Work History

Work History

Sales Advisor

Apr 2015 - Present
Vodafone UK
During my time at Vodafone, I have experienced a variety of different tasks and scenarios that in my opinion have provided me with essential skills that benefit me today. As a store each individual is given monthly targets, this has made me driven, motivated and passionate to come to work, I thoroughly enjoyed this aspect of the job. The store was also given monthly targets which had to be met to ensure success for members of staff. Therefore this meant I have had to learn to strive as an individual however also as a team. I think this work ethic is very important and I plan to apply this to future job roles.
