Rakee brings over 10 years sales, business development and marketing experience to HR Solutions, gained within the professional services, software and education sectors.

 

Prior to joining HR Solutions, Rakee was a new business development executive in a top 50 National Law Firm, where she gained an interest in steering her career towards the HR sector.

Rakee’s sales career began in a retail high street where she was involved in merchandising and replenishment of stock but she quickly found that what she most enjoyed about her job was the the opportunity to meet people and talk.  Her next step was to continue within retail sales in the Telecomms sector, where she consistently over achieved targets.  Rakee was always in the top of her store for hitting targets as well as in the top 50 across the region across 13 stores.  Rakee then chose to pursue a business to business sales opportunity.  Successes she achieved in a difficult economic climate resulted in her being headhunted for a new business role within the finance sector in London where again she comfortably exceeded sales targets whilst developing strong long-term relationships with clients.

In her spare time Rakee enjoys cooking, travelling and badminton. Rakee aspires to encourage people to develop confidence through theatrical make up and dance as a not for profit venture.

Rakee’s Q&A

What’s your greatest personal achievement?

My biggest achievement is my sales career with success that has been built upon consistency in reaching targets and a high level of professionalism.  My can-do attitude means that I tackle projects with a meticulous approach from start to finish.

What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given?

Accept what you can’t change and change what you can’t accept.

What's your favourite movie?

I can’t pick just one, but I love the following movies: The Pursuit of Happyness, Forrest Gump and Shawshank Redemption.  The climactic scenes are powerful and cathartic such as The Shawshank Redemption’s golden moment. Each movie provides insight and inspiration of real life hurdles and restores self-belief to overcome or deal with these hurdles.

What do you wish other people knew about HR Solutions?

Everyone here is so friendly and passionate about what they do; that makes them client centric, keeping clients at the core of their values.
