What’s the most challenging thing about working here?
Internally we set a very high standard for ourselves and we’re expected to meet that standard every time and at pace. It’s for a good reason; we put our customer at the core of all of our decisions and everything we do needs to benefit them. We need to make sure that what we do is the best every time so we can help our customers to save a lot by doing very little. If there's a sudden change in the market we need to be able to react to that quickly without compromising on quality.

How has your career developed during your time at Moneysupermarket Group?
I’ve been at Moneysupermarket Group for almost 5 years so there’s been a fair amount of change and progression. My role has evolved from being pure implementation to more of a hybrid, with a foot in the world of planning whilst continuing to upskill technically and now I’ve moved to a more senior role in the company, I’m also a line manager. Alongside the more techy training we’re also encouraged every year to set personal development goals for ourselves. I’ve been able to spend time learning front-end web development coding, even though it’s not part of my day-to-day. Every year there are new challenges and you’re pushed to improve which is such a wonderful environment to nurture a career in.
