With a new financial year underway, OrderWise have recruited new staff into a number of departments to help the company as it continues to expand over the coming twelve months and beyond. This new intake sees a mixture of roles being filled throughout OrderWise with the focus yet again on improving and enhancing the infrastructure and resources available to our customers.
The first three weeks of their employment required them to learn how to use OrderWise as well as taking part in activities within our warehouse training facility, helping to ensure the real life application of the software was fully understood. This intensive training was also interspersed with assessments of their knowledge and progress to ensure benchmark understanding was being achieved.
With a few weeks behind them since the initial training was completed, each new staff member has begun settling into their job role and started the second stage of training in their respective departments.
Joining the OrderWise team are:
Role: Software Tester
Having finished his studies of games computing at the University of Lincoln, Simon has spent the last year and a half working at Currys in Lincoln, where he gained an understanding of stock control in a warehouse environment. It is this combined knowledge and experience that makes him an ideal addition to the OrderWise Testing & Development Department. When he’s not testing, Simon enjoys getting active by regularly biking and climbing, as well as practicing parkour and a variety of martial arts. Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are his specialties so his fellow testers may want to keep his coffee cup topped up!
Role: Software Tester
Also joining the testing team is Rob, who graduated from Nottingham Trent University having studied Web Design as part of his degree in Multimedia Technology. Since then, Rob has worked for a mail order car parts supplier where he gained a valuable insight into the day-to-day running of an online business. This understanding has assisted him well in his new role and he hopes in the future it will help him to become an expert on the OrderWise eCommerce Module. In his spare time, Rob enjoys gaming as well as a diverse range of sports and socialising with his friends and family.
Role: Marketing Consultant
The latest addition to the OrderWise Team of the Year is Karl, who studied Journalism at the University of Lincoln before working at Lincoln Sony Centre as part of the sales team. This background in retail, coupled with the fact he has spent the last year working for an online marketing company, has helped Karl to quickly settle in to his role within OrderWise where he hopes he can help the department as it continues to grow. Outside of work, Karl has a strong passion for music, regularly blogging on new music and attending gigs and festivals. He also enjoys watching all kinds of sport and world cinema.
Role: Sales Consultant
After running her own coaching and training business for ten years, Claire briefly worked as Corporate Account Manager for a local software company before being snapped up by OrderWise. Her previous experience working for a software company has helped to prepare her for her role within the OrderWise Sales team. In her spare time Claire likes to unlock her inner Latina, currently learning flamenco dancing and how to speak Spanish. In addition to this she is also getting ready to accompany her friend in a rally car, riding along as his co-driver – don’t forget to wear a helmet Claire!
Role: Technical Support Advisor
Jack joins the OrderWise Support team having worked at BT for two years in their Business Support Department. By helping business clients with their telecommunication needs, Jack was able to gain invaluable customer relation skills that will serve him well as he begins to assist OrderWise customers in using our software. In his spare time, Jack enjoys going to the gym, keeping up to date with technology and pursuing his keen interest in photography. Rock maybe Jack’s music of choice, however he also enjoys all kinds of different music, revealing that he is a self-confessed admirer of classic 80’s band Spandau Ballet and is hoping a reunion show is just around the corner.
I am sure you will join us all here at OrderWise in welcoming our new staff to the OrderWise Family and wish them the very best in their new roles.
