What is the best thing about working at Comparison Tech?
I appreciate the training programme I am on as well as the medical insurance benefits which I have taken advantage off.
When you’re not helping connect customers to brilliant deals, what do you like to do?

I used to run an online shop selling folky clothes.

You need to be focused and have immaculate attention to detail.

My cousin. She has beaten cancer twice and lives with Multiple Sclerosis. She still manages to lead a fulfilling professional and personal life. I love her positivity and zest for life.
Do you have a preferred way of working?
I have struggled working exclusively from home, so I am keen on the hybrid working arrangement we are trialling.
Describe what it’s like to work in your office?
It is a lot of fun. We have a good chemistry as a team. We have a lot of individual responsibilities, but we make sure to connect and share ideas.
