Karl Taleb – Telesales Manager
“I joined Handepay in March 2013, and have been managing the Handepay telesales team ever since. Working here is a lot of fun, and our telesales environment is relaxed but dedicated. We have a market-leading proposition, and we save independent business owners a lot of money!
Our telesales team are varied in age, experience, knowledge and background. Everyone’s down to earth and focused, with a great sense of humour! There’s no cold-calling involved as we only work from inbound leads, meaning there’s no ‘hard sell’ techniques required!
We have a lot of energy in the team, and I’m often called ‘Tigger’ as I’m always bouncing around. We offer daily, monthly and quarterly incentives, and we also have spontaneous incentives to keep everyone on their toes!
Outside of work, there’s lots of opportunity to get involved in other events. I love to get involved as much as possible in charity events, and have recently took part in a ‘It’s a Knockout’ competition, and we also walked 18 miles from our head office to Old Trafford in aid of the Steve Prescott Foundation. It’s all good fun, and it’s great to spend time with the team outside of work.
We’re looking for hard-workers who are career focused, self-motivated and open to new experiences to join us. Anyone joining us will be coming into a high-performing but supportive team, with massive financial benefits.”
“I’d heard good things about Handepay, so when I saw that they were advertising for telesales staff I decided to apply.
I’ve worked at all levels of sales, and the training I received at Handepay is the best I’ve ever had. It was so in depth, and even though I’ve never worked in the financial industry before I felt confident in the product after completing it. I couldn’t wait to get started!
I love it here! There’s a lot of hard work involved, but it’s a relaxed environment. The office has a fun atmosphere, and everyone is easy to get along with. No one is micromanaged, I can get on and do my job, and earn as much as I want thanks to the uncapped commission! I have only been here for four months, but I’ve already been awarded salesperson of the quarter.
I would definitely say that Handepay is the best company I’ve ever worked for. From the top down, everyone’s approachable and included, with personal events celebrated company-wide. I think that anyone with sales knowledge, who is looking for a new and rewarding challenge, should apply to work here!”
“I attended an open evening last year, and following on from that accepted a position at Handepay in April 2016. I thought that the product and the savings we could make for small businesses sounded fantastic, and I leapt at the opportunity to get on board. The product and savings sells itself, plus you’re provided with a lot of tools and support to help you and your customers.
I come from a sales and services background, and Handepay’s telesales team is the best I have ever worked in. Everyone is laid back and approachable, including senior management. The team make it easy to come to work every morning, and it’s a fun but hardworking office.
There’s always incentives and prizes up for grabs, and I’ve won lots of in my time here. Most recently, I spontaneously won some vouchers for signing the most customers in one day. You’ve got to be willing to put in the effort, but unlike other places I’ve worked, your efforts are always noticed and rewarded!”
“Handepay’s telesales team is the best I’ve ever worked in. There’s never a manager stood over you; we all have a job to do and if you get on with it everything’s fine. The sales targets are all achievable; I’ve managed to hit all my KPI’s for the past eight months! At the end of last year, I won an incentive for achieving the highest sales figures over a period of three months, and was awarded £2,000. It’s amazing to know that the hard work you put in is recognised!
The company environment is fantastic, everyone is friendly, from directors down to new starters. Working with the team is always good, I actually find it enjoyable getting up for work in the morning. Karl knows what he’s doing and motivates the team, it’s great to be able to call him a boss and a friend.
I try to get involved with everything here, I am part of the fundraising committee and help to organise events for the Steve Prescott Foundation. I took part in Handepay’s Grand Final Walk with Karl and some of the team, walking from head office to Old Trafford. It was tough, but raising over £13,000 for the charity was a huge achievement.”
