It has been 18 months of steep learning curve for James Stanford who was offered the first ever ‘work experience’ opportunity within B2B Cashflow Solutions.
‘Guinea Pig’ James joined us, as a favour to his father who is well known to our Directors, in September 2011 on a work experience programme after passing his A-levels but struggling to find a career path.
Since that time James has worked extremely hard from a ‘standing start’ to learn the basics of commercial finance, focusing specifically on asset finance, invoice finance, and business rates rebates in support of our business customers.
During his ‘apprenticeship’ James has been developing his industry knowledge and skills through on the job training, periodic written tests, and targeted delivery of service and solutions to selected existing customers.
More recently James has begun to evidence a level of apptitude which is exposing him to regular face to face contact with customers and professional partners, while also generating his own new-business customer base through proactive contact of pre-qualified target prospects.
We are pleased to welcome James to our full-time core team and wish him every success in his chosen career with B2B Cashflow Solutions… but we hope he will continue to make a quality cup of tea at 14:30!
