Sector: Charitable Organisations
Job Title: Non Profit Salesforce Consultant
Works: Deveaux Group
As a stay at home mum who frequently relocated around the world as part of her partner’s job, Shenita had been trying to find a career that she could do from anywhere that would equally pay her a good wage. She came across Salesforce and Supermums and upskilled in Admin and Consultancy Skills. She now works as a freelance Salesforce Consultant working remotely.
Shenita decided to upskill and launch her Salesforce career because…
I have been a stay at home for a number of years travelling around the world with my partner due to his work commitments. Before then I worked as a client manager for a corporate rental car company and then during my time as a SAHM I decided to upskill. I am currently living in Barbados and I wanted to look for a career opportunity to work remotely with decent pay.
Over the years I have completed an MBA and a Masters in Marketing. As part of a fellowship programme I started working for an organisation that was implementing Salesforce for a customer service centre. This was first exposure to Salesforce. Following on from this role I ended up working for an organisation as a project manager where they were also implementing Salesforce and I realised I needed to understand the product in more detail.
Shenita decided to upskill in Salesforce Admin & Consultancy Skills with Supermums because…
I learnt about Supermums from a webinar where Heather was speaking. I couldn’t believe how much it covered to help me relaunch my career but was initially concerned about the cost. After hearing Heather speak I compared the cost to other courses and I felt Supermums was the most comprehensive for what it offered. I decided to take both the Admin and Consultancy Skills Course as I wanted to upskill in business analysis as well as Salesforce Admin and their was a good package deal.
With Supermums, you get so much for more from it than just training. You get coaching and mentoring and continued personal development through many other avenues from it. Guys are welcome too!
Shenita was able to launch her new Salesforce career successfully because….
I initially had self-doubt that I wouldn’t get a career but this quickly changed. The Course was amazing. I didn’t realise how amazing it was going to be. The Training Manager was excellent. The cohort really bonded and supported each other to get through the work that needed to be completed. The bond we formed helped me to get through it all. I was fortunate enough to get a great Internship. As a team I had so much autonomy to make decisions and create a system for a client. This gave me great confidence to get back into work.
I realised that there was so much to learn during the six months. The course material helped me to practice the learning to pass the certification.
Shenita has now successfully achieved a Salesforce career that offers her…
I am now working as an independent Salesforce Consultant and I have secured work from the Consultancy Firm I did my internship with. I was able to bring my own skills and experience to the table to the new job roles alongside new skills from the training in Admin and Consultancy Skills from Supermums.
I initially went to Texas Dreamin and met a recruiter. I started applying for roles and got a few interviews but when I when back to the Consultancy firm I had interned for I was offered a Non-Profit Salesforce Consultant role and I now act as Technical Team Lead role on projects.
I am now able to work from anywhere in my role and to continue to travel with my family as needed which is perfect. As an independent consultant I can pick up other work from other clients and work from anywhere in the future because of the remote working possibilities.
There are so many career opportunities for people to do. The community is so inviting and supportive. It’s definitely worth it.
Invest in yourself. Learn the tool and go all in! With Supermums and Salesforce together it is what you make it. The sky is the limit for earning potential and careers.
