We spoke with Paul Durham to learn more about his experience with McLarens and what attributed to his recognition in McLarens’ global employee award program, McLarens Platinum Circle.
What has been one of the most interesting or rewarding experiences you have had at McLarens?
One of the most rewarding was being nominated for the McLarens Platinum Circle and receiving the recognition. I look forward to connecting with the other winners and colleagues in Dubai. Another rewarding experience was opening an office for McLarens in my hometown of Nottingham, UK. I lead a team of highly motivated, dedicated individuals who have assisted McLarens in its UK growth by offering our high-quality products and services to customers in the East Midlands and Anglia regions. I enjoy working with the team and our clients on a daily basis.
What do you like to do outside of work? Do you have a personal passion?
My personal passion is spending time with my wife, Jane, and my son. Outside of work, I enjoy taking trips with them in our motorhome, touring the UK, meeting up with family and friends for walks, BBQ’s and taking part in group field games.
In the winter, my passion is my Burton snowboard. When time and weather permit, I love to ride in the mountains resorts of Portes du Soleil.
What advice would you give someone starting out in this field or considering it as a career option?
If you’re looking for a routine 9 to 5 career, loss adjusting is not for you. Claims don’t wait, but this challenging work makes each day exciting, different, and also highly rewarding.
Professional industry qualifications are likely to assist you in opening doors for career progression. While it’s never too late to learn, I would strongly recommend that you start your CILA and other professional exams as soon as you can. The longer you leave it, the more difficult it is to balance study requirements with your other work and personal responsibilities.
