Every month we take a look at one of the Newtown team, following them on a typical day in our always-busy and never-dull business.
This month, Natalie gives us a peek into what’s been going on in the world of sales.
Nissan Sales Specialist
3 years, 6 months
In a nutshell, I sell new and used cars in our Nissan showroom.
I got my job with the help of my friend and neighbour, Chris, who's worked in car sales for many years. He put in a good word and Newtown Motors gave me an opportunity.
There is no such thing as a typical day in car sales! Every single day is different and you never know what you’re going to be faced with; that’s one of the reasons that I enjoy it so much.
One thing I’ve learnt from working here is that no matter how thoroughly you plan, no matter how much you think you know, you’ll still never have thought of everything! As for something I love about Newtown Motors, there's always cake here!!
My proudest moment in work was probably when I got the highest marks out of all our sales staff in the end of year sales accreditation. As a reward, Nissan sent me to Williams F1 centre for the day. Outside of work, I was very proud and privileged to be nominated as Captain of Risca Ladies Hockey Team
The thing that motivates me to get up is wondering what the coming day will bring. No two days are identical at Newtown Motors; you never know what challenges or opportunities are going to appear.
There are winners and losers in life. Losers let things happen; winners make things happen.
I’m a “prepper”, meaning I prep for disasters such as a zombie apocalypse. I even have a B.O.B (Bug Out Bag) containing the bare essentials that I'd need to survive for 72 hours if it all goes pear shaped!
I like to relax with a good book or sometimes I'll do some gardening or baking.
I actually wanted to be a teacher when I grew up; an English teacher if you want to be specific.
I'd love to go trekking in Nepal.
I put this question to my colleagues and I have to say, I wasn’t entirely happy with the response! Apparently it'd be either Dawn French, Ruby Wax, Jo Brand or Danny DeVito in drag!!
