Susan Clarke
Sales Co-ordinator

Take us through a typical day at Bailey for you…

The day starts with checking my inboxes – and there are three of them!  First coffee, while checking how many dictations from the sales team have hatched overnight. Multi-tasking while taking phone calls – can I squeeze in another coffee?  Attending meetings and taking minutes as required. Then I check items one and two again. Fix the coffee machine. I’m also the person who sends out the quotes, keeps the records straight, and oils the wheels for the rest of the Sales Team.

What’s your favourite thing about working for Bailey?

The team spirit, and the free lunches are an added extra.

 What’s the most challenging aspect of your job and how do you overcome it?

Prioritising. Everybody’s job is more important than the one you’re in the middle of. Stephen Covey’s time management matrix works (in principle anyway)!

What advice would you give to someone who would like to work as a Sales Co-ordinatorr

Be extremely flexible – if you can’t be flexible this isn’t the job for you!

What three words would you use to describe the company?

Fast moving

Do you have any nicknames? What is it?

No. Thankfully

If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Probably tender steak and chips, with peppercorn sauce, petit pois, baby leaf salad and a glass of wine!

If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring?

1.    Something to do/somebody to talk to
2.    Spider repellant
3.    Aladdin’s lamp!

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Entertain family and friends – I love cooking.

What is on your bucket list?

To sit down and write a bucket list!

If you were given a choice, where in the world would you like to go? 

It would have to be a tour, I want to see so many places – warm but not too hot please!
