Hello Jack! Tell us a bit about your role at Growth Engineering.
As the Sales Scout, it’s my job to generate new business. I work closely with the rest of the sales team and our in-house marketing crew to find companies in need of an engaging LMS. I spend most days communicating with prospective customers about how our Academy LMS and other products can help them. My goal is to find out how we can work together to create engaging training and achieve great business results.
What drew you to work at Growth Engineering?
Before joining Growth Engineering, I was running a small claims and Personal Payment Insurance (PPI) company. It was a good experience as I helped over 600 clients get money back for themselves whilst participating in some other claims processes as well.
After doing this for a while, I was looking for another selling position where I could make a difference. The opportunity to learn a new type of sales role drew me to Growth Engineering. I also liked the office location because it means I can work closer to London.
What do you find most rewarding about your current role?
I like being involved in different projects and working with different teams. What I enjoy most is meeting our clients as it’s always interesting to see how their businesses work from the inside. Every business is different and comes with its own unique challenges. It’s good to see how we can come in and help them.
What would be your advice to anyone starting a new role in 2018?
I would say the most important thing is the ability to be a good learner. I like to write a lot of notes! Try and be a sponge and be adaptable to whatever situation is thrown at you. Soak up as much information as possible.
What is your learning goal for 2018?
Sales is about what you can produce yourself through hard work and determination. So my goal for this year is to stick at what I’m doing right now and keep improving!
