Job Summary 

The Red & Yellow Brand is well-loved and well-known within the South African marketing and advertising community and following its recent acquisition by Honoris United Universities (the first and largest pan-African university network), it is now set to radically ramp up its presence and activity within South Africa and expand through the Honoris network across the continent.

This is a really exciting opportunity to work with a vibrant, growing commercial team – alongside our marketers, learning designers and programme managers – to consult with and support new and existing corporate clients in tackling their internal training and development needs, ensuring that their people - and their businesses - continue to grow and thrive in an ever-changing world.

The Digital Era is disrupting the way we work and live, and presenting businesses with complex new challenges - and exciting new opportunities, but this requires new skills and new mindsets. The companies with the most future-fit people will be the ones that win, and we play a critical role in partnering with our clients to develop their teams.

This is very much a sales role. You will be responsible for identifying and developing relationships with new clients, helping them analyse their challenges and needs, and working with them to develop and deliver cutting edge training solutions that address them. These solutions will require you to stretch your complex problem-solving brain, and tap into your creativity and lateral-thinking abilities.

We believe in building lifelong relationships with our top tier clients, and you will play a critical role in delivering on this.
