Leah Verasammy – Senior Sales Consultant, 25
Leah started at Northfields in July 2013 after graduating from Canterbury University where she studied Theology. After graduating Leah applied to Northfields after a recommendation from her friend, who also works for the company and was very happy with the way her career was going.
Having had no experience in the industry before this was obviously a very daunting thing to do! For the first fortnight of her time at Northfields, Leah undertook our induction programme with our Training & Recruitment Manager, Charmaine Grant.
The training was undertaken outside of branch to ensure Leah would go into the working environment with the basic knowledge and skills required to perform as a Sales Consultant with minimum disruption to the office.
Our new recruits are instilled with our company values, our expectations of their work and full details of the general day-to-day life of a Sales Consultant. Leah says that this induction training was one of the most valuable things she had as it gave her the right start in her career and the confidence to really excel at her new job.
The thing that Leah loves most about her role is helping other people achieve their dreams for a new home, by understanding their needs and requirements and finding them the perfect property, which if you have ever moved house you will know isn’t an easy task! As a local resident of Pitshanger, Leah understands the attraction to the area and loves the fact that the company is so involved with the local community, sponsoring events such as ‘Party in the Park’ and ‘Light up the Lane’. This year Party in the Park is on 28th June, make sure you come over to our stall and say hello!
After 18 months of hard work and consistently hitting her targets Leah was promoted to Senior Sales Consultant and she accredits this to the on going training she received. The next step for Leah is working towards being the Assistant Branch Manager at our Pitshanger Lane office.
