I believe that being a team player and having an innovative approach is what makes someone successful here
The fact that we are making a difference to people and helping them in their careers. When I interviewed with Lifetime there was also a strong sense of teamwork and buzz in the Sales department that attracted me too.
The people are great, from top management down. Everyone supports each other.
I joined as a Senior Administrator and was promoted to Sales Support Team Leader after six months where I started by managing a team of four which quickly grew to eight staff. I was then promoted to Sales Support Manager taking on line management of our Quality Assessor and Campaign Exec.
I will soon be moving into the Telesales Manager role to cover my Manager whilst she is on maternity leave.
Lifetime is a company which constantly changes so the biggest challenge is ensuring that the teams I manage are fully up to date and always one step ahead.
I believe that having a great attitude to work, being a team player and having an innovative approach is what makes someone successful here. Lifetime is a company that really value its employees and promote employee development so it’s a great place to move up the career ladder.
My managers and fellow colleagues have always supported me in my development. Lifetime is the first company that I have worked for where they promote monthly 1-2-1s as well as in-depth yearly appraisals focused around individual development. This makes a big difference in feeling supported.
It is a very fast paced environment and every day has a different challenge to overcome but that’s what makes the work exciting.
People are at the forefront of everything that we do in Lifetime, whether it is ensuring that our learners have the best possible training experience or making sure that staff feel valued and supported.
Everyone works together to achieve goals, which can be quite rare in a sales/target driven environment. Lifetime also recognize the importance of staff having pride in their work and feeling valued, and this always appears to be considered in any decisions.
It is the only company I have worked in where anyone, no matter what job title, can have direct contact with the Senior Exec Team.
Go for it, it’s a great company!
