UK Connect are pleased to welcome Lauren McCormick back to the team

UK Connect are pleased to welcome Lauren McCormick back into the business as a Business Development Manager. As the business continues to progress and expand its offerings, the requirement to expand the team has arisen.

Lauren McCormick

Originally, Lauren joined the UK Connect team two years ago as a Key Account Manager, bringing a wealth of account management experience with her and has recently returned after taking maternity leave.

Lauren explains her original reasons for joining UK Connect: “I had met PJ a few times through my previous company and bumped into him when he said he was hiring. I didn’t know anything about the company but knowing PJ, his drive for success, openness and personality I knew it would be an opportunity which was worth exploring and I haven’t looked back since, which is why after recently having my little boy I came back to work after 7 months of maternity leave!”

Transferable Skills

Previously, Lauren looked after some of our largest accounts and can now take that experience and knowledge into her new role as Business Development Manager, where she will be not only seeking new business opportunities, but also will be aiding the on-boarding of new clients and ensuring we cover all their needs.

Lauren tells us: “The part I enjoyed most about her previous role for UK Connect was solving clients problems and coming up with a solution which took away their headaches. I now get to do that every day with new clients!”

She adds: “I’m also now a great multi-tasker with a 1 year old at home!

We are really happy to have Lauren back after her maternity leave and with her previous experience she will be a great asset to our Business Development team. Since returning and then having to adapt quickly to working from home during the Covid19 crisis, Lauren has done an absolutely fantastic job in balancing her home and work life and has already hit the ground running, bringing in some fantastic new opportunities.

Interests in and out of work

Lauren has already made a great start and hit the ground running since re-joining the team just prior to the Covid-19 lockdown. 

When Lauren isn’t working or looking after her 1 year old, she can be found training as she is a pole fitness instructor and has competed all across the UK.

It’s been wonderful to see this business grow. When I first started there was just 7 of us in a small office and now we have a fully fledged team across the country and multiple offices. It’s a fantastic thing to be a part of and I look forward to aiding further in the growth of the company and excited to see what’s to come in the future.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the UK Connect team, as I find they are highly reliable and have good attention to detail and carry out the job to an exceptional standard.
