Facebook Regional Lead, GAT Academy in London, United Kingdom
Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities — we're just getting started.
The Global Accounts Team (GAT) partners with the world’s largest brand marketers and their agencies to maximize the business and brand-building potential of the Facebook platform. A successful partnership with these global advertisers depends on our teams’ ability to help them continuously maximize the value and business impact they extract from their investments with Facebook. It requires us to drive excellence in every interaction and against every dollar spent, but we often fall short.
Finding and understanding how to drive excellence is complex and difficult to solve – who does it best, what are they doing and how can I learn more? The answers to these questions and building blocks toward successful global partnerships exist in the historical learnings, thought leadership and daily innovation of our GAT teams. It’s often scattered, however, in pockets across different accounts, geographies and cross-functional partners. Identifying and scaling this best practice and thought leadership would accelerate new global partnerships and help redefine the potential of existing.
Imagine for a moment a team whose mission it was to define what “best” looks like for global partnership success. A center of excellence, if you will, that acts as an engine for scaling partnership excellence across all teams working on global accounts within Facebook. A team that would canvas the globe for best practices, deconstructing and packaging them up for infusion across the sales organization through inspirational content, training and consultation. All of this becomes possible through the new GAT Academy.
We are looking for a Regional Lead, reporting to the Global Academy Head based in London. This is your chance to establish yourself as a living “center of excellence”, coach and consultant to current and future leaders of our organization!
As a global center of excellence, the GAT Academy is internally focused on equipping all FB teams who manage global partnerships with the best relationship-building strategies, narratives, tools and solutions. The audience includes not only those teams managing GAT accounts, but also our largest locally-led global accounts within our Global Sales Team.
