We’re recruiting: have you got what it takes to be our Personnel, Partner & Agent Manager?

Web-Translations is looking to recruit a Personnel, Partner & Agent Manager to help recruit, manage, and train our team.

The successful candidate will recruit and manage a team of freelance sales agents,  recruit and manage partner companies to our affiliate scheme, and recruit new team members to the office.

A large part of the role involves training, motivating sales people and holding people to account for their performance.

More details about the role and what we’re looking for are available on our website, but if you feel you’ve reached the ‘glass ceiling’ in your current role, and that your potential is not being exploited, this is an excellent opportunity for you to shine.

If you’ve got 5 years or more of sales management experience (especially in the recruitment or translation industry), and have a proven record of being able to drive team performance, we’d love to hear from you!

To apply for this vacancy, please email your CV with a covering email stating why you wish to work with us to: recruitment@web-translations.com.

Meet the team: Geraldine McCarry

Hello!

I joined Web-Translations in January 2011 as a project coordinator after graduating with a degree in Spanish and business administration from the University Of Kent in July 2010.

I’m new to Leeds, having recently moved here from my hometown of Sychdyn – for those of you with no idea where that is, it’s in North Wales, not far from Chester.

I’ve lived, studied, worked and travelled overseas fairly extensively, including a five-year stint attending an international school in Sri Lanka, a gap year (which I spent on a work placement, a volunteering programme and generally travelling) and also a year abroad at a university in Spain. In fact, many of my closest family members and friends still reside abroad; the main advantage of which being that should I fancy a trip away I have lots of options for where to stay! Other languages and cultures are therefore inevitably of great interest to me.

I’ve had some varied and interesting jobs in the past – museum guide and dog groomer to name but two – and I’m sure Web-Translations will become another example of a varied and interesting job if the past couple of weeks are any indication! I certainly do relish a challenge and always strive to set myself goals for personal development.

Apart from the usual things like spending time with my friends and family and pets, in my spare time I like going to the cinema, visiting museums and art exhibitions, long walks in the countryside, reading, singing and writing poetry.
