Productive & fun workplace
Independent Living Advisor, Central Finance Team. (Former Employee) – London, ENG – 12 September 2015
I was employed via an agency at the time however, Brent initiated the process to retain me.
Work usually starts with me arriving early before the gate's opened and once in, I power up my computer, sign in for HSE reasons, tea & coffee in the air and few minutes catch up before it's 9am and the phones starts to go.
I've learned that training picked up from previous employment is not a waste at all. I had the best Team Leader ever; we had quite a huge backlog of Service Users with little or no quarterly returns to the Council as part of implementing personalised budgets; Brent had outsourced these duties & with the changes going on at the time, the team leader fashioned a new role fitting for me, right there at the team meeting just so these backlogs were tackled within reasonable statutory timeframes.
I had the best colleagues; we were 5 in total and being the only guy you can imagine. We supported each other and ensured duty of care was on top of the list regardless of background.
The hardest part of the job was distractions while I'm dealing with all the accounts hence the move into another office I shared with the team leader who only visited few times in a month.
The most enjoyable part was all the training, support I received (real investors in people).
Thanks ever so much!
