Meet Matt Duncan
Name: Matt Duncan
What do you do at Stan Sherlock Associates?
I am the supervisor for the Yorkshire Building Society Agency operating on the ground floor at the SSA. I also manage and run the front desk of SSA so if you're calling or popping into our office my face will be one of the first you see.
What do you enjoy most about being a member of the business support team?
I enjoy the versatility and diversity of tasks I complete in my day. I love to be busy so like that there is a constant stream of incoming work to be done. We have a great team throughout the building and my amazing colleagues make the day that bit brighter!
What has surprised you the most about working in Financial Services?
I was most surprised by how multifaceted financial services is. I have worked in many different sectors and most businesses are the same when you get down to the bare bones of it. I was surprised however at how many different elements and components of a client's life are taken into consideration when dealing with their finances. I had always assumed that because we handle sensitive data there would be of care and diligence but I had no idea the scale and depth of care.
Describe yourself in 3 words:
Funny, confident and articulate
Would your family use the same three words?
I was unfortunate enough to be sat with my parents when I was writing this so I bravely asked them the question. They gave me more than three words, so, I selected the most flattering from the plethora provided. They said funny, capable and confident. There were more which weren't as flattering but I was selective.
If you had to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, but all your human needs—such as food and water—were taken care of, what two items would you want to have with you?
For a gay man I am surprisingly low maintenance (contrary to popular belief)! I would want probably a guitar or something to play music on. I listen to music all of the time and I honestly couldn't live without it.
If you could choose any superpower, what would you choose and why?
I would have said the power to stop time. However, I have this fear that if I stopped time everyone else would stop ageing and I would age at a normal rate. I decided a long time ago that stopping time as a superpower had too many variables! So instead, I choose teleportation. I could finish work and teleport to New York for dinner, then go for a walk on the beach in Cyprus then teleport home to bed.
How can you help me?
In any way I can. It's both simple and cliché but it's the truth. I will be there to answer calls or greet you as you arrive. I can help with anything related to the Yorkshire Building Society and if you arrive or call for one of our amazing advisers, I will do my best to get you someone who can assist you with whatever your needs are.
