Q1. Career history before Reich.
Working part time for a local insurance broker whilst completing my A-levels gave me a crucial insight into the Insurance industry. I decided to attend university in Manchester, but it soon became apparent that my heart was set on a career in Insurance. After one year at university, I decided to join Reich in 2008 and can safely say I made the right decision.
Q2. Why did you choose to work for Reich?
The principle reason for joining Reich was the passion for growth; it was clear the Partners had ambitious targets for both organic growth and growth through acquisitions. I was also keen to work for a company that would support me in pursuit of professional qualifications in the absence of a degree and felt that if I applied myself at Reich, the opportunity to forge a successful career would be there.
Q3. Your career with Reich.
In my 9 Years at Reich I feel my career has grown in direct correlation with the company. I started out as a Trainee Account Handler before being promoted to Account Handler and Account Manager to my current position of Deputy Head of Property. In this time I have also completed my professional qualifications with support from the company and have attained the Advanced Diploma in Insurance (ACII) and Chartered Insurance Broker status.
Q4. What’s the best thing about working for Reich?
Our fluidity and flexibility without a doubt. The fact that we remain an independent company means we can make changes to our business and our strategy quickly and efficiently. This means we are always poised to improve ourselves as the industry changes and therefore continue to provide unrivalled service to our clients.
Q5. Where do you see your future within Reich?
The future of Reich is exciting as we look to continue our growth and the success of the past 15 years. I hope to be a big part of the future of the company and I will continue the development of my skills to ensure I can be a part of that success.
