Sr Director University Connect at Anaplan
We are creating a world-class University Connect Program. It’s a program where we help students in Universities and Colleges, adopt the Anaplan technology for use in their course work where they would normally use software such as Excel or Access. As problems become more complex, students need to arm themselves with the latest cutting-edge technologies to compete when they enter the workforce.
We have started to create a world-class team that will recruit the world’s leading Colleges and Universities.
We are talking to as many Universities and Colleges as we can, giving them access to our software for free and getting students to adopt our technology as their first choice when completing complex course work that requires sophisticated technology. We want to create a ground-swell of students that become incredible ambassadors for Anaplan both within their Universities and inside their employers when they enter the work force.
This means building a team that can identify and ‘sell’ into Universities, get students enrolled quickly into the program, get them trained and make it stick. It means you will have to be exceptional at guerilla marketing and thinking outside of the box to get a ground-swell at each University.
About the Role
The Head of University Connect is responsible for system-wide development and on-going management of Anaplan’s University Connect strategies, initiatives, policies and practices, and programs. In this role, the Senior Director of University Connect must partner effectively with Anaplan’s senior leadership, (ELT), team as well as the sales team who are also selling to Universities and Colleges to ensure alignment.
This is a highly strategic role that requires you to set strategy and vision for the group and lead a world-class team to execute on that strategy. As a business that is in high-growth mode, we need to train and certify thousands of students in the next few years. That takes planning, dedication, passion and execution. It means thinking big and bold and at scale. It takes the right people and of course the ideal leader. That’s where you come in.
You’ll be intimate with our Customer 1st initiative and what that means from a customer [student] experience point of view and how your organization helps us execute on that.
We are not trying to be second best. We are forging a path to be the leader in not just cloud-based planning and analytics, but the leader in customer service and experience, in every sense.
You’ll also connect our customers with the students emerging from University programs, hopefully giving our customers a steady flow of fully qualified students to help them with their own Anaplan Center of Excellence.
