Great company to work for in terms of career development, training opportunities etc once you are full time member of staff.
Flexible Lecturer (Bank) (Current Employee) –  Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire24 July 2019
A great place to work, though not particularly easy to find a full time permanent role there, even after working there on a temporary contract.
I did not receive sufficient hours in the course of a week at times when I was available for the entire week though I did receive advance notice in most instances, of advanced bookings which was extremely helpful.

DATA AND FUNDING SUPPORT WORKER (Former Employee) –  East Midlands31 July 2018
A lot of work is done for the client, with minimal training, mainly dealing with the prisoners who you will have direct contact with.
