My job is a contract job with small finance team, worked very long hours to meet dead lines.Very old accounting system not updated for 20 years. Management introduced new system in August 17.Did not have time for fun due to volume of work.
Good opportunity, well paid. Tough sector but great development opportunities with training and experience within office. Boring at times as long days and ruthless management. Micro-managed to an extent.
Clerk of Works (Former Employee) – London – 8 June 2016
When there was a vacancy for a Clerk of Works in my professioñ they were well versed in job spec. If someone else got the post they always came back to you and told you. Very rare an agency will bother to come back to you
Trainee (Former Employee) – Slough – 12 September 2015
A typical day at work is hard working with so much to pick up, probably found it challenging because my specialism is not Finance and Accounting. Yet I enjoyed the challenge and was willing to take in all the information and benefited so much.
Was under supervision at times and other times I was let by myself so they would test my ability to handle clients and data by myself, which was very exciting, and definitely developed my communication skills.
Team Secretary(E&M) (Former Employee) – Weybridge, ENG – 3 June 2015
This role was like being with family, everybody looked after each other and the work ethos was fun but also serious. My manager was extremely supportive as were all of them. I have learned a great deal and was so sorry to leave, I made some good friends.
Michael Page very much has a 'work hard, play hard' ethic which I found motivating and exciting. Teams work closely together offering support and encouragement which enables each individual to become the best they can be. Targets are set which are achievable but require hard work and efficiency. The office atmosphere is busy and dynamic where challenges are often set offering great incentives.
