Having worked for Arnold Clark Insurance Services for over 13 years, I decided to make the move into sales in 2014. At first this seemed very daunting! But after attending Sales Academy, I really started to gain knowledge of the sales process.

My training continued in the branch until I began selling on my own. I’ve now done this for two years and it has built my confidence and given me a lot more opportunities.
