Senior Bank Officer (Former Employee) – London – 29 May 2018
A fabulous beginning to a career in financial markets. It'll never make you rich but will provide a stimulating and secure career path. Lots of social and sports opportunities too, with a sports club at Roehampton and even a Bank yacht back then.
PA to the Head of Department & Team Assistant (Current Employee) – England – 15 February 2018
Have moved around within the Bank so I've experienced many different management styles. Some departments are more organised and disciplined than others, but overall there are certain guidelines, which are carefully followed (for specific roles). Unfortunately you can be limited to those tasks.
Not much scope for rapid growth. Comfortable to work here.
People are very friendly and inclusive. I couldn't go permanent though, the pay is not great, however, the benefits are great! So in summary, if you want to settle down and become furniture you should apply for a permanent position. Disclaimer: This is my experience and its within the field of office support roles (Admin/PA)
Great benifits for permanent staff; heavily subsidised perks, flexi working oportunities, family oriented, kind and friendly overall
Salaries are not so great, stuck in a role you have accepted for 2 years before you can apply internally for another role
Bought Ledger Clerk (Former Employee) – London – 15 February 2018
Would have still been here if i hadnt been made redundant, vast variety daily, loads of great people and a beautiful building to work in. I actually worked for the banks in house catering service, and when the bank tendered the contract out, we lost and granada took over so we all lost our jobs as granada only took on 26 people out of the 300+ that worked for B.E services.

Analyst (Former Employee) – London – 14 August 2017
Change in an organisation is led from the top and followed by the bottom. However there is a senior contingent at the Bank of England that does not do this and so every revamp and new strategy ultimately falls short.
If this was truly followed then more satisfaction and value could be derived from the work - which can be varied and intellectually demanding depending on the area.
BASEL II ACCOUNTANT/PROCESS DEVELOPER (Former Employee) – England – 9 August 2017
This role was a contracting role at an Israeli bank who needed a process to be developed for their Basel II reporting requirement. I was not only able to build the process but I automated it so that it took very little time

Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Bank Station – 12 December 2016
I believe that working at the Bank of England was an enjoyable time for me as it taught me to enhance my skills on areas that I have not previously worked in. Every day I will receive a new task meaning i tried something new each day. the management team were great and a pleasure to work with as they made me feel comfortable in an environment that i was not used to. the most enjoyable part of the job was learning new skills. These include: filing, archiving, managing emails, shadowing and note taking and organising financial paperwork. one of the key skills i have developed from this experience was organisation.
PMO Analyst (Current Employee) – London – 7 November 2016
Days are rarely the same as it can range between really relaxed to absolutely busy. There is a lot to take on board derived from the need for change and improvement. Management allows a great deal of initiative and ownership of projects with flexibility to accommodate personal circumstances.
