Good working environment and well-paid

While working for Spinnaker's I was given a job working on clearing-out a property in Edinburgh. The work was good. Dealing with management was fine. The job involved some heavy lifting which was difficult but not too challenging when working as part of a team. One of the best things about the job was that I believe we were paid very well for our work given the nature of the task.

Pros

Good pay.

Cons

Tasks sometimes challenging to one's strength

Excellent Company

I worked for Spinnaker for over 2 years and can truly say it is one of the best agencies in Portsmouth to work for. There was never such a thing as a typical day as it was so fast paced and ever changing you had to be able to adapt. I was taught everything about the current job market, latest legislation's and how to deal with people from all walks of life from many different countries. The management were always very supportive and very keen to teach me anything I needed and supported me so I could progress to be the best I could. The co-workers were fantastic fun, all of them would gladly help in anyway they could and assist even when they were busy with their own jobs. The hardest part of the job was having to leave, unfortunately due to person reasons I had to move out of the area but the management team were amazing and outstanding.

Pros

Amazing team, great support

Cons

long hours
