Relaxed but unproductive workplace

If you work anywhere in back office, there is a good chance your work will be largely redundant. There is a also a lot of work that doesn't really have much of an impact and seems to be numbers provided for the sake of numbers. However, everyone is very relaxed about everything and deadlines are not very strict. The workplace, overall, is good for some. If you work best under high pressure and like to use that to get a higher salary, this place is definitely not for you.

Good place to work

Very busy call centre, good training and supportive managers. Decent pay good colleagues can work in the office or home so hybrid working available. Can be a nightmare to get help.

Managers have no product knowledge or experience.

Many people who are in management roles have occupied positions for a number of years. During the interview i was advised that the 'best' thing about the job is that you can walk from department to department and chat with people. I was interviewed by two managers; one was able to advise of their role sufficiently, however, the second was unable to adequately explain what they actually do, or what responsibilities department(s) under their management did on a day-to-day basis. I was contacted off of a mobile number linked to a location that was not from the location the caller was located at a later date and fortunately I was able to express the issues around the competency of their managers to a sympathetic ear. Employers use the STAR system with a bespoke checklist - a very outdated model of interview. This helped demonstrate that the company uses old models of acronym based learning for routine employment practice - all in all, this is a company with an antiquated mindset around the financial sector and employee retention.

A good place to work

Accreditation can be stressful, at times. Progression opportunities are there, but internally it can be tough. Offer a hybrid working arrangement. Flexible working policy.
