Business Woman Awards 2017

8 Corporate Vision / BusinessWomen Awards 2017 , Most Influential Woman in Corporate Cleaning - UK BW170005 Vicky Barcock has been one of the teamof Senior Business Development Managers at WORKPLACE for just under two years. We spoke to Vicky as we find out more about her role and what she attributes to her ongoing success. WORKPLACE are experts in delivering high quality business contract services. Combining skilled people with powerful technologies, the firm keeps critical infrastructure performing to the required levels. Vicky provides us with a breakdown of her role at the firm. “At WORKPLACE, my role is to source potential leads, set up client meetings, provide quotes and tenders to potential clients, prepare and deliver presentations and assist with contract mobilisations and start- ups. “Within the role, I am continually learning new aspects of the industry especially since we have moved to multi service delivery. The role is challenging but interesting and I enjoy visiting different areas of London and meeting with new people every day to see how we can assist and improve their services.” Regarding what advice she would give to other women looking to succeed in the industry, Vicky believes that it is essential that people settle into a role that they are comfortable with, and be confident that they can deliver in all aspects of work. “My main piece of advice to women wishing to get into a Business Development role would be to spend some time in the operations division of a cleaning company before moving in to sales. I have seen in the past too many sales people who don’t get the respect of the operations team as they haven’t done the job themselves. “Potential clients will also see that you know all aspects of the business and understand their needs and how they can be addressed. Clients can pick up on someone who just wants the sale and they tend to go elsewhere. A positive for me is that I work for a company that believe in what they do and want to improve the provision of services.” In her concluding comments, Vicky is quick to praise the company for helping and letting her perform her job to the best of her capability, before signing off with her main vision for WORKPLACE. “Ultimately, I am lucky that my employer provides opportunities for training and innovation and moves quickly with regards to product and service innovation. My goal is to make us a key player within the FM market in the London Region.” Contact: Vicky Barcock Contact Email: sayhello@ Address: 40a Station Road, Twyford, Berkshire, RG10 9NT Phone: 0844 561 1760 Website: www.
