Celebrating Growth – Abduraghiem Adams
Next up in our Celebrating Growth feature is 31-year-old Abduraghiem Adams.
Based in our growing office on the outskirts of Cape Town, Abduraghiem has been with Sigma for 12 months and in November was promoted from his Agent role into a new Team Leader position, working with clients on our Debt Buster Campaign.
Leading a team of 10, Abduraghiem connects with our client’s customers looking for ways to help reduce their debt. These are people who can sadly no longer pay their mortgages or loans – some caused by the aftermath of the Covid pandemic.
Seen as one of our many rising stars in South Africa, Abduraghiem is grasping the challenges his new role brings with both hands, and embracing the Sigma values more than ever.
He said: “I have been a people manager in a previous company so I am delighted to have the opportunity now to lead a team here at Sigma.
“Since I joined, and even before my recent promotion, I have embraced the Sigma values and in particular the ‘Always learning’, Always together’ values as I feel they align with my own principles.
“What you get here is the opportunity to learn and grow. You are trusted, encouraged to do things differently and given responsibility that really does build your confidence. That’s something I have really enjoyed as I like to work hard but also grow from a personal perspective. The trust to get on with the job is a huge thing for me.
“I also love managing the team on a daily basis and supporting them with advice, training or just a friendly chat. I am a real people person who wants to give something back so hopefully I am able to repay Sigma by not only achieving for myself, but also helping to prepare future leaders and make sure they are thriving.
“The next few years are hopefully going to continue to be exciting for me. Sigma has given me a second lifeline in my career and I am loving testing myself both personally and professionally.
