Business Development Support (UK)

Online Education Services (OES)

Online Education Services (OES) was established to challenge and advance the online education industry, providing a new student-centric approach to adult education. OES creates engaging online learning experiences for students who are not catered for by traditional campus-based offerings. Its services support partners to reach a new demographic of students across a broader range of national and international markets.

Formed out of the successful partnership with Swinburne University of Technology, which remains a key client partner in Australia, OES is 80% owned by SEEK LTD, a world-class product technology company with a market capitalisation of £3.5bn and exposure to 4.1bn people.

Following impressive success in Australia, OES is now expanding internationally to further leverage its successful model. Developing a UK business is a top priority.

The role:
Reporting to and supporting the newly appointed Managing Director (UK), the Business Development Support is a pivotal role in delivering long term vision and growth ambitions for OES in the UK.

The role is primarily responsible for supporting all business development activity to secure new University partnerships.

This is a varied and broad scoping role that will include:

  • Support the design and development of solutions for new partnerships.
  • Develop business development material including proposals, presentations, pitch documents and other bespoke materials to support discussions with prospective partners.
  • Undertake research and analysis into higher education and employment market trends.
  • Coordinate and produce tender and bid responses.
  • Manage the business development pipeline including identifying and researching prospective new Education provider clients and tender opportunities
  • Producing other sales focused communications including pitch documents, RFP, RFI and presentations, to support the acquisition of new partner university clients
  • Working with a range of internal stakeholders to source and collate information.

About you:
You will demonstrate a track record of supporting business development activities that has led to securing new business, including tender and bid processes. You should be comfortable working autonomously, whilst benefiting from the great backing and support from the team in Australia. As such, a proven ability to develop effective working relationships across a range of stakeholders is a key requirement. Experience in the tertiary education sector will be highly regarded.

Initiative, curiosity and someone who will enjoy the challenges of an agile and fast-paced start-up, are also vital to success in this role.
