  • Experience managing and mentoring junior members of the team.

What you’ll get in return for your experience  
A very competitive salary of up to £95,000 (depending on experience). On top of the salary, you'll get good remote working options, private medical care, a very generous discount on all insurance offerings and partnerships, time alloted for personal development and the opportunity for a sizable bonus predicated on personal performance. The working environment has many testimonials which highlight that it is a wonderful place to work, and is head and shoulders above many insurance/finance companies. Their staff retention rate is a good indicator of this.
