“Living in Nottingham, I wanted to work a little closer to home and when a friend told me about the position I jumped at the chance. I’m settling in very well so far, still adjusting to new procedures but the team have been very welcoming and I’m looking forward to having my own dedicated group of clients that I can build relationships with and help grow.
“The opportunity for career progression was really important to me and as Russell Scanlan has Chartered Insurance Broker status, I will soon start studying for my CII certification.”
