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.
Yearly travel card (free) loans, Good pension.
Not going on enough courses, i.e when I found out about being made redundant
