Meet the Team – Alice Van Cliff, Sales Administrator

Tell us how you ended up at Spitfire?

After I finished my history degree in York in 2019 I moved back to London, not quite knowing what direction I was heading in next. Having specialised in medieval history at university starting a career in the telecoms industry wasn’t something I had considered or even thought was an option! Luckily I was referred through a local recruitment agency and haven’t looked back!

What’s your role?

I’m an administrator for the Direct Sales team, meaning I work behind the scenes supporting the team throughout the sales process. Day to day I process incoming orders, talk to suppliers, and generally help the account managers with any tasks they need to help make their sales. I also get to work on larger projects involving sales statistics, optimising and designing new reports, which is by far the most enjoyable and challenging aspect of the job.

What’s the most rewarding thing about working in Sales?

I’m in a unique position as a middle-man between the sales team and other departments within Spitfire. Being involved in the sales process from start to finish is incredibly satisfying. From assisting in the quotation phase, to passing finalised orders through to our provisioning and project management teams. Knowing that we’ve finished another sale with a job well done is always a great feeling!

What do you do with your time outside of work?

I made some lifelong friends at university when I joined a Dungeons and Dragons group in my first year. In our main campaign we’re still following the same story and characters that we created back in 2017, although we also play shorter one-off games with a whole variety of characters and settings. Since then our group has gone international – our Dungeon Master lives in Switzerland, and another member is in the US. Our bi-weekly games certainly wouldn’t be possible without the internet!

Finally if you were asked to set up a new office for Spitfire’s Partner Service anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

 

I’d have to say York – I miss living there every day! It’s a beautiful medieval town where your commute is never longer than 15 minutes by foot or bike. If that’s not enough to sway you, locals love to say there’s 365 pubs in the town – one for every day of the year!
