Kully decided to upskill and accelerate her Salesforce career because.. 

I was living and working in Dubai with my husband and two daughters for seven years until last year. In Dubai, I worked for an oil & gas company and that’s where I was actually introduced to the Salesforce system, and my interest grew from there.  


My background has always been in Information Systems, so it wasn’t a career change for me, but more focusing on a particular information system and fully understanding what it can do and how it can best benefit businesses.  


I was scrolling through LinkedIn looking at jobs, and an ad came for the Supermums course. It fitted in nicely with what I wanted to do. Yes, there is a cost element involved, but actually, if you invest in yourself, there are rewards at the end of it.  


Kully decided to upskill in Salesforce Admin Course and the Salesforce Consultancy Skills Course with Supermums because.. 


I found the mentorship immensely useful. We set up weekly meetings and I’d go through anything I was stuck on. Having that mentor there as a support network, to help you understand what you’re learning was really helpful. That’s one of the best things about the program. 


Once I had done the admin course which gives you hands-on experience in terms of the back end of a system, how to build and create things, I wanted to expand my skills and learn something new. When the Consultancy course was available, I thought that it links nicely. 


The agile methodology has been a big part of the consultancy course for me because it teaches you certain ways of working where historically I would not really have delved deeply, and the course really teaches you the correct methodologies to use.  


The business analysis side was a huge part of it because it really nails down exactly what you need to be asking, and how to gather the most information that will benefit us in making a recommendation, which will then benefit the business and increase ROI as well. 


Kully was able to launch her new Salesforce career successfully because…. 


During the transition in my move back to England, I was in touch with the Supermums Recruitment team and they were absolutely phenomenal in searching for roles and letting me know if anything was available that they thought was particularly suited to my skill level. I got my first contract role within a few months of returning to the UK and I’m now on a new contract role through Supermums as well.  


Being on the Consultancy Skills Course has enabled me to get the confidence to really question what a business are after, really dig deep and find out their full business requirements and it really does help you. 


The interview process was a lot to do with my level of confidence, but when you’ve been in the admin or consultancy course, you have that level of confidence to show somebody what you’ve learnt as well as your ambition for the system. I think that shines through. In a way, the course teaches you how to sell yourself. 


Kully has now successfully achieved a Salesforce career that offers her..  

I am currently working as a Salesforce Consultant on a remote contract role for a non-profit business called Transparency International who are based in Berlin, Germany.    


I work remotely from home every day, and it works wonders as I can work around the girls in terms of school drop-offs and pick-ups. I remember working previously and I was constantly worried that I can’t be late leaving the office. You know, that worry disappears, and I think it helps you relax so much more, and you have that additional focus. The flexibility has been amazing. 


I would say the best thing about by job is working with stakeholders and understanding their current business processes and issues and then coming up with the best fit solutions to help meet their business goals while still getting a return on investment (ROI).
