I have been with 1291 since 2017, starting from a small office with two desks for me and Yannick to having two offices in Hong Kong with more than 10 sales partners and an Operation team now. Not to mention, the growing team in Singapore is just amazing!
I remember that was the first time I have been to Zurich when I was sent there for training. Even though I had experience in administrative work, this was the first time I was in a Sales Support role in the Insurance Broker field. The training provided by our Zurich office team just made me feel so supported and enhanced my confidence in performing positively. I can’t forget how welcoming everybody was!
Working at 1291 offers me the opportunity to work in everything solely and as a team. I love the openness and sheer sense of camaraderie here. From setting up the new Hong Kong office from scratch to the first STA Event in Singapore, our 1291 team is being so helpful to me through any obstacles on my way. I feel lucky to have such an all-around involvement, which strengthens my team working, communication, and multitasking skills.
I appreciate how 1291 cares for employee’s personal life and I am so grateful to have the team’s support during my pregnancy. The company has entrusted me with the flexibility to balance my personal life and work which allows me to work to my full potential worry-free as a mother of two. Although some days are very challenging, our team leader will help and mentor us on how to make it happen. I still cannot believe how lucky I am to work for a company that keeps growing and treat you as their family.
In terms of the next steps, I am interested in knowing more about insurance as a Sales Support and I have taken the Insurance Intermediaries Qualifying Examination in Hong Kong to make myself more knowledgeable and ultimately to be able to provide more support to our team in the future.
