Intermediary Sales & Marketing

Rachel Pease

The great thing about my role is that it’s so varied - always lots going on to get my teeth into, and I get to indulge my creative side which is great. In my spare time I use any excuse to socialise, from games nights to gin club to a Yorkshire take on Come dine with me. I also like to take advantage of Leeds great theatre shows and travel as much as I possibly can - unlikely to fit in a visit to every country in one lifetime but I can try!

Working for Pure Retirement is like no other company I’ve worked for, it has a great atmosphere and is like one big family. My role involves being the face of Pure in the South, meeting brokers and helping them find solutions for their clients. This role means a lot of driving, so this means when I am not working I enjoy nothing more than putting my feet up watching a bit of reality TV or in the gym running off the alcohol from a night out with my friends. I think my colleagues would describe me as loud, challenging, knowledgeable and dedicated.

Craig Faulkiner

Having worked in the equity release sector for over 8 years, I’m fairly new to Pure Retirement. Previous roles include advising day-to-day on equity release and managing a team of 12 equity release advisors. My new role is Strategic Account manager, which is predominantly office based BDM to our 2 largest accounts. The role is challenging, but varied, no 2 days are the same and the autonomy Pure gives to its staff is very rewarding and is giving me a great insight to a part of the industry I’ve never been involved with. We’re a very colleague orientated business who put its staff and clients at the forefront of everything we do. I think my colleagues would describe me as hard-working, analytical & helpful. Outside of work I enjoy playing football, watching most sports (big Leeds Utd & Rhinos fan), avoiding the gym at all costs and travelling.

Hattie Tales

I started with Pure in January 2018, my background prior to this was working as a BDM on a national scale for an equity release specialist law firm. Combining my legal expertise and my knowledge on the lending side of equity release I am able to offer my brokers a wide range of support. I am based in Cheltenham and I work in the South-West here at Pure, I am incredibly passionate about my role, the business and our brilliant industry. When I am not working, I can usually be found with my horses or at the gym. I am very competitive and I like to enter events most weekends with my horses, and I have a pretty good success rate!

Jordan Fudge

Having previously worked for a large Equity Release Intermediary as an apprentice/junior web developer, I moved over to Pure Retirement as I believed it would allow me to further hone my skills that I’d previously developed. There is never a dull moment over here, and everyone is very friendly! Outside of work you can usually find me out with friends, messing around with computers (I’m a bit of a geek) or going on weekend breaks with my Fiancée.

Katie Schofield

Since joining Pure I’ve really enjoyed working within such a friendly, positive and encouraging atmosphere. Everyone here is really friendly and I’m proud to be part of the team. Having previously worked for an Equity release firm, I’m using my previous skills learned to develop the digital journey at Pure Retirement. When I’m not at work you can usually find me chasing after my toddler and my dog Gus, going for long walks with my other mum friends and going on date nights with my husband.

Inken Bushnell

I am super excited to have joined Pure as a relationship manager and excited to be part of a team with such a good reputation and a great culture. Everyone has been so friendly and welcoming and make work fun! Outside of work I am most likely to be at the gym, going out for food or boozy brunch, spending time with friends and enjoying one to many G & T’s.

Out of work you will find me with my teenage daughter Amy, travelling the world or looking after my 2 cats, Ocean and Smudge.

Gareth Ware

Since my arrival I’ve continually witnessed first-hand Pure’s commitment to employee development. With dual backgrounds in retail marketing and music journalism I entered a completely new field yet have always felt I’ve had the autonomy to try new ideas and make the role my own while also having access to all of the necessary tools and support I need, all as part of a wider warm and collaborative culture.

The office environment is extremely friendly and the team are super easy to get along with. My role within the marketing team is exciting as it varies day to day. When I am not working, you are most likely going to find me with family and friends in different food/drink places as I am a massive FOODIE!

Robert Ogden

Having studied web in college, it sparked my interest of the particular field. From working at Pure I have not looked back. I have been to develop my skills and interests through the challenges I face on a regular basis. Outside of work you can find me participating in sports such as football. I also have an interest in music which has lead me to attend various music festivals and events.

Rebecca Kirk

I’ve recently joined the Pure Marketing Team, I’m really enjoying it so far and everyone has been very welcoming. My previous roles have been in financial services and marketing so this role at Pure seemed like a great fit. Outside of work I enjoy cooking, following politics, live music and yoga.

Nakita Moss

I have worked in the Financial Services Industry now for several years and I have a vast amount of experience. I am excited to have joined Pure Retirement and have the opportunity to work with fantastic people, not only within my team but across the business. The atmosphere here is like no other, it’s a great place to work. I joined as a Sales Account Manager within Intermediary Sales in April 2019 and I am looking forward to contributing to our success and continued growth within the Later Life Lending Market.

Daniel Edmondson

I am a confident and tenacious graduate sales account manager with an ever-expanding understanding of account management and client expectations. I started my journey with Pure in June 2019 and really enjoy the friendly and calming atmosphere. The growth and employee focus of Pure Retirement drew me in and I wanted to be part of such a forward thinking, contemporary company. I can truly say that the culture within is like nothing I have ever experienced. With such an intense focus on training and development I believe Pure has what it takes to continue its dominant position in the equity release market.

Simone Doyle

I am currently the newbie of the marketing team, having joined Pure in June 2019. Previously, I have had marketing roles within the retail and hospitality industry, so joining Financial Services was a big change for me! What attracted me to Pure was the variety of my role, there’s something new for me to get stuck into every day and I am constantly learning. Outside of work, you will probably find me walking my dog Zeus, drinking a large glass of wine or booking another trip away with my other half, Italy is next on my list!

Parminder Bhatti

I am the new starter to my team. I have years of experience working in IT within the financial sector. I hope to bring my gained knowledge to a new team as as broadening my current skillset from the team here. I look forward to embracing new technologies and skills. In the short time I have already been here, I can see the company is very much people focussed, be that the employees or the customers. I am enjoying the journey. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my kids and family. I also enjoy long walks, Indian cooking and art. My current challenge is portrait drawing.

Daniel Crowther

Since joining Pure Retirement as an Underwriter in 2017, I’ve then moved on to Customer Account Servicing management before joining the Intermediary Sales team. I spend most of my spare time either training In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or whipping up the odd Duck A L’Orange and I also love going out for a drink with friends, as anyone in the office will be able to confirm - a fact underlined by the fact I was awarded Pure Retirement’s Social Butterfly for 2018.

Nicole Platts

I’ve worked in the Financial sector for several years now and I am now starting my journey at Pure Retirement to excel in my career. When out of the office I like to socialise with friends, do a bit of online shopping, snacking on pate and spending time with my other half.

Danielle Waterhouse

Having worked in the financial services industry for almost 3 years I am excited to be continuing my journey on with Pure Retirement. Since being here I have felt truly welcomed, befriended and appreciated by everyone clearly showing their core values with a family like atmosphere. Outside of work I enjoy plenty of fizz, obsessively buying bargains, lazying with my diva Chihuahua and dancing round with my duster to Britney
