What is your job role?
What did you want to be when you were younger?
Football or a cricket manager.
What is your favourite food?
Definitely curry, ideally the Railway Lamb from Dabbawals!
What is the most embarrassing injury you’ve received?
I broke my ankle when being run over by my best friend. I hobbled home to watch Match of the Day and only later realised it was broken in several places.
What is your greatest inspiration?
My faith in Jesus. I love Easter where we celebrate his sacrifice for us on the cross.
What three items would you take with you to a deserted island?
Other than my family (there are four of them so it would be tricky to know which one to leave behind!), I would bring my bible, hockey stick and a ball.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I love helping clients understand their financial situation better and their relief when they know they are going to be okay. I also feel we add real value when we help people enjoy spending their hard earned capital rather than feeling guilty when using it. We have three choices with our money – spend it now, spend it later or give it away. Our job is to help people make wise decisions about what they want to do combined with what they can afford to do.
What is something you find challenging about your work?
Paperwork. Remembering there are people at the end of the paper definitely helps, but this is certainly a “work in progress”.
