West Midlands and West

Amanda Watson
Intec Sales Executive, West Midlands

With a career in sales and customer service gained from a laboratory supplies company and paper merchant, Amanda has always been happiest when dealing with people.  She joined Intec in 2007 and after a brief career break to raise her family she is back in her role. 

“Being out on the road really suits me,” she says. “I love spending time with customers, introducing them to our services and putting proposals together.

“The employers I meet are looking for a company which can meet all their NVQ and apprenticeship training needs.  If it’s a large organisation it follows that they have different departments to look after be it warehousing, customer service and management.  They are also looking for a company that can access funding.

“Over the years, employers’ needs haven’t changed a great deal apart from the new focus on Apprenticeships.  Although some training budgets were squeezed through the recession, the best businesses have realised that investment in staff improves morale and boosts future performance.”

In her spare time she loves to swim and enjoys spending time with friends and family

Vicky Bolton
Intec Sales Executive, West Midlands

Sales focused, committed and outgoing, Vicky joined Intec in March 2013 following a successful 10 year sales career with Co-op in their travel division.

As an Intec Sales Executive, Vicky provides a vital link between local employers and the training courses that can benefit their employees and ultimately their businesses. It’s a demanding yet satisfying responsibility.

"What drew me to Intec was the great work that it does in the region, especially the positive results our training programmes bring to individuals and businesses. In fact, I have achieved my Level 3 Diploma in Sales and so know first-hand the benefits of nationally accredited qualifications."

"I really enjoy meeting new people so this is a perfect role for me. Every day is a fresh challenge with new opportunities to help recognise and develop peoples’ abilities and skills through accredited qualifications. It is very rewarding career.”

Away from work, Vicky enjoys horse riding, the gym, eating out and socialising with friends. 

Terri Gamble 

Recruitment Team Leader  

There’s no question, Terri is one busy bee. As the first R Consultant to be appointed by Intec for its Apprentice Recruitment division, she has recently been promoted to Recruitment Team Leader and has had a formative influence on what is now one of Intec’s most exciting ventures in personnel training and development.

Terri, who has more than 10 years’ experience in recruitment and sales, reveals the how, whys and what’s of her immersive and fundamentally rewarding role:  

“To date, I’ve recruited for some household names. From construction to recruitment, demonstrating the scope and opportunity for this service. The feedback I get from apprentices who have gone on to become fully paid, fully skilled members of the workforce is tremendous. Hard work admittedly but done correctly, as we do, it’s a win-win situation for all.”
