Our team

Naomi Parker-Jones

Naomi Parker-Jones Cert CII

Senior Partner
I have been the Senior Partner since 2013; having joined the Sedgemoor office (known then as the Bridgwater office) in 2006. I specialise in looking after our large accounts and visiting new clients, so I’m usually out and about on client visits. I like to make insurance understandable to my clients and I enjoy helping my clients make informed choices about how they protect themselves and their families and businesses. I am ably assisted by my business partner Ros Burridge and the team based in the office. In addition to my role as Senior Agent, I am also Group Secretary for the Sedgemoor Group of the National Farmers Union. In my spare time I enjoy watching my little boy grow up on a dairy farm and if there is any time left after that, I like to spend it with my horses and dogs (oh and the husband). expand text

I am also a Group Secretary for the Sedgemoor Group of the National Farmers Union. In my spare time I like to compete my horses on the eventing circuit and enjoy activities with my local riding club.

Office Manager
I have been with NFU Mutual's Sedgemoor office since 2009. I am based within the office ensuring that everything runs smoothly bearing in mind the Partners spend the greater proportion of their time out on the road on client visits. My focus is ensuring that a high standard of knowledge and customer service is maintained to deliver you a great customer experience every time, so I spend a lot of time coaching, training and developing the team. I enjoy finding effective solutions for clients whether the enquiry is for motor, personal or business insurance. When not in work I enjoy my little bit of ‘farming’ my allotment, spending time with my son or running to keep fit. expand text

Financial Adviser
I joined NFU Mutual in July 2015 bringing with me a wealth of experience in the financial services industry. I am available to offer you advice; either in the comfort of your own home or if it is more practical to get away from the daily grind and the telephone you are welcome to come to the peace and tranquillity of the office.
