Hi Jackie :-)

Being a bit of a veteran of DLG and it's previous incarnations, I've managed to perform 8 roles in my 19 years of service. In each of these moves, I've been fortunate enough to have had full support from my line manager at the time.
As a manager, I get great satisfaction seeing my team develop and progress their career at DLG. There is a genuine appetite to keep our most talented staff and a real commitment to developing people for their next role at DLG, and when there is no real next step in your current function, there are plenty of functions that you can transfer your skill set to. That's the beauty of this business, there's such a variety of positions and I've been lucky enough to have had full support when I've stepped outside my comfort zone and moved into an area that is new to me. My move from sales to claims is a good example.

It's also worth mentioning that performance measurement is equally made up of the "what" and the "how". So, not having the necessary skillset is not always a blocker for some roles as long as you have the right attitude to learning and approaching a role.
