Excellent learning experience

I am currently working at Absa Bank a Middle Office Consultant. Every day is a new day for a new learning experience. I look forward to coming to work, working with such loving and supportive team members. Our goal is to give the best service to our client and live up to our values. We love and respect one another. My success is their success. When my team member is battling I would help out and make sure he/she feels strong enough to face another or serve another client. We do a lot of different projects which is a good learning opportunity and gives us new skills.

Pros: great learning exrperience
Cons: contract

I have 2 appointments per day that I have to meet clients that are on my portfolio as a relationship executive and my responsibility is to provide financial advice to the clients based on the analysis that I have done on their accounts. I have to give a report to my manager regarding the meetings with the clients. I have good relationship with my co-workers when it’s time to focus we work closely together and when it’s time to relax we are more like family not co-workers. My current role has taught me the importance of knowing what’s going on around me as it affects not only my clients business but the banks risk based on the exposure they have with the clients. Getting to see the day to day running of some of my clients businesses it’s a pleasure the biggest challenge is to give clients negative feedback (declined application)

Pros: good company to work for, they give people an opportunity to learn and grow
Cons: the rules and regulations are very strict when it comes to credit applications

Ambitious, hard working, competitive achiever

Dealing with operations, dealing with clients and dealing with staff issues and concerns. growing the profit margin by 10% year on year.Teamwork is of utmost importance and effective communication, continuously asking questions in order to make sure that client or staff understand each other. I have learnt not to always speak my mind.I have learnt that one is never too old too try new ideas instead of doing things the way we have done many years ago. I have learn that one has to take a leap of faith and most importantly, invest in your people. grow and continuously motivate and encourage staff as they are the driving force of the ship that we are on.

Pros: Close to home, great clients
Cons: Stuck

Great exposure to the Financial Adviser industry and Product Providers

Go through my list of priorities and establish what is important versus urgent. I always interact with my colleagues by enquiring if they have any urgent or important matters pending and they should let me know if they need my assistance providing I have not urgent or important matters pending. I struggle to work efficiently and effectively when I'm constantly being micro managed.

Pros: Networking with the external product providers
Cons: Micro Management
