Our Success stories: Lisa Wallace

Name: Lisa Wallace
Job title: Senior Business Development Manager (Novus)

How long have you worked for the Novus sales team?
I joined Capita Novus in March 2015.

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

The main reason behind my decision to join Capita was the opportunity available to learn and develop my career in an exciting and ever-changing industry. During the interview process I got a really good impression from the Novus team; they were really welcoming and energetic about their jobs and I wanted to be part of that! 

What has been the highlight of your time with the Novus team?
There has been several highlights working with the Novus team, all of which have stemmed from having the opportunity to build my own career and develop relationships with clients to provide a service that is beneficial to their business and see our Novus candidates becoming successful in their streams. The balance of being in the office and out on the field, means that every day is different, which is a challenge that I thoroughly enjoy. 

What promotions have you received during your time with the Novus team?
I joined a new office in Manchester and was brought on as a Lead Generation. Within my first 6 months I was promoted to Business Development Executive where I was leading all my own client meetings. From my pure determination and hard work I was promoted to Business Development Manager in under 12 months managing several major accounts which I opened. Following my 2 years with Capita, I have been promoted to manage the Northern team and develop juniors and see their careers grow. 

How has this affected your life outside of work?
When I am in work I give 100%, outside of work I am one half of a Techno DJ duo which is an expensive and time-consuming hobby. Capita has given me the focus and financial stabilities to keep my hobby up-to-date and the determination to be successful worldwide. I have also learnt to make the most of my weekends and have visited some great countries over the past year for DJing or pleasure. 

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

If you have the ability to work on your own initiative, motivated, have great communication skills and want to be part of a successful collaborative team, this is a great career to be in.
