Meet The Team - Ben’s Story


I joined Essential as a trainee and after the thorough training programme I felt confident that I could identify and understand the client’s needs and provide sound advice. Within nine months I was promoted to a mentor role and coaching others, a chance I relished and opportunity I’m grateful for. Before the end of my second year I was given another opportunity, this time to manage my own team – and so far, with the support of the management team, its going well. Joining Essential was the best move I ever made! They’ve given me the opportunity and encouragement to show them what I am capable of!
