Internal Sales Support Assistant

Name: Cassie Steiger Brand: Marley Alutec 
Role: Internal Sales Support Assistant    Location: Bedford

I’ve worked here for just over six years and would recommend working here; it’s a family atmosphere and I’m happy when I come to work.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

The thing that I enjoy the most is the atmosphere, the people, the minute I walked through the door the people were so friendly and welcoming, everybody is very hard working and ambitious and we all help each other out. 

What's it like working at Aliaxis?

It ticks a lot of boxes for me, the competitive salary, the company benefits, and the fact that they’re market leaders in what they do is a big thing for me, I wanted to work for a company that was the best at what they do. The benefits that we receive, a pension, childcare, vouchers which are really helpful for me, the fact that we get together and socialise, social events are important for me, it just helps morale. I’ve worked here for just over six years, I would recommend working here like I say it’s a family atmosphere and I’m happy when I come to work. 

The business has grown quite a lot since I first started working here, especially internal sales, we’ve got a lot more responsibility.

Are there opportunities for progression at Aliaxis?

I’ve seen people progress through the business, I’ve seen someone from the warehouse come and work for technical services departments, I’ve seen a member of internal sales get an area manager job out on the road, yeah you can progress here.

Is there much training and support provided?

I’ve recently had a sales training course which really benefited everyone in the office, it’s given us more confidence to negotiate and to speak to people on a higher level. We’ve had project training, I’m due to go into the technical office soon to get more technical training which will really help me in my role.

In internal sales we work really closely with all the area sales managers, we get two per person in the office, we do a lot of research for them, provide them with leads, chase estimates, negotiate discounts and I really feel it helps them when they’re out on the road.
