Who we are

WPM Education is helping the further and higher education sectors redefine and transform the way they accept payment. Through unique sector knowledge and close collaboration, we can help institutions work smarter whilst delivering a better payment experience.

We have been working with the higher and further education sectors since 2001, helping them to transform the way they accept payments and providing them with a Payment Platform through which all their incoming online payments can be routed. There is huge growth potential within the UK higher education, further education and independent schools, and we are fully focused on adding value to existing clients

We are looking for an Account Manager to join our collaborative Business Development Team, with the unique opportunity to provide an innovative and strategically focused account management service. Our approach allows us to develop a deep understanding of our clients and build rapport and trust. Our aim is not to be seen as a supplier, but as a trusted partner who has the client’s best interests at heart.


At a high level, responsibilities will include;

  • Safeguarding and building revenues within your client base
  • Regular, proactive engagement with key influencers and decision makers
  • Developing strategic account plans that reflect drivers, barriers and opportunities
  • Realistic tracking of leads/opportunities
  • Consistently supporting clients to develop their own Payment Acceptance Strategy
Skills Range:

Knowledge of SaaS/Software or Professional Services Account Management is the best fit. This experienced role will involve spending time at our West Sussex office and planned client travel.

Person Specification:

With confidence you will support our clients to see their payments through a strategic lens and form a detailed understanding of their drivers, barriers and opportunities to build upon their own individual Payment Acceptance Strategy.

You will proactively engage in conversations with the right decision makers, and you will feel energised by taking responsibility for growing your accounts and transforming them.
