International Dyslexia Learning Solutions (IDL) is a unique, specialist intervention software program that is proven to be highly effective for improving reading and spelling for all ages.

As an Interventions Advisor, you will be joining the exciting IDL Team to be responsible for offering advice, guidance, and support to new and existing customers on our products and services. By providing outstanding customer service you will act as a key contact point for all customers to provide support and identify opportunities for sales growth to maximise income.

We are looking for enthusiastic individuals with excellent communication skills who would feel comfortable presenting our products to teaching staff, have excellent project management skills, be target driven, have a positive attitude to change, be organised, and demonstrate a commitment to a high standard of customer service. The ideal candidate should be able to present in a calm and personable manner and possess a high level of organisational skills.

You will need to be able to travel with overnight stays in order to visit new customers and build saturation in a designated area.

  • commitment to a high standard of customer service 
  • Excellent project management skills 
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Proven ability to work both independently and as a member of a team effectively
