Structural defects insurance specialists CRL is encouraging more women with an appetite for adventure to consider a career in the sector as it looks to boost numbers working in the profession.
The firm, which arranges specialist insurance for anyone building a residential property, is flying the flag for women to excel and has a number of women in senior and non-traditional roles.
Intrepid by nature, CRL aren’t afraid to break the mould with stereotypes. The firm is proving it is more important to have the right person in the right job regardless of whether they are male or female.
CRL’s Head of Underwriting Jennifer Hamilton and President of Sales Michele Mauchel are both in senior roles within the business and are proof that the glass ceiling is being smashed at CRL.
Jennifer, who has worked in insurance risk management for 27 years, said: “I joined CRL just over a year ago as an underwriting manager but after a period of rapid growth I was promoted to head up the team.
“In the old days the insurance sector was a man’s world, but thankfully this is changing, especially at CRL. They recognise that it is more important to have the right person for the right role.
“Women have so many skills that they can bring – excellent time management skills, attention to detail, ability to adapt to changing situations and an understanding that the customer comes first.”
