Since returning from the United Kingdom I have spent the past 16 months in an account
management role which I believe has played well to my strengths. I am motivated by delivering
solutions and relationship building and during this time I have ensured excellent account retention,
growth of my sales portfolio and also placed in the top 3 of my department on a recent new business
Prior to sales my roles were predominantly customer service based, including 4 years working in a call
centre. In almost all roles I have been elevated to a senior level within my team and I have proven to
be a reliable employee, having not worked anywhere for less than 2 years.
I am seeking employment with a company that will allow me to develop my passion for sales with
both ongoing training and progression opportunities within the organisation, who will in turn reap the
rewards I know I will deliver.
