Harriet Allen - Senior Business Developer, Allianz Insurance PLC (Law, 2014)

The law school has a good reputation and is a good distance away from where I grew up in North Yorkshire. I liked that it was in a row of converted houses, it didn't feel foreboding or intimidating. I'm really proud to have studied there; I feel like I have been part of a great student fraternity. I went to Australia and interned for Greg Piper MP in New South Wales as his research assistant. I then came back to the UK and worked as a Paralegal for an Industrial Disease expert. I then joined Allianz as a Management Trainee before becoming a commercial motor underwriter and team leader. In September 2018 I became a Senior Business Developer in Southampton responsible for growing a panel of 20+ brokers which is currently at £17m of Gross Written Premium. Newcastle Law School gives you the opportunity to develop essential life skills, not just career skills, in a supportive environment.
