time together is always fun.
(As it relates to a Key Partner Manager)
Although we are our own biggest client, we work with multiple external clients as well. We don’t look at these relationships through the lens of supplier-to-client but rather that we are their digital education partners. We provide these partners with solutions related to but not limited to: Digital platforms, user-engagement, learning design and support.
The projects are almost always related to impactful digital education projects and propose exciting new challenges. Partner managers need to be involved in operational management and support, partner management and engagement, solution development and business development.
The primary responsibility of a partner manager is ensuring partner satisfaction, ensuring their projects are always moving forwards. We are a small team trying to achieve a lot, meaning that good communication, collaboration and process are key components of our daily work.
Key partner managers work in a small but effective team within the Solutions & Technology division of Advantage Learn. This division is led by the CTO and designs, develops and manages the digital learning platforms and products used by the partner clients, which is why the key partner manager is such a critical role in this team.
