Lisa Lewis – Assistant Manager
I first started in Brantano a year ago as a Sales Assistant on a 4 hour contract. After 8 months I was promoted to a Supervisor, and within a month of being a Supervisor I was promoted to an Assistant Manager.
When I was growing up, I hoped to be an actress but also had a passion to be a manger in business, and succeed in being promoted to supervisor with a previous retailer where I was able to drive sales and learn different job roles within a retail company. When I moved area I chose to apply to Brantano because I wanted to continue my development in shoe fitting and customer care and felt I had the knowledge to improve and step into a management role.
I believe it takes a good sense of humour, a positive attitude and a sense of fun to be a Brantano employee, no day can be seen as a dull day. I face challenges within my job role everyday with commercial decisions, staff delegation and driving sales however, the best thing about my job is seeing the enthusiasm of the staff when they reach and exceed their targets and do well within their working day.
The advice I would give to any new starter is to come to work with a smile and create healthy competition and make the work place a place of enjoyment.
This is why I would say the pink ‘rounder’ shoe from our Red Level brand best describes me, girly, energetic and fun.
