Provident self-employed Agents – in their own words
Provident’s self-employed Agents enjoy running their own businesses, their way, with our support. Each one is different, and they all have their own stories to tell. Here are just a few.
“I’ve been an Agent for 12 years now, and I love it. I get real pleasure from being someone my customers look forward to seeing because I’m making their lives better. I do know, though, that if I get on with my customers then collecting their payments will be easier, and that’s how I get paid.
“I get loads of advice from the local Development and Area Managers – they have a lot of empathy. They know it isn’t a 9-5 job, so they are there if I need them, even at weekends. I also really like the new app for my smart phone, which has taken a lot of the paperwork off my hands – that gives me more time for customers.
“I love being my own boss – it’s hard work, make no mistake, but it’s very rewarding. I’d recommend it to anyone as long as they’re prepared to put the work in. If you’re thinking of becoming an Agent, the best thing you can do is go out with one and see how they work first-hand.”
