A massive congratulations to one of our Senior Leader apprentices, Helen Hardware (Head of Risk & Compliance) and her team at Aura Life for winning the SME Compliance Team of the Year at the ICA Compliance Awards 2024. The awards "celebrates the outstanding achievements, collaboration, and innovation of compliance and financial crime prevention teams." The assessment process was conducted by independent judges who are prominent figures in the compliance and financial crime prevention community. Aura Life is a funeral plan provider and the compliance team (led by Helen) focus on a 'customer-centric service' to provide excellence in adaptability, risk management, and positive change in the funeral sector.

Helen said:

“We are so proud to have been recognised at the ICA Compliance Awards and named as the winner of the SME Compliance Team. Winning an award of this calibre means a huge amount to everyone involved in this project and area of work. Being recognised in this way, amongst a remarkable cohort of nominees was a brilliant experience. And whilst being highlighted as the winner is a huge moment of pride for the whole team, it is just as important to be part of such a prestigious, award-winning community.”

Pekka Dare, President, ICA, commented:
