Here at Great Annual Savings, our people are at the heart of everything we do. So, as part of National Careers Week 2020, we decided to shine a spotlight on some of our GAS family.
In this feature, Jay Ewing, our National Field Manager, explains exactly what it’s like to live #TheGASLife.

Innovative, growing, successful, energetic, fresh.

Rewarding, evolving, interesting.

At this point to see what heights we can take the field sales division and the business as a whole… exciting times and lots still to come.
How would you describe the company culture at GAS?
A large company with a real family feel to it, there’s a buzz here at GAS and you have to be part of it to fully appreciate what I am saying.
Top 3 tips for anybody looking to carve a career in the industry?
From a field perspective…
1. Wear your shoes out. Opportunity won’t find you, you have to go find it!
2. Be passionate about your product, always. No customer buys a product if they don’t believe the salesperson would buy it themselves.
3. Absolutely everyone is an opportunity. The scale of opportunity in this industry is off the charts, speak to every business owner that you can and build that pipeline up then convert them to sales.
Have you achieved anything as a result of working for GAS that you otherwise wouldn’t have?
I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to be part of building the field sales division from scratch with Robbie Shearer, massive opportunity and what a journey it has been so far. There’s still loads to come yet though!
