Senior Sales/Deputy Store Manager
I started working for T-Mobile as a sales advisor and progressed to senior sales then also managed the store. My duties involved running the store on a day to day basis as we had no store manager, my main duties were to arrange the store, arrange the rotas, stock replenishing, stock counts, dealing with all customer service issues and was also the business sales advisor. I am proud to state that due to my hard effort and having the correct people management skills we were performing in-line with the busiest stores in the area, which are MANCHESTER ARNDALE and THE TRAFFORD CENTRE, My store was also the number 1 performing store in the country last Christmas for 2 consecutive weeks, baring in mind Blackburn is a small town and we had to compete with big city stores. I also was part o f a team which were responsible for new store openings in out area.
In April of this year I handed T-Mobile my resignation due to personal reasons.
April 2005-Present: THE PHONE MARKET, BLACKBURN
The phone market is a small chain of retail outlets, my main task here is to increase sales and
train staff, when I started with the company they were processing approximately 40 post-pay per month, within 6 months the company now exceeds 90+ post-pay per month.
I have a variety of interests in the sporting sector, which occupies majority of my free time, such as playing football in the local league and attending the gym weekly. I also do a lot of voluntary work with youth organisations.
I possess the skills to work solitarily but highly benefit from working in a team and with the public as I am an excellent listener who is able to contribute towards discussions as well as make constructive criticism. I have an impressive understanding and knowledge of many products that are on today’s market. I am searching for a job which will allow me to demonstrate my interpersonal skills within a team effectively. However above all, I always enjoy a new challenge.
My objective is to develop a career in which I am given the highest level of training and support with which I can achieve promotion after promotion.
I believe that nothing in life is difficult. There are two attributes that are needed to achieve any goal these are DEDICATION and DETERMINATION.
