What is your role and what does it involve?Ricky Shafier

I work in the Business Development team. My day to day focus is taking qualified business leads and getting them funded on our platform. I will speak to 30-40 clients on a daily basis and help work through funding requirements, managing relationships with their existing funders, and ensuring they are a good fit for MarketInvoice.

What are some of the challenges you are facing in your role?

The main challenge is educating our clients about MarketInvoice and how we are different to other options. In a growing financial landscape there is more competition out there but being able to sell a market leading product means you usually come out on top. Managing a high number of accounts also keeps you on your toes!

What have you enjoyed about working at MarketInvoice so far?

The people are the highlight. Working in a fun, highly motivated team keeps you energised. No two days are the same, I have learnt a hell of a lot in my time here and still do.

What kind of training have you received?

A new formal training structure has been implemented which has started with formalised sales training for the whole team. Having not had sales training in previous jobs I have found this particularly useful.

What do you hope the future at MarketInvoice holds for you?

I hope MarketInvoice continues it’s growth and expansion into new markets as it plans to. If so then I can see my career path follow it into a management role. We have recently been through a round of funding and we are using that to grow the business further, growth I am looking forward to being part of.
