Meet the new faces behind CPP Group UK: Helen Cowling, Product Executive
We hear from Helen Cowling, Product Executive at CPP UK
What attracted you to the role at CPP UK?
After working at my last company in the insurance sector for 21 years, I fancied a new challenge. I was told that CPP UK were actively hiring, and after researching the available role, the company and most importantly its values, I was really keen on becoming part of the company and its future.
CPP’s values really stood out to me: these were curiosity, being brave and working together. I like that you are given the freedom to try different approaches to tasks and challenges – in fact, it is actively encouraged to be brave and push the boundaries!
Helen Cowling, Product Executive for CPP Group UK
What have your first few weeks been like in your new role?
The first few weeks have been busy! I’ve met so many people virtually across the group and been made to feel extremely welcome. It’s been a huge eye opener for me – I’ve only been involved in general insurance before, so to be able to participate in such a varied range of work has been great.
What has it been like settling into the team virtually?
The team have been great. I’ve met loads of people via video link and I was able to have a chat with them to understand what they do and their own thoughts about the company and its vision. It’s also been great meeting their pets! I am now very much looking forward to meeting them face to face in the office.
Can you provide some insight on the projects you’re working on?
I work within the UK product team. My main role will be looking after the current Locksmith Network which relates to our Key Insurance product and in-house claims team, and on-boarding new locksmiths. However, I’ve also been there to support the wider team with their projects and reporting, as well as offering some support to operations.
What are you looking forward to achieving at CPP?
I’m looking forward to understanding the different ways in which CPP operates, how I can help and fit into its vision for the future. It has a great culture and support network, and I hope to be able to add to that.
