Naomi Whiteley Cert CII
In November 2016 I took a job as an Academy Trainee, previous to this I worked for a hotel in the sales team, as I’m sure you can imagine a little different to insurance but I was looking for something new and challenging. After hearing such good things about M&DH as a company I contacted M&DH who then interviewed me for the position. After my interview I realised that there was a great working atmosphere here and was sure this is where I wanted to develop upon my professional career, I was then offered the Academy Trainee position where I learnt about the business through experiencing the different departments and progressing on a fast track programme, I am now Cert CII qualified and have also recently been promoted to Assistant Sales Support Manager.
Jordan Greenwood Cert CII
In June 2016 I graduated from Southampton Solent University with a degree in Sports and Business Studies. I joined M&DH Insurance Services in August as a part of the Academy Graduate Scheme. From starting in Sales Support, I have now been in the Renewals Team for over a year whilst also becoming Cert CII qualified in December, and Graduating from the Academy in February. After being in the Renewals Team for over a year I have an understanding of where I would like to end up in the business and I know the correct tools and processes are in place to allow me to get there.
Liam Reed Cert CII
After Joining M & DH in September 2016, I have progressed through the Sales Support & Renewals teams to find myself now part of our Commercial Sales Team. Before I completed my CII qualifications here at M&DH I previously worked as a Recruitment Consultant for 2 years. I felt the opportunity which presented itself here was too good to turn down and 12 months down the line I am definitely reaping the rewards. I am just getting started on my career here in an exciting industry, within a Tight Knit Team that is working in cohesion towards a shared goal.
Jack Hunter Cert CII
I left school in February 2013 and started working in retail sales. In May 2017 I decided that I needed a field change and I was offered a chance to join the M&DH Academy team. After seeing the direction that the company was going in there was no way I could turn down such a fantastic opportunity. The culture here at M&DH has been clear from day one and everyone is looking for success. It’s exciting to see all the talent the academy has and it’s been the most positive change I have made to my career. It wasn’t long before I was asked to join the Renewals team and after becoming Cert CII qualified, I am eager to be starting my Dip CII.
Having worked in the hospitality and retail sector, whilst at work, I saw jack and he mentioned that he had joined the M&DH Academy. In that moment I decided that I wanted to have a change in careers and took the opportunity to apply for something that I thought was far out of my reach. A few days later I was interviewed, shown around and immediately decided that this was where I could flourish in a professional environment. The Academy Training scheme offers me the opportunity to gain the knowledge of the insurance business, become credited with the Cert CII Qualification and develop as an individual in a fast-paced industry. I see myself having a bright future at M&DH.
In October 2017 I took a job as an academy trainee, having previously been in full-time football, which was a massive difference from what I was used to, however, I wanted to challenge myself in a new area. After being told that they have an Academy trainee scheme I approached the company who offered me an interview with Alex for the position. Since accepting the job offer I have realised it was a great place to work as the company matched my ambitions. Hopefully being part of the academy trainee programme, I can learn about the business, experience different departments and hopefully work my way up to the sales team on a fast track programme, alongside taking my CII exam.
In October 2017 I decided to take the leap into a new role from the hospitality industry. I know Naomi and how successful she has been at M&DH in such a short space of time and thought this would be a great opportunity for me. As soon as I met with Richard and Alex I knew this was a place I would love to work and thrive in. My current aim is to pass my exams and being Cert CII qualified and progress in M&DH Insurance Services Ltd.
M&DH are proud to announce the launch of the M&DH Academy from the 1st October 2015. We are a growth orientated company, enacting a remarkable level of development across every department within the company, from sales to admin and IT. We are committed to meeting the ever growing needs of every department, and to utilising exposure to every facet of company work as a training ground for progression and development.
You may begin your career at M&DH in our dedicated Sales Support team, but the fluidity and flexibility of the M&DH Academy ensures that should you show the competence, drive and commitment to a career at M&DH, then there is no obstacle to movement to the Sales Support and Renewals teams, and ultimately to your graduation as a qualified specialist construction insurance consultant.
Education and Knowledge development is at the heart of this new initiative, and M&DH are happy to announce that they will sponsor every Academy participant through the Certification in Insurance provided by The Chartered Insurance Institute.
The birth of the M&DH Academy originated in the wake of a number of success stories that have seen recent graduates progress rapidly through the company hierarchy into senior and managerial roles. M&DH understands the benefit of developing ambitious and motivated people and it is our hope that the M&DH Academy will produce the future leaders of the company.
