Regional Sales Manager

Regional Sales Manager
EF College Study Tours
Cambridge, MA

The role

At EF College Study Tours, we partner with faculty and their colleges to create faculty-led study abroad programs for their students. In addition to developing an experience that inspires and changes the lives of students, you’ll own and drive your own book of business.  Primary responsibilities include:

  • Growing your regional territory
  • Creatively initiating new ways to find and build new partnerships
  • Thriving in a fast-paced sales environment
  • Hitting weekly, monthly and quarterly targets
  • Influencing and motivating customers and other stakeholders

The Program Coordinator represents EF with professors, administrators, and other stakeholders. Based in Cambridge and working primarily via phone and email, you will carry out a strategic approach to outbound prospecting and inbound lead response—inspiring professors to lead students abroad, understanding what motivates and challenges them, and consulting on how to create and execute successful programs. You must be able to rapidly spot exciting opportunities, pursue them with tact and persistence, and collaborate with customers, key stakeholders within their organizations, and your internal team to drive results and guide our partners to remarkable experiences abroad with their students. Success requires you to form strong relationships and to maintain contact and consistency throughout a sales cycle that can between six months and two years from planning to travel.  Your performance will be measured by your ability to generate high-quality new opportunities, and by your territory’s overall success and growth.
