Meet The Team - Adam’s Story

BenI joined Essential Insurance in 2015 as a senior advisor, having already sold protection in my previous role. Although I was in a senior position, I found the training and support to be fantastic - I really hit the ground running. Within 12 months, not only was I performing well, but I was also helping new starters to develop their skills. I applied and was successful to get on to the ‘Essential Management Programme’ that gave me the foundation skills I needed to take on my own team. Since moving to Essential I've been rewarded based on my skill set and not my time served -  it’s not about the length of service here, it's the right person, with the right skills to do the job that they look for - and they give you all the help and support you need to succeed. I am currently working towards my senior status as Team Leader and it’s brilliant working here. The sky really is the limit at Essential!

Why choose Essential?
