Our success stories: David Rider

Name: David Rider

Job title: Sales Consultant (Novus)

How long have you worked for the Novus sales team?

I joined the Novus sales team almost two years, straight out of university.

Why did you decide to join Capita's Novus team?

Once I graduated from university I was looking for a career where there was potential for the future both in terms of personal growth and career development, and I felt Capita's Novus programme could provide what I was looking for.

What has been the highlight of your time with the Novus team?

My highlight would be working with my first client. From my first meeting with them through to continuing to work with them now, it has been not only great fun but also very educational.

What promotions have you received during your time with the Novus team?

Whilst working within the Novus team, I have moved from a more lead generation function to junior sales to a senior sales role. I am now transitioning to a principal consultant role and am currently mentoring a member of our lead generation team in their junior sales role.

How has this affected your life outside of work?

The role has given me a lot of opportunities both inside and outside of work. I've been able to see many cities and travel a lot which I wasn't able to do before. I've also been able to afford to move out and am currently learning to fly.

What would you say to someone who is considering joining the Novus sales team?

If I was able to give advice to anyone joining the Novus sales team I'd say to keep working as hard as you can. The thing I love about sales is that I am trusted to run my desk as my own business, and in return I work hard and enjoy what I do.
