Shelley Dimmack: Central Unit Manager

My working day starts with sorting through e-mails and organising the day ahead, prioritising workloads for both data input and central unit.

I assign leads to account executives that come in from both website and Moneypenny leads and find solutions to any problems that may come to light, contacting relevant people in order to fix any issues.

As they arise, I deal with any complaints that are escalated from the central unit team and ensure everyone in the team remains compliant with regard to insurance regulations and advice being given to customers.

I also make sure that all renewals are invited within authorised timescales.

Outside of work I can usually be found on the edge of the football pitch supporting my son. When I do get any other spare time I am a keen horse rider and will often be spotted at all the local agricultural shows throughout the summer helping friends who compete.
