Technical Services

Simon Hayton

Why do I travel over a hundred miles a day across the Pennines? Because working at Pure is worth it. From the top down we’re passionate about what we do and how we do it. Most importantly, we do it with integrity. I’ve worked nearly 20 years in Financial Services across processing, administration, sales, underwriting and operations for both brokers and lenders and there aren’t many companies like Pure. What do I do? Ultimately, I try to; add value wherever I can, improve processes, maintain systems, give guidance, answer the difficult questions, support innovation, and play more guitar. When I’m not working you’ll find me in my home city of Manchester either rehearsing with my band “Voodoo Cartel”, mixing the odd cocktail or out and about seeing live music.

Moving to Pure in 2013 from a secure job with an established financial institute was a huge gamble but looking back today I am extremely proud I did. From being part of a company consisting of only five members in 2013 to Forty-two in 2017, Pure has developed in to an established name in the equity release market and being part of this change has been fantastic. From a personal point of view Pure has given me opportunities to develop and has supported my career aspirations, something I have never really experienced from previous companies. Starting as an underwriter I worked my way up to being part of the newly established technical services team. My role in this team allows me the opportunity to move Pure forward and to keep us competitive with our competition. Outside of Pure my time is usually spent with the family, however I do try to have a cheeky pint every Friday in Headingly!

I joined Pure in April 2015 and never looked back! Pure is always evolving by adapting to change, recruiting people and creating new roles. Plus, I have great colleagues, who all make ‘the daily grind’ pretty awesome! As well as developing itself Pure cares about developing it’s people. I started in the Broker support team, moved into a Case handler role and was fortunate enough to explore my skill set in a way I hadn’t been able to elsewhere. Pure helped me grow and develop, as a result I’ve now moved into an IT role in Technical Services, which I love. When I’m not working I enjoy going to the cinema, gym and pub. But my favourite thing is getting in the garden, digging stuff up and moving things about, much to the dismay of the other half!

I joined Pure Retirement friendly and professional family in April 2017 and my role is to be the “face” and “voice” of the initial application process, carry out the initial checks of the application and keep everyone updated of the application progress. Before joining Pure Retirement I worked for a law firm dealing with re-mortgages. After work I enjoy spending time with my family, watching movies, learning Spanish and travelling.

Zach Hodkinson

I joined Pure in May 2017, having worked in equity release for 4 years previously. I’ve had a really good experience so far & everyone gets on so well. Pure really value and encourage their staff and there is a real drive forward for growth and improvement. I support Burnley FC and also enjoy watching formula one and a game of poker now and then.

Jacob Emmerson

I started at Pure in September 2017 and couldn’t be happier, as soon as I step foot in the building I was greeted with warm welcomes from everybody. Working at Pure gives me the opportunity to expand my skills every day and improve my work ethic. In my free time I am usually in my room playing video games or out going to see the latest films at the cinema with my friends.

Tiffany Grant

Having worked in Equity Release for a couple of years before joining Pure I was attracted by the opportunity to join a fast growing company that really values its culture and people. It has been almost two years now and I really enjoy the pace at which things move whilst working alongside a great group of people. In my spare time I enjoy socialising with friends and family, live music, festivals and planning the next trip away.

Peter Susse

I started working at Pure May 2018. I joined Pure to help deliver modern software applications. The team here is fantastic with a diverse and broad range of knowledge. So far the work has been fast-paced and diverse, allowing me to draw on my experience of 9+ years as a software developer. When not at work I enjoy traveling and socialising with friends.

James Bruce

I wanted to work somewhere that offered creative freedom and allowed me to pursue my passion for writing software, ensuring I feel proud of the software I produce and hopefully making the lives of staff and customers who use our software better and easier. Joining Pure Retirement has given me all the above, and they nurture an atmosphere of productivity and innovation. When I’m not coding, I’ll usually be out in the woods with my girlfriend walking our 2 dogs - Bella and Molly, reading, or when possible, squeezing in some time on the Xbox.

Ibrar Mumtaz

As an engineer, I am always looking for a company that will help me grow my technical skillset and still allow me to be relevant in my field as well as plotting a path forward my career. It’s also very important to me that I make a positive impact on a company and help them realise their technical ambitions and influence their long-term growth strategy. So, when an opportunity came up to continue my work as a sub-contractor for Pure, it was the easiest decision I have ever had to make and have not looked back since.

Matthew Sharp

Mondays are no longer boring. After graduating from university I wanted to put my skills to the test. I found my feet at Pure Retirement where my role as a software developer does just that. I love a good challenge and with a fantastic support group I have the ability to develop and broaden my scope of adroitness (I had to Google that word). I feel extremely comfortable with my environment, surroundings and colleagues leading to good productivity to deliver simple and innovative software. Outside of work I’m keeping up to date with the latest tech, playing video games, watching planes and getting lost to do some photography.

Georgios Koskinas

I joined Pure as a software developer in August 2018. I am extremely delighted to be part of a fast growing and innovative company that invest in its people for success. A few months in and I already feel that I am developing my skills in a very supportive and motivating environment. In my free time I enjoy playing video games or the guitar, and every now and then travel somewhere new.

Jake Mangan

After graduating from university I told myself that I wouldn’t settle for anything less than a company that would actively help me to develop my expertise as a software engineer. Fortunately I was offered a full-time position at Pure Retirement and since joining it has become apparent how well this company looks after their staff. As a software engineer I am constantly encouraged to improve my skill set and to construct my own solutions to problems. However I am backed by an incredible team that I know I can always turn to for advice if needed. I couldn’t have picked a better company to help kick-start my career.

As a Data Analyst for Pure, I find ways to extract meaningful insights from our data, using technical and statistical techniques, and present these findings visually. There is always the potential to hone our methods further and come to even more insightful conclusions. This potential makes the role both interesting, creative and rewarding.
