Interviewee: Brooke Pope
Organisation: Mainfreight (Owens Transport)
Role: Account Manager
When I left school I had no idea my role as a receptionist would open so many doors. In two years I’ve worked in accounts, planned and run branch events, worked in sales support with five reps relying on while they are out on the road gaining new business. We’re a successful team and we all support each other.
If you work hard, prove yourself and show you’re prepared to learn, there will always be a ‘next step’ for you at Mainfreight. It’s not like other businesses, it’s got a real family feel and my friend group has really expanded since I started. You get to take charge of your own career and here it’s all about career options and opportunities.
What’s next? I’m aiming for a sales role with responsibility and variety. I know that with the right attitude, there’s nothing stopping me from going all the way to the top!
