What’s your name and where do you come from?
Natasha, from Bristol
What’s your role and how long have you worked at Elmtronics?
Associate Consultant, just over 1 year
What’s a typical day at the office like?
Nothing typical about this role!! I am based between home (Swindon now) and our Southern Headquarters at the Bristol & Bath Science Park. I spend 50% of my week on the road; surveying sites, meeting customers, flying the Elmtronics flag. I then spend a little more time, currently, meeting through Zoom, Teams or Hangouts, still talking the behind off everyone I meet, making sure covid-19 restrictions don’t hold us up!
What’s your favourite part of your job?
It is a bit cliché and cringe but it must be educating and helping people. I talk about a subject I am so passionate about and I know Elmtronics customers are the heartbeat of the business.
Ringing the bell on a deal has to be an ultimate fave for me too!
What’s the most inspiring part of your job?
Similar to the above, knowing that people listen to me, trust me and use my support to improve things for them and their business.
