What is your job at SenSat?

Business Development Manager.

 

How did you get into what you do?

I have been selling things since I was 7 in the primary school playground so that & being competitive from the ‘get go’ meant an incentivised job was the natural progression.

What’s your favourite thing about your job?  

SenSat is an exciting place to work which has many challenges being a new (ish) company, having the culture already embedded to ‘get s%4t done’ means we overcome these challenges through great team knowledge & hard work constantly learning from our processes

 

Why did you join SenSat?  

I tend to be a great judge of character on first impressions and having spent time with James (Dean) & Harry I could see the vision for the business and that they had the drive and knowledge.  I felt I could contribute to this in a big way wearing a very different hat so this made SenSat my first choice in my next career step!

 

What has been your favourite memory at SenSat?

Picking up contracts on some of Europe’s largest infrastructure programmes & seeing the team progress & grow into what it is today

 

What has been your proudest achievement at SenSat?

Helping the team reach various commercial milestones with the work we have won which has resulted in some quite large bottles of bubbly

What’s the coolest thing about the SenSat office?

It’s location in Shoreditch, the office culture, music, very open and easy to communicate amongst teams

 

If you could write a slogan for SenSat, it would read:

Impossible is nothing for SenSat!
