It was pretty clear within the first couple of minutes of talking to Simon, that his passion and drive for coaching is stemmed from his sporting background. We talked about his sporting career at Burton Albion where he played semi-professional football for 4 years, and how his mindset around sporting performance can translate into a business environment.
“Rather than focus on one thing and be 1 % better at it - let’s focus on 5 things and improve all aspects of it by 0.5% which gives you a better chance of maximising your performance”
I asked Simon why he joined CBSbutler, he said that after two decades on the “coal-face” he wanted a new challenge and felt it was time to take his career in a new direction. However, recruitment is what he knew, and it wasn’t until CBSbutler came along and offered him this exciting opportunity, that Simon was able to fulfil his coaching ambition.
“It’s an exciting time to be joining CBSbutler in terms of what the future holds, I can’t wait to help take the company to the next level. It’s a challenging role but I am really excited about it, I have a wealth of experience to offer individuals of all levels, who want support and development to help them through each stage of their promotional criteria. I want to help recruiters be the best they possibly can be, maximise their earnings and make them the go-to specialists in their respective market sectors”
Simon’s energy is infectious, he is down to earth but has the right mix of charm and confidence that makes you feel at ease. He is clearly invested in the job and any young professionals looking to join
He replied…” CBSbutler is a very strong brand and you will be proud to work here, I was immediately impressed by the culture and there is a contagious energy on the sales floor. Most importantly, for all salespeople, you have the opportunity to earn uncapped commission and there are some big billers here, who can only serve to inspire others.
