Not as advertised
Customer solutions specialist (Former Employee) –  Leeds20 February 2018
The job was not as advertised or discussed during interview. I felt uncomfortable with the style of selling and customer service. Whilst there is some ability to progress, this would be after a number of months working as lead generating.
Cons
Cold calling

Web Developer (1.7 years) (Former Employee) –  Leeds22 August 2014
Working on a daily basis to improve the website functionality, both in terms of customers and staff. Other such duties included the creation of online adverts, Email marketing, the development of iPhone apps and implantation of SEO techniques to improve site visibility. I worked very closely with the marketing team to portray the correct message on the website and also within email marketing campaigns. Thinking outside the box was a must and the research/development of new technologies to improve all marketing channels was strongly encouraged.

Great people, great environment, not much opportunity for progression.
Equity Release Advisor (Current Employee) –  Leeds12 January 2015
A typical day at work would start with me sourcing my leads for the day with a view to generating a fact find. Once I have completed a fact find and recommended a lender I write up a personalised illustration for my client and send it out in the post, I would do this as many times as possible. Working in this role has improved my problem solving skills, my organisation, and my work ethic.Overall it's a great place to work, the people and environment are fantastic, once you reach the position of Advisor there is a noticeable ceiling on your progression in place directly above you. The hardest part of this job is the work load, finding time to generate new leads, write up packs, deal with on going cases can sometimes be a challenge, I find the key is in maintaining an organised calender and having a to do list. The thing I enjoy most about being an equity release advisor is providing help to people who need it.

Great working environment with the right management to back it up.
Equity Release Adviser (Former Employee) –  Leeds, West Yorkshire, England9 January 2017
My typical day would include spending an hour on the phone contacting warm leads which have registered an interest through our website.
From there I would book candidates in for a "Fact Find", which enables me to interview the client and explore whether they qualify for Equity Release. From this point the advice process begins. I advise on the pros and cons of them carrying out equity release and which lender best fits their needs.

Repeat business comes from managing a successful pipeline and being proactive on the phones at the right times. The best times are usually 9am in the morning and 1pm in the afternoon after fresh inquiries.

The key to this role is time management and working smart throughout the day. The smarter you work the more business you bring in. It also help to be flexible to work extra hours.

What makes this company great is the management and training behind it. If you need support in any area then it can be arranged around your day, this is especially helpful when you have to work around your diary. It also helps that every team on the floor is spread even with regards to skill, experience and personality so it's possible to have a great time whilst working. I have met some really great friends there.
Pros
Full canteen with ping pong table, xbox and tv. Great discounts of mobile contracts, glasses, healthcare etc.
Cons
long hours, basic pay
