Jamie Smith is now working in our Internal Sales department and has already had a successful first week!
Jamie graduated from Hull University with a first-class degree in Criminology. The focus of Jamie’s dissertation was the Grenfell Tower disaster, which is an extremely poignant topic within our industry as this has led to a recent change in legislation surrounding external building materials (you can read more about this change here).
Both the care sector and criminal justice sector make up Jamie’s working background, so being people-oriented and an effective communicator will definitely help him out in his new role here at Neaco.
Jamie says, “so far I have massively enjoyed my time at Neaco. The office culture and dynamics have made me feel as though I am part of the team from day one. I have been given constant support and direction and everyone is lovely, helping me to settle in and develop”.
When asked what he thought of the company, Jamie added “learning about the products in detail has reinforced my decision to choose Neaco as an employer. They provide unrivalled products that not only meet, but go far beyond regulatory standards and, due to my academic background, this is something I am very passionate about”.
Neaco Sales Manager, Katrina Chalupka says “I’m looking forward to helping Jamie advance his career and think that his positive attitude and enthusiasm for the industry will ensure that he is very successful here at Neaco.”
The aim for Jamie is to develop his sales skills, with the help of the company, and to become a pivotal member of the team. We think that Jamie is already settling into the role well and have very positive expectations for his future here!
He also brought cake into the office during his first week so what more could we ask for?!
