Nic O’Mahon

Senior Administrator

"The three things I love about my job are the family feel that PenLife has as a workplace. Mostly due to everyone helping each other and our exciting team building days. I also enjoy interacting with our lovely clients and genuinely helping make their lives a little easier where we can. It's also fantastic being involved and feeling that your opinion really does matter in the company."


Nic has worked in the financial industry since 2002, initially as a Mortgage Administrator.

Her role since joining PenLife has evolved, and she now administers all aspects of finance, including pensions and investments.

Nic enjoys maintaining the good relationship that our clients have with PenLife, and makes sure everything goes smoothly for them where possible.
