Maria tells us a bit about herself and her role in the business...
Name: Maria Potts
Role: Broker Sales Support Supervisor
Length of time with business: 3 years 2 months
1. Briefly explain your role
I look after a small broker sales support team based in the Trafford Park office, providing daily support to my team, our brokers and Broker Development Manager's. I am also responsible for developing my team to ensure they contribute to the success of the business by taking responsibility for the management of their own portfolio of brokers.
2. What do you enjoy most about your role?
The people - I work with a great bunch of people both here and in the operations centre in Hessel. Everyone works extremely hard but there is always time for a laugh and a joke.
3. How would you describe your work ethic?
Conscientious and customer focused. I like to think I have a “can do” attitude. I also think it is important to let your hair down every now and again!
4. If you could be an animal what would you be and why?
I think it would have to be a cat – I currently have two of my own and they have a very good life, eating, sleeping and coming and going as they please!
5. If you weren’t in work now, what would you be doing?
I would love to be relaxing on a sunny beach, margarita in hand. However I recently got engaged, so I would probably be making plans for my wedding.
6. Which of your colleagues would you like to nominate to feature next in meet the team and why?
I would like to nominate the Office Manager for Hessle, Louise Tabor. Louise has worked for the business for many years in a variety of roles and I would like to know a little more about her.
