All Together Better People - Jamie Coskry

In the first of our All Together Better People series for 2022, we speak with Jamie Coskry of T L Dallas.  

 

Jamie was the recent winner of the UNA Newcomer Award following a varied career path to get to where he is today.

As mentioned, you recently won the UNA Newcomer of the Year Award, tell us a bit about how your career to date brought you into the world of insurance…

My career to date has been rather varied. Progressing from rugby into a career in law was the first major change. Then for my next challenge I entered the world of Insurance. My teamworking skills through years of rugby and analytical skills brought from law allowed me to make a fairly smooth transgression into Insurance. I believe having different core skills has allowed me to adapt and grow within this industry within a relatively short period of time.

This year, we are taking our support of the mind to the next level, championing Insurance United Against Dementia, and Nordoff Robbins. So what are these charities all about? And why have we chosen them?
