I studied Politics & Sociology at the University of Worcester. I want a dynamic career filled with constant learning and fulfilment and I won’t settle for anything less!
What makes Endsleigh a great place to make your career?
I did my research on which companies offered the most competitive graduate schemes, defining competitive as those schemes which have the most resource to really fill out your employability and make you a real asset to any business. I then came across the Endsleigh Graduate Scheme, and was immediately drawn in to Endsleigh’s commitment to supporting students. The comprehensive training and support available was a unique selling point for me so I decided to apply.
What makes up your department?
My department and role are very dynamic. I look at increasing customer/business value through in depth web analytics by spotting trends in data, and presenting this data to other departments. It’s all about understanding customer behaviour. I am a firm believer in the power of analytics, and if a colleague approached me with a suggestion, the powerhouse of analytics can seek to prove or disprove their insight.
What makes the training and development for you?
It’s simply fantastic and I would advise any graduate who is looking for a challenge to seriously consider applying for the Endsleigh Graduate Scheme. The nice thing about the training is that it is done with your fellow graduates, so you can really get to know each other and support throughout the scheme. Endsleigh is also generous in offering courses which can really strengthen your employability and skills.
How would you describe the culture at Endsleigh?
Very friendly, team focused, and the belief that you can really make a difference.
What makes Endsleigh the best place for you?
The scope of opportunity I have to make real changes in a live environment. I love the fact that Endsleigh is one of the first insurance companies in the UK to adopt a serious web analytics tool, and I relish the chance to prove that web analytics are the key to success, whatever the business.
What advice would you give to undergraduates looking for a place to make their career?
Be commercially aware: think outside the box. An impressive undergrad will check out Google news, look at market related e-newsletters - see what the business is doing NOW and focus on what they can bring to the business. Be confident and remember there are thousands like you, but none like yourself!
