Finance Broker
Tell us about your Buddii journey, when it first began and how it has grown?

I was looking for a new challenge after spending over half a decade in customer service
management, and I found this opportunity in Buddii.
I initally joined the Buddii team as the first broker support officer, and their most junior recruit at the
time. My journey rapidly changed pathways to that of trainee broker, and has led me to where I am

Why are you passionate about the finance industry?

In my previous career I discovered that I had a passion for working with people, and during the process of arranging my own finance, I was captivated by the intricacy, and scope of the finance industry. I find being able to work directly with my customers throughout the process is something I enjoy the most. I also love the opportunity to speak to people from a wide variety of backgrounds and industries.

Why is Buddii the best in the business?

It’s my belief that if a business takes care of their team, the team will take care of their customers. As such, I believe that our customers satisfaction is a direct indication of how Buddii treats its team. I have enjoyed my time working at Buddii, and feel lucky to work in a business that cares for, and supports its team.

Tell us about the Buddii team?

Buddii has a unique blend of personalities, and experience levels. This helps collaboration, and creates an overall a positive environment to spend time in. Even when times are tough, there is always a bit of good banter and conversation buzzing around the office.

Tell us about some of the feedback you receive from customers

I like to think our reviews speak for themselves, but I believe that what our customers really appreciate most is the care that the Buddii team provides. On a more personal note, I enjoy having the opportunity to help educate my customers about the world of finance. I’ve found that people really appreciate the insight, and feel they have a better understanding of the process.

Quickfire Round!
What do you do like to do in your spare time?

I enjoy driving, and will often go on adventures to random places on my weekends. I also enjoy spending time hanging out with friends, or just learning about random things.

Do you have any pets?

II don’t currently have a pet, but I used to have a beautiful golden retriever named Sankey. I hope to one day get another pet (most likely a dog haha) when the time is right.

Favourite holiday destination?

My background is European (Slovenian & Italian), and I visited few years back. By far the most beautiful and my favourite destination was anywhere near the Alps, in particular north Slovenia. Closer to home, any beach or mountain will do!

Spirit animal?

I did a few online quizzes and got both a wolf and a zebra…so I guess I am a Zolf?

If you could have a super power what would it be?

It might be cheating but if I could have any super power, I would want the ability to change what superpower I have, kind of like a chameleon.
