Hear from our People


The people make FMG a great place to work. Everyone is friendly, approachable and willing to help each other, from all levels of the business and all departments. This is very important to me, since we spend so much time at work.

I joined FMG in 2007 as a Customer Service Representative (CSR) for the Fleet Incident Management (FIM) team and within 6 months had been successful in my application for a Team Leader position. Since then I have had a number of Team Leader roles within other departments, gathering knowledge about all aspects of the business. I now manage the delivery of our Insurance services on behalf of one of our largest insurer customers.

Delighting customers with fantastic customer service is very rewarding. My team and I work very closely together to build relationships with our customers and deliver a professional, expert-level of service every day. Work is a great place to be when you know your team are supported for them to make a real difference to a customer’s day by going the extra mile for them. That is the key motivator which gets me to work bright and early every morning.


A friend worked at FMG and told me what a great place it was to work. I submitted a speculative CV and have been with FMG for over 9 years now. I started off at the bottom of the progression framework within the Third Party Claims Management team and progressed through the different zones to become a specialist within that team. I worked hard, asked questions and grasped new opportunities. When FMG introduced a new service for Insurance Brokers I had the opportunity to help create the new claims handling process. The new service became a great success and when a dedicated Insurance Broker Service team was created I was delighted to become the team’s manager.

FMG has provided great support for my personal development. I have studied for the Certificate in Insurance (CERT CII), a diploma in Personal Injury and Accident Management, and an NVQ in Team Leading. FMG has also encouraged me to attend industry lectures, presentations and workshops to support my knowledge and understanding within the insurance industry.

FMG is a great place to work. The people are friendly, welcoming and happy to help and support each other. I love working at FMG and see myself working here for a long time to come.


My role as Executive Assistant means that every day is full of variety and new challenges, one day I can be preparing for and attending a board meeting and the next I’ll be working on exciting projects such as our recent move to our new head office. I’m also lucky enough to be involved in all our charity initiatives through our fundraising programme, FMGive.

One thing I love about FMG is that we’re passionate and proud of our local area. FMGive is our way of giving something back to the community we work in. I lead the committee that drives forward fundraising activities and encourages colleagues to get involved in charity events such as fun nights out, themed dress down days and of course the occasional bake sale. Last year we raised a whopping £10,000 for our charity partners which I’m incredibly proud of. Giving something back doesn’t always mean donating money either, we also have a volunteering scheme which allows all colleagues to spend a day out of the office, supporting one of our designated charities. It’s a great day out and hugely rewarding.


When I joined FMG in 2005 as a Customer Service Representative, I didn’t realise that this was my first step on a career ladder which would lead me to my first Director’s role at the age of 33. My early months as a CSR involved taking calls from drivers reporting vehicle incidents, which was great preparation for the roles which would follow. I enjoyed the role and seized every opportunity to learn as much as I could about our customers, our suppliers and our internal processes. Each day brought great satisfaction knowing I was in a position to directly help our customers

I was delighted to be offered a Team Leader position the following year. I enjoyed the ‘people’ side of the role, and took this opportunity to hone my skills in leading and coaching teams to bring out the best in them. I steadily progressed through a number of senior roles within the Service Centre, including a spell in our Learning & Development team before becoming Service Centre Manager in 2009. I enjoyed the fast pace of the Service Centre and took every opportunity to enhance the service we provide to customers. My role evolved, leading to a further promotion to Head of Fleet Incident Management (FIM) in 2012. This promotion resulted in more responsibility for larger headcounts, budgets and customer relationships, and the scope to help shape the strategy to deliver service improvements; I thrived on the challenge.

When I was appointed Operations Director in 2017, the scope of my role changed significantly, becoming far more externally focussed. Alongside my colleagues on the Board, I now take responsibility for the strategy, sustainability, competitiveness and success of the entire business. Every day is fast-paced and challenging and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

FMG is a very exciting place to work. When it comes to recruitment, FMG is passionate about recognising, supporting and rewarding those who wish to progress and release their full potential.


I instantly felt welcome at FMG. I was impressed with the atmosphere in the office and the friendly approach of the team leading the interview process.

