Charlotte Swift, Sales Executive - Branch
I'd been a stay-at-home mum of two children. After doing some
studies with the Open University I decided to apply for a
sales/admin assistant role at my local Jewson Branch in Castleford,
West Yorkshire. I wasn't offered that role, but I was brought back
for a second interview for the position of Sales Executive Trainee,
which I was appointed.
As part of my induction I had a year of product and sales
training which was very enjoyable and informative, it also helped
me expand my capabilities and myself as a person. The training team
were always on hand if I had any issues or needed extra
I completed my training in June 2010 and shortly afterwards
relocated 150 miles to Flitwick in Bedfordshire. The move was a
personal choice and was an easy process. Since moving I've
performed well, ranking as 25th Sales Executive and I'm now
striving to get into the top 20!
