What are the best and worst things about your company?
Great opportunity for personal & professional development, great support from managers, senior managers, board members & colleagues. All the support is almost overwhelming at the start! You get courses for exams and a certain amount of time at work to prepare, usually 21 hours per exam. Once obtaining your professional qualification you get a bonus of £1,800.There isn't anything bad about the job! Busy at times with projects, professional qualification exams and 'doing the job' but you can balance this with flexi-time and buying extra holidays. You need to be prepared to revise and do exam prep in your own time.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The values of the company are what everyone stands by and works towards, if an action or objective does not contribute to the 3 strategic goals then it can be questioned. This gives you an understanding of what the company wants to achieve. In this role there is great exposure to all aspects of the business and people are very helpful when you ask for their time. The job itself is very varied and no two days are usually the same.A lot is expected from you i.e. your own time to get licenses and qualifications. But, this will only further your understanding and career so is not necessarily a negative.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Everybody is very friendly and approachable. The work life balance is very good. The benefits included are fantastic, including free access to an on site pool as well as other sport facilities. As well as an excellent pension scheme and the opportunity to get stuck into Charity events. The flexi-time system in place is also fantastic if you want to take a day off without using up holiday time. The support network in place, particularly for graduates, is exceptional. All professional qualifications are paid for, as well as receiving a bonus for passing, and we are actively encouraged to pursue as many as possible. Soft skill training is also heavily encouraged, whether that's presentation skills of NLP. In that respect the scheme really bolsters our chances as future employees, whether that's within the company or on to a new job.Salary isn't comparable to London salaries. Sometimes everything can be a bit agricultural.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The level of support that is given to employees and emphasis on development. As I am based in the North West region, the worst thing about my job is the isolation that I can occasionally feel as a result of being away from Head Office.
