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 back in 2007 and has seen a lot of changes to Apprenticeships and funding. 

“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 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 training provider that can access additional funding, have knowledge of the Apprenticeship levy and provide a full managed service.

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