KUKA success story: Sales Administrator, Ruth Chivers
My further education and the first ten years of my working life were focused on hairdressing, and I never thought I would amount to anything else. I moved into an office-based job for an oil and gas company, but when I wanted to try something new, I applied for a receptionist job at KUKA. It was the best decision I have ever made.
KUKA saw potential in me that I didn’t even notice myself, and gave me confidence that I could be just as successful as anyone else. The managing director, Jeff, quickly recognised that I had an aptitude for sales, and I was offered a new role as Sales Administrator.
I’ve only been at KUKA for two years, but my role has developed really fast. I recently started helping out with order management processing, and I’m really looking forward to getting more involved with the customers. I was also recently given the role of wellbeing representative, which means I promote healthy living to my colleagues and organise fun events that keep us fit too.
