Meet the Team | Laura Stewart

Although only being with us a short time, Laura has already become an important part of our team.

How long have you worked here?

I joined Ring Associates in mid-October 2017.

What is your job title and what does your role entail?

I’m currently Personal Assistant to 5 advisers, spanned across Mortgages, Financial Planning and Wealth Management.

Are you currently studying for any professional qualifications?

Not currently, but I do anticipate doing so once my 6-month probationary period ends.

Do you already hold any professional qualifications?

Nothing ‘official’ other than GCSE’s & A-Levels. All other training/qualifications I have completed have been ‘in house’ and employer specific.

What did you do before joining Ring Associates?

I worked as an adviser at Santander for over 10 years, I then spent 2 years as a financial adviser at the Post Office. The last 3 years I spent working night shift on reception in A&E.

What do you enjoy outside of Ring Associates?

I have 2 young children, so I enjoy spending time together as a family. My husband and I also like to enjoy quite an active social life with our friends.

Where do you see your future at Ring Associates?

I would love to become a Mortgage Adviser one day.

What do you like about working at Ring Associates?

I love the people – it’s nice to come to work and smile and laugh, even when you at your busiest. The company has a great work and social ethic. It is really refreshing.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

I once took part in an unsuccessful world record attempt for fitting as many pickled onions in my mouth as possible. In the end, I was 3 short!
