How has SME Broker Services helped you in your career development?
SME has opened another path for me in sales. It has given me experience on the phones and it is helping me gain another qualification as well as, hopefully, a long career here as I enjoy the atmosphere here and the people I work with. Individually, it has helped me grow as a person; it has made me more confident and given me a bit more self-belief that if I work hard, I can do anything I want and push myself to try something maybe that I wouldn’t think that I’m good at or would struggle in.
What has been your biggest accomplishment in both SME Broker Services and life in general?
My biggest accomplishment at SME is getting a lead on my first day as anyone will know your first day on the phones is struggle
and I just remember stressing because I had Rikki (Broker Development Manager) pointing to the script and whispering to me what I had to say.
