Summary

An ambitious individual who enjoys taking on responsibility and has a successful background in sales. Having a smart appearance with impeccable personal hygiene and a relaxed sociable demeanour. Someone who enjoys spending time with clients & who is constantly looking for opportunities to build relationships with them. Time spent working within a busy sales team has taught me to be organised, work practically, and given me the required communication skills needed to make every client feel special.

I am comfortable in new situations and meeting new people, with a flexible approach to working evenings and weekends. I remain calm under pressure, whilst always optimistic and positive.

Skills

Sales

Working within a busy sales team, i have built up experience from many scenarios that have taught me how to deal with clients needs and expectations. Valuable sales experience includes:

  • Having a friendly demeanour and being able to create a comfortable atmosphere for clients 
  • Actively maintaining awareness and understanding of current relevant retail products
  • An excellent communicator with natural people skills
  • Up selling on specific products.
  • Possessing an enthusiastic friendly, and outgoing personality.
  • When necessary, being able to give in-depth technical advice about products.
Management

I have demonstrated useful practical management skills whilst working at a medium sized hotel in the French Alps. Such skills were developed by issues that could arise on a typical shift; a dispute with a customer or a member of staff, or even a technical issue involving the building itself.

IT

I am competent with a range of IT hardware and software, specifically Microsoft Office products used frequently in sales roles such as: Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint among others.

Interests

I have a keen interest in skiing, having skied in a number of different European resorts over the last 10 years and moving to France for the winter season of 2016/17. Alongside this i have a general enthusiasm for outdoor activities, summer and winter, including: hiking, climbing and canoeing, all of which help me to stay fit and active.

I play tennis at a local court during the summer, playing up to 3 times a week. I help out at the local Scout Group as a young leader, I also accompany them on Scout camps, leading walking groups and supervising activities.
