In a bid to support employees, the scheme offers professional training in order to deepen and extend their expertise.

The FSCS are headed by Chief Executive Mark Neale, who is dedicated to building rapport and a positive working relationship at all levels of the organisation. Mark sits in the open plan office space with all the staff, and posts weekly blogs to engage with members of the team.
