(PRWEB UK) 1 October 2012
WAE+, one of the fastest growing online retailers, has expanded its Birmingham-based team with three new hires. Following WAE+’s successful first year growth, in total the company has hired fourteen new staff since September 2011. The company is also celebrating one year of successful trading today.
Ben Slater, Operations Director at WAE+, comments: “Our growth from two employees to sixteen in our first year reflects WAE+’s overall success. We beat our projected revenue of £1.5 million in our first year, achieving a turnover of £1.65 million through sales of consumer electronics, office supplies, parts and components, and wholesale food and drink products.
“As a young company, we are always looking for fresh ideas and individuals to join our ever-expanding team. We offer excellent career development opportunities and many of our senior staff have been promoted from within the company.”
New employees include Justina Richards, who brings a host of retail expertise. Justina was promoted to Customer Service Team Manager after successfully implementing processes to reduce WAE+’s customer response times. Under Justina’s management, 89 per cent of customer calls are now answered in less than 60 seconds.
Jamie Blakemore also joins the company as Head of the Order Fulfilment Department. He works with the warehouse team to ensure that all orders are dispatched on time across the UK and Europe. Jamie is also actively involved in logistics vendor negotiations.
Ben continued: “We are creating jobs in Birmingham, hiring local staff who demonstrate strong commitment to the fast paced world of online retail and have a desire to progress their own careers. Every business needs ambitious staff to help it grow and we are building an exciting team of individuals working to make WAE+ a success.”
The company is expecting to recruit more staff in the run up to Christmas.
