  • Job Title: Salesforce Administrator
  • Works: Vitality
  • Lives: London

Roc wanted to progress his career and earning potential to support his family. After falling in love with Salesforce as an end-user he decided to research job roles to work with the product directly. He upskilled with Supermums as a Salesforce Administrator and landed a job working at Vitality Health Insurance. He is now really stimulated in his new job role as there is never a dull day and enjoying the flexibility and lifestyle his new employer offers him.

 

Roc decided to upskill and launch his Salesforce career because… 

Originally from Canada I moved to the UK in 2015. Before working with Salesforce, I worked in marketing for a Housing Association which typically involved listed the properties that were available for let. I also tracked purchase orders and undertook general administrator duties. I used Salesforce within my previous role as an end customer and I developed a love for the product. It encouraged me to research more about job opportunities working with the Salesforce product directly.

 

Roc decided to upskill in Salesforce Admin with Supermums because… 

I did not want to take a short cut learning Salesforce and so I did a lot of research into the different training options. I chose Supermums because it had a great reputation and it accommodated specifically for parents who wanted to learn flexibility around my current working situation. The price was reasonable for what it offered me.
The one-to-one mentor was super valuable as I was able to call if I got stuck with my homework and get help with interview prep because of their experience in the industry. My relationship with my mentor has continued post the course.

Roc was able to launch his new Salesforce career successfully because…. 

It took me 6-7 weeks to land my current job role. During this time, I was very proactive and applied for a lot of job applications and also got many rejections. I was not in a rush as I did have my current employment, but I wanted to make the move, so I persevered. I added the Supermums work experience on my CV and Linked In profile and this attracted recruiters to my profile straight away.

I successfully landed a job at Vitality and one of the reasons they hired me was because the Supermums course was on my CV. They also really liked my personality and the energy I could bring to the role. I managed to land the job even before getting my Admin Certification as I wanted to get more hands-on experience before passing my cert.

Roc has now successfully achieved a Salesforce career that offers him…  

My mind is now much more stimulated that in my previous career. There is never a dull day because there are things to do. There is a lot to the role which I enjoy, and I feel valued as part of my team. I am part of the Sales Cloud Team and deal with any incoming requests from the users. I am also building our training pages to support for end users. We cross collaborate with other teams who look after Service Cloud and Marketing Cloud, so I also benefit from this transferrable experience which is valuable for me. I am keen to progress my career and learn new products and certifications going forward.

I enjoy working for Vitality as it is company which champions healthy lifestyles and it is helping me to become more healthier as well, with healthy free food options and perks. I have the flexibility I wanted with a hybrid role. I chose to do 2 days in the office a week and I work remotely the rest of the time.

In life if you want to get ahead and be better. Its going to take hard work but if you invest the time and energy to accomplish new things then the rewards are great. So as a word of advice just take that step and give it a shot. Supermums does a great job at supporting you. You are in good hands.
