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 support.

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!
