Organisations are all about the people and we are no different.
We sat down with Claire Kavanagh in our sales team to talk hobbies, mantras, superpowers and more!
Name: Claire Kavanagh
Job Title: Sales Operations
What does your job entail?
Quite simply – a bit of this and a bit of that! I’m part of the Sales and Marketing team and support in the day-to-day running of both functions but I also work closely with our product team and customer success. As all of our teams here in Getvisibility are growing, of the newbies, I’m the longest here so I do some induction/orientation for new employees, proof-reading/editing, ordering stuff etc. I also support the Finance function one day a week and am training in all things Salesforce.
What do you like most about your job?
Every day is different – I like that! I love working cross-functionally. The nature of my role is to know what’s going on in every department so this feeds both my need for a professional overview along with the control freak within. I get to work with all of the people here which is great. I’m still relatively new to the company and still learning which I enjoy.
What’s a fun fact about you many people may not know?
I can roller-skate!
When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
I have teenagers and dogs – what’s free time?! I jest! I take time every day to meditate.
What’s your favourite indoor/outdoor activity?
I love all kinds of games … puzzles, sudoku, cards, board-games. Outdoors, I walk – always near water – so either in the park in Ballincollig next to the river or on the beach – the beach is my favourite place 🙂
What is the best career lesson you’ve learned so far?
Being part of a team brings out the best in me! While we all work well on our own, the positives that working as part of a team bring to people both personally and to the business are immeasurable.
How would you describe the people and culture at Getvisibility?
Young, friendly and very smart. I am really lucky to be part of a team of forward-thinking extremely intelligent people who are really fun to be around. As many of us as possible eat lunch together every day which helps build relationships and is an important part of our culture here.
What is your motto or personal mantra?
We’re here for a good time, not a long time!
What tv show/movie are you ashamed to admit you love?
Oh dear! I binge watch teenage box-sets … Skins, The Inbetweeners, Gilmore Girls, Pretty Little Liars … the list is endless.
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
As a massive Harry Potter fan it would have to be to have a functioning wand … Wingardium Leviosa!
