Jenna Wild

Job title: Senior Business Development Manager

How long have you worked for the Novus sales team? 

Just over 2 years 
Why did you decide to join Capita's Novus team? 

On paper, I liked the idea of working for a company that would give me the support and opportunity to learn and grow within the business world – particularly as I didn't have any commercial experience prior to joining Capita. Once I visited Capita for my interview, I immediately wanted to work here due to how friendly and welcoming the people were. The Novus team who I am surrounded by on a day to day basis are great – I couldn’t ask for better colleagues! 
What has been the highlight of your time with the Novus team? 

I enjoy that my role gives me the opportunity to meet a wide range of clients from different companies all over the country. The highlight of working in this role is that no day is the same – I am regularly travelling around different parts of the country to discuss The Novus Programme with potential clients and even when I'm in the office with my team, there is never a dull moment! 
What promotions have you received during your time with the Novus team? 

When I joined Capita, I started as a Lead Gen for The Novus Programme, this is where I learnt about The Novus programme and Capita’s wider services. After the first 6 months, I was promoted to a Business Development Executive where I began leading my own client meetings. A year later, I was promoted to a Business Development Manager where I managed several clients. Most recently, I have been given the opportunity to manage the Southern sales team alongside my Senior Business Development Manager role which is very rewarding and I have learnt a lot of new skills. 
How has this affected your life outside of work? 

It has given me the opportunity to focus on my passion outside of work, which is music. Music doesn’t often pay the bills but this job has given me the flexibility to continue with my hobby and it has given me the financial stability to travel the country gigging on the weekend with my band! 
What would you say to someone who is considering joining the Novus sales team? 

If you are a great communicator and are looking for a rewarding job role which keeps you on your toes whilst being surrounded by a friendly and supportive team - then this role would be great for you.