If you’re willing to work hard, the opportunities are plentiful. My first role was as a Customer Service Representative (CSR), answering telephone calls from customers and suppliers relating to vehicle repairs. I enjoyed going the extra mile to make sure our customers were happy and soon moved to my next role as an Internal Account Manager for our biggest customer. This was a great opportunity to develop my relationship building and process management skills, and when a ‘Team Leader’ opportunity arose, I went on to lead different teams in various departments. I have since progressed to the role of ‘Operations Manager’ of our biggest department, managing a team of 8 Team Leaders.

No two days are ever the same. A typical day for me can include analysing and reporting current performance, supporting our Sales Team in customer meetings and interviewing new recruits for my team. The three essential ingredients to a successful career with FMG are a positive attitude, a willingness to learn at every opportunity and the passion to go the extra mile. Hard work and excellent customer service is rewarded with opportunity at FMG and I personally enjoy assisting others with their career progression and training opportunities.


FMG is not just a place to work; it’s a friendly and supportive community where everybody can just be themselves. I joined FMG in 2017 and immediately knew I had made a good choice.

I had previously enjoyed working in a customer service environment but the FMG systems and working processes were all new to me. This didn’t matter as the other new starters were all in the same boat and we received thorough training and practice on all the systems we would need before taking our first customer calls.

I now spend most of my days talking to customers and suppliers on the phone. I love being able to help them and my team leader is always close by to provide support with any challenges or tricky decisions. My team is based in a large open-plan office which is a hive of activity and has a fantastic atmosphere. People are busy but happy and there is a huge emphasis on supporting one another. Managers sit at desks alongside their teams and everybody plays their part in getting the job done. We definitely work hard and managers are quick to recognize hard work and good results

No two days are ever the same as a CSR. It’s fast-moving, exciting and very rewarding, and I couldn’t imagine it working any other way.


When I left high school I had no idea what I wanted to do as a career. Both my mum and sister worked at FMG so I decided to apply for an Administrator role, I hadn’t got back home following my interview before I received a call offering me the job!

I enjoyed working at FMG right from the start, but I never thought I’d still be here 16 years later! Since starting as an Administrator where I was responsible for filling and photocopying, I progressed to become a Uninsured Loss Recovery (ULR) Handler, helping customers recover their losses following an incident that wasn’t their fault.

I’ve always been hard working and determined, I’ve pushed myself to take on more which has helped me further develop. After taking on a leading role within ULR as a Specialist, I felt I was ready for the next step so when a Team Leader position arose I applied and was successful.

Being a Team Leader, I was responsible for a team of 10-14 handlers which can be challenging at times but also rewarding. I enjoyed supporting my team and helping them to perform in their roles, to progress and achieve their aspirations. In the meantime I completed a Diploma in Management and I’ve recently progressed to Loss Recovery Manager; I’m excited to see what the coming months have in store for me.

I’m proud to work for FMG; it’s a friendly working environment and there are lots of staff benefits – there’s a great share save scheme and I now work compressed hours which gives me a perfect work-life balance. There are lots of opportunities at FMG, even if you don’t have a specific career carved out. If you work hard it really does pay off.


The career opportunities within FMG are endless and many people, like me, find a fantastic new career path which they hadn’t even thought about before. I joined FMG as a fresh new graduate in 2011, my first ‘proper job’ after completing a Business and HR degree at University. It was great to secure a HR role which related to my studies and suited my strengths of working with people and bringing out the best in them

After two years in the role, I progressed to HR Advisor, which meant a greater level of responsibility, taking the lead on many of the operational areas of HR. This role enabled me to build relationships across different areas in the business, and I became interested in stepping in to a more commercial role. After 5 years in HR I applied for a role within the New Business Team and I got the job of Business Development Manager in November 2016.

FMG recognised the value of my transferable skills. I went from promoting FMG to potential new recruits and negotiating in employee relation matters in my HR role, to promoting FMG’s services and negotiating with potential new clients in my new role. As Business Development Manager, I’m responsible for bringing new customers into the business and I’ve been involved in some significant new business wins. One day I may be identifying potential new customers for FMG, the next I could be delivering sales presentations, negotiating contracts and supporting the implementation process.

There are many positives about working for FMG and the commitment to personal development and career progression is definitely one of the best things. The company Share Save Scheme is a great benefit too, giving you the opportunity to share in the business’ success and potentially earn a lot more on your savings than you would do via a standard savings account.
