This Christmas at The Apollo Group, we thought we’d dedicate our Christmas News Posts to telling you a little more about the small Team of dedicated Staff that run the day to day operations at Apollo HQ in Cardiff Bay and London.
Today, we chatted with Sarah, our Business Development Manager.
Tell us who you are, where you're from and what you did before joining the Company?
I'm Sarah and I'm from Cardiff, before joining the company I had been working as a self employed cleaner for the last 6 years.
What drew you to our Company?
My path has crossed many times with Chris and Jak on work projects leading to subcontracting on occasion. Its been lovely to see the company grow to the size it has.
What's your current role within the Company and have you always done that since joining?
I was offered an exciting opportunity to work at ApolloHQ as a Business Development Manager and be part of that growth that I’d seen over the past few years. I have a wealth of industry knowledge and although I still enjoy picking up my duster. Its an ideal opportunity to utilise my existing skills and expand them and fits fantastically around my other commitments.
What's the most unusual day you've had since joining the Company?
I cant really think of an unusual day as no two are ever exactly the same. Trying to balance a brilliant job whilst studying a degree brings its own unusual days but I’m excited with having the opportunities to do the things I’ve wanted to do and use the skills I have at Apollo Wales.
Where are you based and what Customers would be likely to contact you?
I'm based in ApolloHQ, Cardiff for two days a week and am mobile for the rest of the week to carry out new quotes, check in on existing customers and much more. I’m usually checking my emails in a coffee shop or calling the Office to catch up from my car so if you cant find me in person, you can always find me with technology!
What's the best part of your day when working at the Company?
Simple; Each time Chris and Jak have the confidence to entrust me with their Clients and let me help them grow the Company with them and make Apollo an even better Company for the Staff and its Clients.
