You’ll be the person who goes to see our existing and prospective clients, to understand their challenges and goals. You’ll put the ideas together for how we can partner to meet those challenges and then you’ll present the proposed solution to win the opportunity to make it our next new project.

Is that you? Then we want you to join the leading elearning company - and take us, and our clients, to further success.

To apply: Please send your CV, covering email and two examples of your writing to jobs@kineo.com

For the writing, ideally these will be proposals (or extracts from proposals) for elearning/LMS services that you’ve written. They could be internal proposals or documents that make a business case / call for action or investment. If you don’t have anything along those lines, then please provide an alternative example of persuasive writing/presentation material that you have developed.

We have on-going recruitment for this role and we'll be in touch to arrange an interview if your application is successful.

No agencies please.
