Meet the team: Rachel Hunt – Technical Sales

Step into the shoes of Rachel Hunt, our Technical Sales dynamo. Join us for an engaging conversation as we delve into Rachel’s world of tech, her role in sales, and her passions outside of work.

How long have you worked for Kingfisher? 2 ½ years

What is your role? I have a dual role – technical and sales (double trouble!). Typically, I would work on quotes and chase up quote feedback from customers, all whilst looking for new sales leads and being awesome company for my colleagues.

What do you enjoy about your role? I enjoy how diverse it can be and how I am constantly learning new things. My colleagues also really make the job enjoyable; we are a close team.

I can’t get through the week without… Chocolate! (loads of it)

What did you want to be when you grew up? A cat, I still do!

Favourite film? Zodiac, I just love any serial killer/psychological thriller movie.

Favourite TV show? I don’t want to say really…‘Beauty and the Geek’ don’t judge ha! Series 7 is the best.

Morning person or night owl? Morning person in the week, night owl at the weekend.

Met anyone famous? A guy from Coronation Street who I met in Escapade night Club years ago in Chesterfield! I don’t remember his name though!

Staycation or exotic holiday? Exotic holiday – show me the cocktails!

Favourite food? Chocolate for the win!

Favourite drink? Corona or Jager and Red Bull. For a good night – both!

Ideal dinner party guests (past or present)? Heath Ledger (that smile!) Marylin Monroe and maybe Denzel Washington (random I know).

Three things to take to a desert island? Chocolate (I don’t care that it would melt!), a deckchair so I don’t get all sandy sitting down, and a ball to make my own Wilson, so I have someone to talk about louvres to.
