Tell us about your career path here at 1ST CENTRAL.

I started in my role a year ago and during this time I have learnt a lot, developed skills and settled into my role with the support of my line manager.


What do you love about your current role?

The thing I love the most about my role is that I get to work with people across the business, in Haywards Heath, Manchester, Guernsey and Gibraltar.


What’s the best thing about 1ST CENTRAL as a company?

The best thing for me is that everyone I have contact with is always friendly and helpful. I have noticed that 1ST CENTRAL cares about the development of staff and their progression, it provides internal opportunities for staff to progress and encourages people to improve and gain skills. I have always found the Executive staff very approachable and this trend seems to filter down into other areas.

When I have some spare time, I love going on days out or weekends away to explore areas I have not yet seen. I also like the odd spa weekend break, but who doesn’t?
