Meet the Team – Cara Robinson– Sales Administrator

How long have you been at Trimcraft?

I started at Trimcraft in March 2008

What is your job role within the company?

I work in sales, so I basically enter the sales orders, make sure the web orders go through the system, and maintain contact between the sales office and our warehouse to ensure orders go out on time. I handle customer and consumer queries regarding products and I also manage the demonstration program.

What is an average day like at Trimcraft?

Busy! There are always lots to do and everyday is different.

What’s the best thing about working for Trimcraft?

Seeing all the new products that come in and getting to play with them all! Also my colleagues are all great so it is an easy job to wake up to on a Monday; I can honestly say I never get Monday morning blues.

What's your favourite part of working within a team?

I work within a great team, everybody has a role and this team just gels really well. Our sales team are all nuts so that helps to make the day more enjoyable.

What is your favourite Trimcraft product, why?

Oh Gosh If you asked me last week it would have been the Deco Art fabric paints; they are so good and easy to paint with. But this week, I would have to say the Cricut Iron on Vinyl I have created a slogan t-shirt for my husband from the children and a one-off original t- shirt for my 4 year old niece’s birthday present. I love making something plain and boring a little bit more unique!

What has been your proudest achievement at Trimcraft?

I have many small “yes I did that!” moments here, whether its reading a ‘thank you’ email from a customer who I’ve helped, to finishing a demonstration cycle without too many hic ups. It can be many smaller things, like entering a 7 page manual order in a set time frame, to making some really good bonds with some really great customers, they all add up!

What are your favourite hobbies?

My main hobbies are my two beautiful children, they keep me very busy, they are 4 and 2 so keep me up on my toes most of the time. I obviously LOVE to craft when ever I have a free moment! I like Zentangling, it’s a nice way to relax at the end of the day. I also like to TRY and keep fit!

What inspires you to craft?

I just love to create, I see things in shops and think I’m not paying that much for something I’m sure I can make!!! I mainly make gifts, I like to give unique gifts that are personal to the person I am giving too.

What 3 words would best describe you?

Creative, Loud and Caring

If you had a million pounds how would you spend it?

I would pay my Mum and Dad back all the money I’ve ever borrowed. Apart from that there probably wouldn’t be much change!!!  My husband is Australian so I would love to be in a position where we could split our time between the two countries without any financial worries.
