Posted on: 2.2.2018

We interviewed Shannon on her new appointment.

Tell me about your new role at Atexor

I am Sales Operation Coordinator for the UK working as part of the Global Customer Care Team based in Finland. I will be processing quotations and submitting orders within the UK as well as performing a number of clerical tasks to ensure all UK operations run smoothly. In due course I will also be performing these tasks for international clients.

What relevant experience do you have?

I worked for Maclean Electrical in their Aberdeen and Great Yarmouth business units as a Sales Administrator and then progressed to Sales Buyer.  In doing so, I already possess a good knowledge of, not only the job role, but also the sector. I am going to be applying the same skills I acquired on this job to further expand my knowledge of the systems supplied by Atexor.

Why have you chosen to work with Atexor?

I saw this as a great opportunity to further expand my knowledge in a role I am passionate about as well as being part of a successful company. I really enjoy working in an office environment and know that working for Atexor will allow me to develop a career in a very prominent industry.

You have recently visited Atexor’s Headquarters in Finland for training, what did this involve?

I was in Finland for a week, meeting and getting to know the team there. I was shown around the headquarters and all the extensive facilities to extend my knowledge of Atexor, and familiarise myself with products, standards and accreditations. It was a great practical way   to obtain information and I am now confident in providing clients with the quality, knowledge and service Atexor prides itself on.

What do you bring to Atexor?

I have a real passion for the industry, I’m hard working and see myself as extremely self-motivated. I am constantly striving for improvement and have good interpersonal skills having always dealt with clients and customers in my previous roles.

How have you found your new appointment so far?

It has been a great experience, I have been made to feel very welcome as part of the team and feel settled already working in such a friendly environment. I am excited to progress and just feel privileged to have been offered the opportunity to join such a successful company.

As we expand, operating across international markets, our aim is to provide all new appointments at Atexor with the tools and training needed to carve a role, whilst supporting the company’s needs.

We are glad to have Shannon onboard and wish her the best of luck in her new job role.
