Our latest recruit, Christie Mollart, joined us in January 2016 in a Sales Support role in the Pre-Sales team. In this blog, we get to know Christie a bit better and find out why coffee and the local Saddleworth countryside are so important to her.
Why did you join Capita?
There seems to be so many opportunities to progress within Capita, which I love the idea of! It is human nature to always want to be better than you are, and to have better things.
What’s your background?
My background is in customer service, having just left the Promotions Team at Oldham Evening Chronicle. All of my previous jobs were customer service based and I absolutely love it.
Why did you want to work in the language industry?
I figured at the age of 24 it’s probably about time I started a proper career! I think the language industry will open so many more doors for me in the future.
Why did you want a role in Pre-Sales?
Having no experience in localisation, joining the pre-sales team is a good way for me to get my foot in the door.
What would you consider to be your biggest professional success?
When I worked at Nando’s I won Nandoca of the Year (employee of the year) – wahoo!
What makes you get out of bed in the morning?
The smell of coffee – my coffee machine is my best friend, and I have it on a timer ready for when I get up!
What are your hobbies outside of work?
I love the healthy lifestyle. I attend CrossFit 3 times a week, I also like to run and take my bike out over the hills of Saddleworth.
If you weren’t in Pre-Sales what would you love to be doing?
When I was at school, I always wanted to be an air hostess in the RAF.
Who inspires you?
As cheesy as it sounds – my mum. She is such an inspirational, strong, independent woman, and I’d love to be just like her when I’m older.
Any tips for those starting out on their localisation journey?
If, like me, you are just starting out, just be patient with the learning process. You will pick it up, and it does get easier.
We’d like to wish Christie the best of luck as she furthers her career with Capita Translation and interpreting.
