Hancock, best known for hosting comedy show They Think It’s All Over, dabbled in the world of broking in 2005 when he joined Earth Mortgages as its sales and marketing director.
But in a recent interview with the Daily Mail, Hancock reveals why he threw in the towel in 2007.
“I did enjoy it, but it made me realise that perhaps there’s a reason why I do the job I do [entertaining] – I’m not particularly good at anything else.” Mole thought his mortgage broking career was all over – it is now.
Vote Winner Boris Johnson and Ken Livingstone may be the front runners for this year’s London mayoral election, but it seems lesser-known candidate Siobhan Benita is proving a hit with brokers. She recently visited the offices of Coreco Group to see its apprentice scheme in full swing and made quite an impression.
Mole hears director Andrew Montlake and his team will be saying “on your bike” to Boris and the others come May 5.
Striking a bum note Mole was busy getting his news fix last week courtesy of folks at The Wriglesworth Consultancy.
Since the beginning of February the PR firm has taken to YouTube to deliver a daily news update on the financial markets.
But it’s now gone in a bold new direction with a jazzy soundtrack that pretty much drowns out the newsreader. Could this be a sign that Wriglesworth staff are set to break into song?
Mole looks forward to the firm’s founder John Wriglesworth attempting his own financial rap.
