Marketing, Communications and Distribution

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!

Since joining Pure I’ve experienced the most positive, friendly conversations with the team that I’m very humbled to be a part of. The working culture and values of Pure is inspiring and like no other place I’ve ever worked. My role is very diverse which is why I admire Marketing, I’m always learning something new and applying my creativity in as many ways possible. Outside of Pure, you’ll probably find me in various coffee shops fuelling my love for coffee or exploring a new city and taking photos of pretty much everything.

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.

I have worked in the equity release sector for 19 years and am very passionate about the industry. I joined Pure in November 2014 - a few months before launch, when there was only a handful of us and it’s been great to see the company flourish and grow into an multi award winning established lender. I very much enjoy the interaction that I have with all customers from the one man bands to large specialist intermediaries and clubs. When not working, I enjoy walking, golfing and am a passionate Burnley FC fan.

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 previously worked as a Business Relationship Manager on a national scale for an equity release specialist law firm. I am really excited about joining Pure, the team have a brilliant reputation in the industry and I am keen to build on that and offer a very high level of support to advisors across the ER market. Outside of work I spend a lot time with my horse Tally and enter competitions most weekends in show jumping and cross country jumping. I also like to spend time with my partner Nick and our two Bengal cats Leo and Luna.

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.

Jane Forshaw

I have over 6 and a half years’ experience working in the financial services industry. I have worked previously in Business Development and PR Consultant roles within corporate companies. These roles included working within specialised markets such as Legal and Medical across the South West and South East territories. I have vast experience in relationship building that has been primarily face to face with clients.

Nicola Watkins

Working for Pure Retirement is so different to anything I have ever experienced. It’s a great friendly atmosphere and I so glad to be part of the team. I am the Relationship Manager for The North and work alongside the BDM’s. Out of work you will find me spending time with my friends, pulling my hair out with my 13 year old daughter Amy and looking after my 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.

Laraib Mahmood

I have recently joined Pure Retirement, but can say I am thoroughly enjoying my time here and look forward to coming in every morning. 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!
