How has your role changed whilst being at the KR Group?

I started as part of the group services working in the Business Monitoring Team, but aspired to join Compliance. However, an Underwriting role came up in more 2 life and it really took my fancy, so I decided to apply. It’s great! It’s given me the chance to further my career and learn a lot of new skills.

What attracted you to work for the KR Group?

Several things, but I was particularly impressed with the Trustpilot ratings. It made a nice change to see a financial company treating their customers that well, and I thought the same would apply to their staff… And I was right!

What’s the atmosphere at KR Group like?

Fun but professional. There’s a real sense of being part of the team and no success is seen as small – it gets recognised by your managers and even directors.

What do you like most about the day to day job?

I love our team updates, and I know some people just say it, but I genuinely learn new skills every day.

What team perks do you get?

We get to go to the races which is always a good team outing. It means there’s a nice work life balance with colleagues.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

My husband and I enjoy taking weekend breaks in the UK with our five-year-old daughter.
