The thing I love the most is the diversity of the role and the positive working environment we have here. At Spencer Clarke Group, there is a great balance of work and banter which definitely helps with keeping the team feeling uplifted and well connected.
What motivates you at work?
Job satisfaction is my biggest motivator, I like to know that I am doing well in my role. The fact that there is such a good bonus structure in place really motivates me to hit my targets and it also encourages me to cope under pressure too.

Tell us about your career path so far
Since leaving school, I have been in constant education until the age of 27 which was now 2 years ago. I have various qualifications including 2 degrees, with one being in Public Services and the most recent in Counselling and Psychotherapy. During my latest degree I was able to enhance my people and communications skills, which I now use in all areas of my life, including my new role at Spencer Clarke Group.
How would your colleagues describe you?
I’d say my colleagues would describe me as passionate, and they might also say that I am a bit of a perfectionist!
Where are we most likely to find you outside of work?
Outside of work, you would find me walking the Wainwrights in the Lake District or out having fun with my friends! Either way, I’ll always find somewhere for some nice food and a drink!
Tell us something we’d never guess about you!
I am obsessed with war films; my favourite is probably Hacksaw Ridge.
What’s next for you at Spencer Clarke Group?
I am going to focus on becoming confident and familiar with everything that my job on Compliance entails. I’d love to be able to support as many candidates and consultants as possible in order to feel like I am fulfilling my role here at Spencer Clarke Group.
