Name: Kitty Culshaw
Job Title: Preston Sales Manager
Relevant training and qualifications: I started with no experience in managing or sales, I was half way through a hair dressing apprenticeship and wanted a change. I worked hard and progressed through the business to where I am now.
How long have you worked for Halo: It will be three years in May 2022
A brief description of your job role: Working closely with the other managers and directors, I ensure monthly sales targets are met using a number of methods. This can range from delivering training to new staff members to coaching our experienced agents to maintain company standards and develop existing skill-sets. I ensure staff are motivated and enjoy their working environment with exciting incentives, the generous commission structure or career progression. I deliver briefs daily to the room to feedback overall performance and organise buzz sessions/games to keep staff engaged.
What was your background before The Halo Tech Group: I went to university, but didn’t enjoy it so I tried something more hands on, so I did a hairdressing apprenticeship but again didn’t enjoy that.
What do you enjoy most about working at Halo: I love the opportunities within the business to grow & progress. Me myself, I started with no experience, after leaving a hairdressing apprenticeship, I trained on the job and instantly fell in love with sales, the people and the business. I worked hard and got rewarded for this going from sales agent to team leader to now the sales manager of all The Preston staff. I never really had any talents I just knew I was good with people and I just love where it has got me.
There is nothing better for me either than when I see my team on the salesfloor push for a target, over achieve and be rewarded for all their hard work. Incentives are frequent as we have a work-hard play-hard mentality and it’s good to be a part of it.
What is a typical day like at Halo: It’s hard to put your finger on what a typical day would be like! I would describe it as fast paced, focused and enjoyable. As much as we always do something new and every day is different ,the one thing that doesn’t change is we enjoy what we do.
What hours do you work: Monday to Friday 9am – 5.30pm
