An employee can progress well within the Bank. The role would start at a basic level of answering customer queries but it can then progress rapidly to learning more complex banking queries and interesting banking roles.

Very friendly staff/management team. Customer focused, great training. Not overly stressful, but as with most jobs when busy there is a little more pressure.

The job itself is straightforward and the salary good. I have no issues with those. However, the trainer is an absolute bully. The managers were afraid of her and turned a blind eye to the fact she would zone in on 2 people in every group and try and totally break them because she got a kick out of it. Highly manipulative. Avoid like the plague. Ps she trains everywhere!
Pros
Good salary
Cons
Fancy a nervous breakdown?

Grim busy work environment, not recommended as a career. Bare bones of an organisation, everything is very lean, management don't listen and hold grudges against people who challenge them.
Pros
none
Cons
stressful

The work wasn't difficult. It was a customer facing role and you get used to handling cash and being discreet with customers. The main thing in any working environment is friendliness. That can make or break a job. I didn't appreciate the environment when I was there because it was so good.

Salary was poor for the work completed by staff, although the job was interesting and staff you worked alongside were good people.

Management did not care about your progression

You are able to progress if you want with encouragement from managers. It is a good environment to learn responsibility, cash management and particularly customer service.

It is a company that tries to develop its staff with courses and qualification opportunities with the IOB.
They are heavily focused on digitisation which is exciting and should provide a greater possibility for flexible working.
Pros

I worked seasonally as a factory operative during the busy Christmas period for two years. This required concentration, teamwork and being able to work under high pressure.

It wasn't specified that the job would be on the phone all day. I thought I was applying for a job in one of the branches instead it was a job similar to a call centre.
Pros
Hour long lunch
Cons
Boring, repeative tasks

Took early retirement as my job was being outsourced to customer's Solicitors and my original contract signed in 1977 stated that I could be posted anywhere in Northern Ireland and I was afraid that this may be applied to my situation.

I enjoyed my time in the Bank and could not have chosen a better career.


Team work is essential and getting long with colleages is most important - a happy work force is essential for productivity.


A typical day is reading an application liaising with Lending Manager/Customers Solicior and agreeing security to be taken. Prepare and have Bank documents (Guarantees, Mortgages, Life Policies etc) prepared and forwarded for signing.

Small international office.
Good work life balance.

Being part of a small team there is a lot to learn as you are expected to be a full team player.
