M&DH are proud to announce the launch of the M&DH Academy from the 1st October 2015. We are a growth
orientated company, enacting a remarkable level of development across every department within the company, from
sales to admin and IT. We are committed to meeting the ever growing needs of every department, and to utilising
exposure to every facet of company work as a training ground for progression and development.
You may begin your career at M&DH in our dedicated Sales Support team, but the fluidity and flexibility of the
M&DH Academy ensures that should you show the competence, drive and commitment to a career at M&DH, then
there is no obstacle to movement to the Sales Support and Renewals teams, and ultimately to your graduation as a
qualified specialist construction insurance consultant.
Education and Knowledge development is at the heart of this new initiative, and M&DH are happy to announce that
they will sponsor every Academy participant through the Certification in Insurance provided by The Chartered
The birth of the M&DH Academy originated in the wake of a number of success stories that have seen recent
graduates progress rapidly through the company hierarchy into senior and managerial roles. M&DH understands the
benefit of developing ambitious and motivated people and it is our hope that the M&DH Academy will produce the
future leaders of the company.
Deighton Masters Cert CII
In July 2018 I joined M&DH as an Academy Trainee, prior to this I had been
working for a large energy supplier dealing with both Residential and Business customers. I was given the
opportunity to join the M&DH Academy, which I believed to be more beneficial for my career as It had
been explained that I can progress and develop my professional career with the recourses M&DH have.
Within the Academy Trainee Programme, I am hoping to learn more about the insurance sector whilst developing
upon my professional career.
Naomi Whiteley Cert CII
In November 2016 I took a job as an Academy Trainee, previous to this I worked for
a hotel in the sales team, as I’m sure you can imagine a little different to insurance, but I was
looking for something new and challenging. After hearing such good things about M&DH as a company I
contacted M&DH who then interviewed me for the position. After my interview I realised that there was a
great working atmosphere here and was sure this is where I wanted to develop upon my professional career, I
was then offered the Academy Trainee position where I learnt about the business through experiencing the
different departments and progressing on a fast track programme, I am now Cert CII qualified and head up the
Sales Support team!
Charlotte Edwards Cert CII
In October 2017 I decided to take the leap into a new role from the hospitality
industry. I know Naomi and how successful she has been at M&DH in such a short space of time and thought
this would be a great opportunity for me. After my interview I knew this was a place I would love to work
and thrive in. I can see myself having a bright future here, with the path I am on there is no failing.

Morgan Braud Cert CII
After hearing about the M&DH Academy, in that moment I decided that I wanted
to have a change in careers and took the opportunity to apply for something that I thought was far out of my
reach. I was soon interviewed, shown around and immediately decided that this was where I could flourish in
a professional environment. The Academy Training scheme offers me the opportunity to gain the knowledge of
the insurance business, become credited with the Cert CII Qualification and develop as an individual in a
Amy Moore Cert CII
After hearing such good reviews of the working environment at M&DH, I applied
in May 2018 for a role to commence upon completing my university course. In July 2018 I took a job as an
M&DH Academy Trainee, prior to this I graduated from Northumbria University with a degree in Business

Alex Anderson Cert CII
In September 2019 I joined the M&DH Academy as a trainee. After leaving
Towergate Insurance I decided it was time to focus on studying my cert CII, whilst still being able to
progress my career in insurance. M&DH offered me this opportunity. With providing me support towards my
cert CII qualifications and being able to work for a company where your hard work makes you more than just a
cog in the wheel is an offer too good to refuse. Working for M&DH has kept me busy and there is a
fantastic working environment here. I am excited to continue to expand my knowledge within insurance and
further my career here.
Charlotte Jackson-Smith Cert CII
In July 2020 I was given the opportunity to join M&DH as a graduate
academy trainee. Prior to this I graduated from the University of Lincoln with a Criminology degree.
Stepping away from this I was keen to learn new skills and develop my knowledge whilst working to gain
further qualifications. Having no previous experience of the insurance sector, the academy has allowed
me to learn about the business through shadowing different members of the team in each department,
whilst working to become credited with the Cert CII Qualification to gain the knowledge required. I am
looking forward to my future development and to embark upon a fulfilling career with M&DH where the
opportunities offered for progression are exceptional.
Harry Gray Cert CII
In October 2020 I joined M&DH as an Academy trainee, Prior to this I had
no insurance background and come from the construction industry as an electrician, As you can imagine
it’s very different to insurance but I wanted to do something more challenging and rewarding. I
have many ambitions in the M&DH academy the main being to progress into the sales team and even
maybe become a senior salesman. After my interview I realised this was the place I wanted to gain my
insurance knowledge and progress in my career.
Alex Horn Cert CII
Before deciding to be part of the M&DH academy I was working at a trade
merchant. I had been searching for the perfect career that best suited me. After trying various
construction roles and even a job in teaching primary school children, I came across a role being
advertised for M&DH insurance academy. After doing some research I realised how appealing this job
role was and was lucky enough to become part of it! I want to go as far as I can and push myself to the
max. Whatever role that leads me to, I’m happy! In line with my ambitions I would like to be a
part of the sales team eventually, as I said whatever route that takes me on to get there, I’m
pleased to be on the rewarding journey.
Liam Phillips Cert CII
I recently graduated from Bournemouth university, gaining a degree in sport
psychology. After choosing law modules in my final year, I found that I enjoyed this more than the
coaching side, and so chose to pursue a career in a more professional environment. I found that a career
in Insurance allowed me to use knowledge I gained in my law modules, and M&DH was the perfect place
to progress and learn the Insurance industry in more detail.
