Tell us about your role and your organisation
My job is to provide account support for local businesses using Dojo card payment terminals and business funding. Dojo is a premium brand, offering businesses a bespoke solution for taking card payments. Does your business use card machines to get paid? Whether big or small, Dojo can help your business run more efficiently. We tailor the package to suit your specific business, reducing rates, making sure you get paid faster, all with transparent costing. Our card machine is new generation (think smart phone) with a built in SIM so works remotely anywhere. From hospitality gratuity options to payment links, we have it all covered. We offer business funding - repaid at a controlled affordability level. We offer additional free services including integrating with over 600 ePOS providers, payment links, referral commissions and much more.
Give us a brief overview of your career journey so far
My career path has taken a few different turns over 20 years. From interior design, home improvement sales, and then into business management in which I was responsible for 30+ staff and 6 branches of a national merchant group. I then had a 5 year career break to start my family, followed by setting up my own events / party business. Now, I am currently self employed in the business financial market, plunging into the B2B sector and enjoying the challenges.
