Nick Murphy

Nick Murphy

I have been an NFU Mutual Agent for 20 years and prefer to specialise in commercial and farm insurance having graduated from Nottingham University. I like to help my customers with their general insurance and assisting customers by ensuring that they receive any help they require in complying with health and safety training and planning. I generally meet with my customers at their premises so we can discuss your requirements and provide recommendations that are relevant to your needs. I am working towards my CII qualifications. Outside work I enjoy keeping fit and my three boys provide me with a challenge to try and keep up. expand text

I assist in the general day to day running of the office and organise Nick’s diary and workload. I am the main point of contact if Nick is out of the office and I will endeavour to assist with any queries you may have. I have several years of experience in an administrative role and am from a farming background which helps me assist Nick in his NFU work, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested in joining. expand text

Insurance Adviser
I have been working in the Blackburn office since October 2014. I can help with all motor and personal insurance enquiries and I am working towards completing my farm licensing. Although NFU Mutual has a dedicated claims department, one of my roles here is to assist customers in setting up new claims and to give as much help and advice as possible with their ongoing claims. I can also assist you with any NFU membership enquiries. Outside of work I am an active member of Longridge Young Farmers and thoroughly enjoy being involved in all things YFC! expand text
