My job is a contract job with small finance team, worked very long hours to meet dead lines.Very old accounting system not updated for 20 years. Management introduced new system in August 17.Did not have time for fun due to volume of work.
I was there as a temp and I had already worked for Michael Page in France as a PA.
No messing about. You do your job but you can always ask for help.
You need to be well dressed : no jeans or sweatpants even if you are not in contact with the public.
A typical day at work is hard working with so much to pick up, probably found it challenging because my specialism is not Finance and Accounting. Yet I enjoyed the challenge and was willing to take in all the information and benefited so much.
Was under supervision at times and other times I was let by myself so they would test my ability to handle clients and data by myself, which was very exciting, and definitely developed my communication skills.
Local firm, fun place to work. I have gained knowledge of Credit Control in the Middle East.
Management are friendly.
Co-workers are friendly.
The hardest part of the job would be coping with the time difference between UAE Qatar and the UK. Also they work Sundays and have Friday Off
