What do you love most about your job?

I enjoy the client contact particularly meeting clients face to face which helps to build a good rapport.  It is good to meet the general public who come from all walks of life so it is never boring and one day is often very different to the next.  The challenge of helping clients is very rewarding. My team colleagues are a great bunch, we all have the same sense of humour and gel together well as a team in the aim of producing the best results.

What do you like to do outside work?

I enjoy cooking, socialising with friends,  art appreciation and the occasional game of golf
