    "Union Insurance Services is the best place I've worked since becoming a professional performer. The people are lovely and the atmosphere in the office is always so positive and lots of fun! The job is super flexible, fits around auditions so I never miss out and the pay is great too with commission and bonuses which I use towards going to workshops and classes. If you are looking for an employable place to work with a great stable income that fits around your studies, auditions or even rehearsals then Union Insurance Services is definitely the place for you." Kiera-Marie Somers - London

    “I have been with Union Insurance Services since February 2014. I was the last person in the first group to make a sale, which was red and this knocked me back for a week and half, but with the support from my Manager Mike and Supervisor Lewis I graduated a week later. The office is full of diverse people and the atmosphere with in the call centre is electric. There are lots of internal opportunities to progress through the company and increase your skills.”  Lee Powell - Wakefield

     "Working at Union Insurance Services these last few years has been great. The relaxed environment makes working with all the different departments such a breeze. As part of the IT Department, I am constantly dealing with new projects which are being driven by the needs of all departments, across all aspects of the business and I get to see how they work and what’s important to them. The dynamic environment and ever changing requirements allow me to always be involved in different work, with no 2 weeks the same. My colleagues are all like minded, so the social side of working at Union Insurance is always high on the list of priorities. All-in-all, an awesome company to work for." Darren Gower-Jackson - London

It is a place where you have an opportunity to earn great money in either part time or full time employment. You will not only learn valuable work experience but great life skills.” Andrew Malcolm - London

I also like the fact that your progress is very much important to them and they make sure training and feedback is given on a regular basis.” Bernadette Serrano - London

    “Having worked at Union Insurance Services for nearly 2 years, I can honestly say the camaraderie is second to none.  The sense of ‘team’ that is encouraged within Sales maintains a positive and fun environment, even on those challenging and less busy days. Managers show a genuine concern for the welfare of their staff whether a newcomer or existing agent.” Pamela Wernham - London

What I love is that the other people I work with are all like minded, fun, outgoing and driven. I have made some firm friends while working at Union Insurance Services.“ Rebecca Tan - London
