At SME Broker Services, our employees are what make this company such a great place to work. We consider ourselves a tightly-knit family of people of all walks of life, and we wanted to share what makes our employees special with an Employee Showcase feature series on our blog.
For today's Employee Showcase, we will be focusing on our very own office clown Abigail Clifton - Evans, a Senior Broker Executive here at SME Broker Services.
How would you describe yourself?
I would best describe myself as fun, ambitious and hard-working. I always try to spread a positive vibe, whether it be at home or at work.
What does your role at SME Broker Services entail?
My role at SME Broker Services is ‘Senior Broker Executive’ I love my job here! My roles include staying up to date with my pipe-line, generating new leads on a daily basis, keeping up good reports with all of my clients and most of all, making sure I am selling our products the best I can.
How did you first learn about the position at SME Broker Services, and how did you find the hiring process?
I was fortunate enough to have a sibling that already worked here. I was unhappy in my previous job, and after speaking with my sister about this, she insisted I applied for a current vacancy they had advertised here. I was quickly invited in for an interview, and I happily was offered the roll as Senior Broker Executive.
How has SME Broker Services helped you in your career development?
SME Broker Services has boosted my sales techniques massively, I have a love for sales, I like how exhilarating it can be. I knew that I had a passion for sales in my previous job, but I felt as if it wasn’t being recognised. Since being at SME Broker Services, I have been given all necessary training in order for me to reach my full potential. I have also been awarded employee of the month which assures me I am definitely being recognised for my hard work, which I believe is completely necessary for any employee. If they know they are appreciated, they will work even better and harder. I can’t wait for the future here and I hope that I only progress further within this business.
What has been your biggest accomplishment in both SME Broker Services and life in general?
My biggest accomplishment at SME Broker Services is my revenue. I have achieved making the business a lot of money which is key. In life, it has to be my daughter, she’s my biggest achievement. Keeping her happy and smiling daily keeps me happy and motivated every day.
What song makes you want to dance no matter where you are?
Becky Hill & Spectra-soul – Rude Love
If you were stranded on an island, what three things would you take and why?
Water, a music player of some sort and probably some sun cream. Water to stay hydrated of course, music because music just makes life better and sun cream because if I'm stranded I might as well get a tan while I'm at it.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m working on my lead generation, I feel as though I have a very good client base but making sure it is expanding regularly is something I am focusing my time on at this current time.
A quote or piece of advice you live by that you’d like to end on.
Life is toO short to be anything but happy! I think sometimes we all get so drawn in to work and life that we take every day we have for granted. The key is happiness after-all.
