It’s been a busy 2018 so far here at MetaCompliance, with the introduction of several fresh faces to the team. Due to continued growth, additional staff were required across the company in various departments to help achieve our goal in developing our worldwide sales and market presence.
In the space of three months we have grown substantially, hiring over 20 people. In the coming weeks we will be introducing you to the latest team members, so let’s get to know the latest Compliancers a little bit better.
Sales Development Representative
Amy is a graduate of Ulster University, with a Bachelor of Arts – BA, English with Psychology.
Formerly Amy was a Technical Support Analyst in Allstate NI. “This is where I gained most of my telephone-based experience. I then moved up within my role to Hardware support where I dealt directly with all computer issues hardware and software related. I then moved on to becoming a Customer Service Advisor in Santander.”
“My new job role entails having a thorough understanding of MetaCompliance’s, award winning Integrated Cloud Based Awareness Platform and information Security Awareness. This then allows me to contact various organisations and businesses to convey the importance and value of what we have to offer and potentially secure a meeting for our Enterprise Sales Team. This role is very competitive, and target driven, which allows me to push myself further in order to do well within the company with a lot of opportunities to progress.”
An interesting fact about Amy? She has a vast, somewhat unhealthy, knowledge of all things Harry Potter related.
