ROOFING components manufacturer, Klober has made three new appointments aiming to embrace a diverse skillset to help bridge the skills gap.
As the numbers of unemployed people has dropped below job vacancy numbers for the first time, the pressure on employers continues.
In its latest recruitment drive, Klober says it identified this as an opportunity to bring a fresh perspective to its business, ultimately adding value to its customers.
The three new Area Account Managers who have joined the business are: Pedro Ramos for the South East; Thomas Watts for Yorkshire and the North East; and Joe Haley for South Wales and the South West.
Ben Edge, Divisional Sales Manager at Klober, commented: “As a management team we decided to shake up the recruitment brief and consider experience from outside the construction sector because we knew key account roles would utilise a similar skillset. This has hugely paid off in helping us to find some highly skilled individuals who have the initiative and strategic ability to work with customers of all sizes.”
Trio of Appointments
Pedro Ramos and Thomas Watts both join Klober from outside the industry, each bringing unique experience from their previous roles.
Pedro said, “I believe experience from my previous role will be transferable, a lot of what I was previously doing was building rapport, negotiation, communication, strategic planning and understanding how we can partner up with our customers to help grow their business, as well as ours. I’m really excited for what lies ahead.”
Thomas added, “What attracted me to Klober was the opportunity to work for a market leader in an important sector. Although I am new to the industry, I appreciate the presence Klober has, and I believe my background of working with a premium brand will mean I can enhance the customer experience further.”
Joe Haley joins with over three years sales’ experience in the electrical industry. “I’m looking forward to getting my teeth stuck into a new challenge. Although this is a new sector for me, I believe there are many similarities between the electrical and roofing trades which will help me foster close relationships with customers,” said Joe.
