How did you get into the role?
I had been working as a retail manager for some time and really wasn’t enjoying it anymore so when the opportunity arose for me to take voluntary redundancy I embraced it with the aim of studying for a new career. I had been interested in the Financial Services Industry and had several friends who worked as Mortgage and Protection advisers and having talked to them about what the job entailed I decided to take the jump onto this new career path.
What do you love most about what you do?
The people, I love meeting new people and finding out what they do, what their hobbies are, what their goals are and it’s a great feeling knowing that you can help them get there.
How do you describe your job to your family and friends?
Its never boring and so far no 2 days have been the same, which is a good thing.
What ‘powers’ you through the day?
The team around me, they are so supportive and really funny. If there is anything that I am unsure of or need a second opinion on they are always there to help, usually with a funny anecdote alongside.
If you weren’t a mortgage adviser, what job would you love to do?
Travel writer, being paid to go on holiday and tell people about it would be amazing 😊
What’s an ideal weekend for you?
Going away with my husband and exploring somewhere new, especially if there is a cheeky cocktail involved.
The one tune that motivates you?
Candi Staton ‘You’ve got the love’
One thing on your bucket list and why?
Travel America, I’d say backpacking but I think I’m too old for that. I love the parts of America I have seen so far but there is so much more I’d love to see.
