Dear Prospective Employer, My last position was as Business Development Manager, unfortunately along with a few other work colleagues I was made redundant on the 13/06/14, (A reference is available from National Sales Manager) . Prior to working as BDM I was Owner & Manager of my own bedding/Furniture store (Sleepys Oxley). After working for Sleepys as a store manager for 3 years I was able to buy the new store at Oxley in August 2010, I grew the Sales of the store during that period by 113% which has taken the store to the top 3 within the Sleepys franchise; The growth happened during the "retail recession" and was mainly due to my Local Area Marketing and, specialised training for my staff, plus other criteria centred around stock control, promotions and Sales skills. I have in-depth knowledge of Sales & Staff training, Creating KPI Reports, Profit & Loss Statements, Balance Sheets, Stock Take Schedules and all aspects of upper Managements Systems. I have the necessary people and technical skills to Manage (on an executive & grass roots level), most types of business's, coupled with my understanding and control of the 4 basic personally types (Florence Littauer, Personality Plus), I am able to manipulate most emotional & Logic based decision making processes, making me an exceptional Negotiator and Motivator. Whilst I may not have the exact qualifications and experience in your specific industry, my wealth of experience and exceptional ‘people’ skills, coupled with my ability to learn quickly, would make me an asset to any business that requires my exceptional capabilities. Regards Rob Ainsworth Mn.)
