Please note you’ll have to be permanently based in the UK to apply for this role.

We are Multiverse, a tech startup with a social mission. We’re building an outstanding alternative to university and corporate training, to develop a diverse group of future leaders. Our impact focuses on three core areas: measuring potential beyond academics, delivering world-class job-focused training via applied learning, and helping diverse groups of young people build social capital through a thriving community.

We are one of the fastest-growing businesses in Europe and also rapidly expanding in North America, working with over 300 clients including Facebook, Morgan Stanley, KPMG, Kantar, Citi, and Microsoft.

We started 2021 with the UK’s largest-ever EdTech funding round - a $44m Series B. Since then we’ve opened our New York office, and been awarded “Outstanding” by OFSTED (the UK government’s education regulator) across every category. In September 2021, we broke the funding record again with a $130m Series C raise.

We are looking for exceptional people to join us as we create something genuinely radical that will replace the way people think about accessing careers and how they learn.

Requirements

Multiverse is a tech startup on a mission. We’re tearing down a broken system and building an outstanding alternative to university and corporate training.

Our professional apprenticeships open up many career opportunities for young adults and those looking to upskill – all while helping businesses embrace digital transformation and build a truly diverse talent pipeline.

At Multiverse, we measure potential beyond academic results. Working closely with community partners, we reach candidates from underrepresented backgrounds – building a route to the boardroom for a diverse group of future leaders.

Already one of the fastest-growing startups in Europe, we recently landed in the US too. Now working with more than 300 companies – including Facebook, Morgan Stanley and Microsoft – we’re looking for fresh talent to take us to the next level.

Here, you’ll be part of something bigger. Unlocking opportunities for all, you’ll help solve some of society’s most pressing issues, be empowered by those around you, and never stop growing your skills.

The Sales Internship role

  • This is an amazing opportunity to kickstart a career in sales that’s rewarding in every sense of the word.
  • We’re looking for exceptional people to join our six-month academy. Those who are successful will be offered a permanent, full-time job.

You’ll earn £27,000 per annum during the internship. Upon completion, you’ll move up to a base salary of £35,000 – with the potential to double that by hitting targets.

What you’ll be doing

In this entry-level sales role, you’ll develop our existing accounts and – most importantly – build a pipeline of new ones. We’re already working with exciting startups like Just Eat and Starling, plus established giants like Google and KPMG. Who will you add to the list?

You’ll be given all the tools you need to thrive. Interns learn from a world-class sales playbook developed by Jeremy Duggan and Steve McCluskey. These industry leaders share an impressive track record of taking three tech companies to billion-dollar valuations. Most recently, they took AppDynamics from $100 million to $3.7 billion in just four-and-a-half years.

The playbook is key. From planning against sales targets to prospecting and qualifying opportunities, to understanding business problems and finding just the right solution – it covers it all. On top of this, you’ll be given plenty of support.

Core to our culture within Go To Market at Multiverse is developing high potential individuals to become the top operators in our industry, who will go onto lead important organisations. This will include fundamental sales training, weekly 1:1 coaching sessions and quarterly reviews from established sales maestros.

This is your chance to carve out a career at one of the UK’s hottest, young companies - that has now gone global. Here, you’ll grow your skills, your network and your future alongside driven colleagues – and have fun doing it. Together, we’re empowering a diverse group of future leaders. Join us.

About you

You may not have sales experience, but you will have a track record of making the most of every opportunity you’re given.

Perhaps you’ve achieved a high level in sports, the arts, or another hobby. Maybe you’ve made a positive impact in your community, topped your class, or turned a side hustle into something BIG. Whatever it is, you’ll be an outstanding individual determined to get the most out of your talent.

We’re not going to lie, sales can be full-on. But that’s why we love it. So you’ll be someone who thrives under pressure and feeds off the buzz. Someone who isn’t afraid to put themselves out there, pick up the phone, and make things happen. Building relationships should come easy to you – and you’ll love connecting with people.

Most importantly, you’ll be driven to learn and exceed expectations. Passionate about social mobility, you’ll be eager to carve out a career in sales and help Multiverse achieve its mission.

You must be available to start on the 4th April 2022 on a full-time basis and be based permanently in the UK with the Right to Work. Unfortunately, we don’t offer sponsorship.

This will never change.

Covid-19 and hiring

As we navigate through this pandemic together, we want to reassure you that keeping candidates and our employees safe is of paramount importance to us. That’s why the entire recruitment process will take place remotely, using phone and video calls (usually zoom). For successful candidates who end up being hired, we always ensure a safe, engaging and (for the time being) a remote onboarding experience. We also take care to make sure all of your equipment will be sent to you by courier, so you are ready for your first day.

Safeguarding

All posts in Multiverse involve some degree of responsibility for safeguarding. Successful applicants are required to complete a Disclosure Form from the Disclosure and Barring Service (“DBS”) for the position. Failure to declare any convictions (that are not subject to DBS filtering) may disqualify a candidate for appointment or result in summary dismissal if the discrepancy comes to light subsequently
