    Personal Statement:

    I am a highly motivated, resourceful and intelligent individual and aim to resolve all

    challenges that may arise. I have developed a wide range of experience from my

    training as a joiner to selling building products in a warehouse environment to

    management and most recently as a sales representative.  

    I feel that I am able to adapt myself to any situation and I am suitable in many roles.

    However, I believe my greatest strength lies within my sales and customer

    communication abilities.  I have always strived to learn and evolve throughout my

    employment history taking in as many benefits and experiences as possible so that I

    am a greater asset to my future employer.

    I have been employed in sales for the previous nineteen years and have experience selling a wide range of products and understand the importance of product knowledge. I have experience working with a wide range of clients and catering to their different needs. Throughout my time in sales I have learnt the importance of listening to ensure the customers’ needs are met and most importantly that they feel understood. I have also evaluated and reviewed my success in order to improve and do this regularly to ensure I achieve daily, weekly and monthly targets.  I have competent computer and written skills in order to be able to record essential paperwork in relation to customer details and finance.

    I have attended training in 'REACH', the importance of the choice of vocabulary on positive and negative associations customers may have and how to influence and persuade. I am motivated and enthusiastic, working effectively within a team and as an individual. I currently work nights, weekends and bank holidays.
