Good company to work for. Chance to move around the firm.

Provide opportunities to network, learning from some very knowledgable people.


The chance to interact with interesting customers is a good perk of the job.


Downside to working for Coutts is the pay. Pay is less than their competitors.

After completing the training programmes you can ask for compressed shifts although you won't get your first pick of days and times. Workhouse are potentially flexible.

Management were brilliant. They would help you if you wanted to broaden your horizons.
Very empathic. Every month we would have a personal development plan. Where we could talk not only about work but also personal things if they were effecting our work.

Typical day would begin by going to the post room to pick up the work from the clearing house. then i would then check the cheques against the reports. Check for frauds. After this the work would be batched and given to the appropriate person. Open the mail. dealing with this appropriately.

After lunch I would do the filing. look for any narrative errors that had been keyed from the cheques.

What learned was to work to targets. worked well under pressure. Check for accuracy. Working well on my own, using my judgement. Also being part of a large team of 25. Getting along with everyone no matter what back ground.

The Hardest part of my job was when we were all made redundant. Saying goodbye to people I had worked with for 10 years.

The most enjoyable part was when I had my end of year performance report and I would have a good mark.
Pros
Yearly travel card (free) loans, Good pension.
Cons
Not going on enough courses, i.e when I found out about being made redundant

Having been part of Coutts & Co for the last 8 years and overall the RBS group for 15 years, I feel that I have developed in my knowledge and work life style immensely.
The knowledge and experience I have gained from the various departments I have been part of, puts me in a good stead to further enhance, develop myself and learn more as I go along
Pros
RBS group benefits, Value account package

This is a company with good work life balance. Helpful colleagues and supportive business teams. However, too much governance around small changes which can be avoided.

Good people within teams but a silo mentality across teams with a terrible blame culture and a huge amount of politics leading to a lack of clarity around progression and reward.

I am a pragmatic, ambitious finance professional with strong track-record of delivering top performance. I have good knowledge and understanding of how the banking industry operates from processes, products, treating customers fairly and a confidence builder to communicate with internal or external clients. Working under pressure is definitely an often occurrence, however attention to detail is a must despite heavy work loads, ensuring due diligence is completed on all cases and are produced accurately by meeting company deadlines. I am proactively wiling to learn new processes within Private Banking Services, and am multi skilled from processes within Sales, Loans, Overdrafts, Mortgage, Libor Linked facilities & Closures. I act as a point of reference for staff on both technical and operational procedures to ensure timely and accurate processing of Credit documentations. Core values include: experience of embedding robust financial governance across an organisation to minimise losses, regulatory breaches and protect brand reputation.

Everyone is lovely, great spirit in the office. Working with professional and easy going colleagues is always going to be a great way to start your day. Coutts is very private and has a high level of confidentiality.

I really did enjoy my work.
We had deadlines to work to and the team I was in worked well together to get the job done.

Sometimes the pressure was hard to take but because we all pulled together we shared to load.

Sometimes when we were very busy our manager would ask us to tone the laughing down.

Everyone took turns in the many different roles / jobs that we had to cover.

I like to be able to adapt to many different areas within the job.
Pros
All drinks free / Working on a great team /
Cons
sometimes long hours

Each day I deal with all types of queries and requests from clients over the phone as well as by post. Also deal with administrative duties required each day. The online system has regular updates from which we learn all the time plus training on system upgrades. I work within a great team who are very friendly and dependable and do not need to be micro managed as we go about our business. The management are very professional and keep us apprised of any changes to our role or the company. They are also as accommodating as they can be within reason. The hardest part of the job is the call volumes we receive, we are often supporting other departments which put a strain on out figures and performance. The best part is the satisfaction from assisting a client and getting a positive outcome.
Pros
They do provide good support and and the right balance between home and work.
Cons
Not great opportunities to progress.
