Opportunities for junior staff from Retail to Commercial banking.

Typical work day - Working through operational challenges and clearing path ways for my team. Absa bank is too internally focused and lacks the ability to deliver a holistic client offering. Relationship with co - workers - I maintain a professional relationship and focus on adding value to my team and stakeholders. What you have learnt - Due to the operational challenges collaboration efforts have proven to be great skill to navigate.

Pros: Absa has the ability to produce better results, however the culture does not allow for quicker decision making.
Cons: Local leadership team dis empowered to make decisions with respect to their businesses.

Communication makes everything easier. Schedule periodical calls with my customers to share updates about how things are going and to ask how happy they are with your services on a scale from 1-10, 10 being best. If they do not give me a 10, do not ask why but ask what it would take to make it a 10. If they give me a score of 10, ask what they particularly appreciate.Share new market insights, my opinion on the matter, and opportunities that your clients might not be aware of yet. Generating valuable content shows that you are on top of my game and improves brand awareness. Clients will also be likely to share your content or recommend your services to their connections based on publicly available content.should always strive to be the best company in the market. If people see my business as a leading brand in the market, they are much more likely to stick to me. They have confidence in me because the consensus confirms that they already have one of the best providers

Growth opportunities

I have been a temporary staff member at absa for the last 3 years. I want to grow within the industry but unfortunately my contract is ending with absa August 2018. I enjoy working with people, i am generally a quiet person but once i get to know people i open up. I have learnt on the good and bad ways of servicing clients and that the client comes first. I enjoy my job and i enjoy meeting new people. The most challenging part of my job is to doing the job correctly with quality as some client's structures are very complicated.

Pros: I enjoy the working hours and getting recognition.
Cons: Not being permanent, no benefits such as bonus or increase.
