"I joined Direct Life in 2015 alongside my college work and back then this job was only a part-time role for me to earn some money. It’s now three years later and I have progressed from being a part-timer to being a Team Leader, running my own team of Express Underwriters.

I wouldn’t have been able to exceed in something I really enjoy doing without the constant support, training and flexibility the Company has given me. "
