Absa Reviews


Fraud investigator

I started working at Absa in 2012 as an ATM Claims Agent. Shortly afterwards, I started working as Fraud Analyst in Internet Banking Fraud and have been in the department to do. As part of my role, I engage with management, team members where we share best practise ideas, and with customers giving feedback on cases of fraud and explaining the process in detail, as I believe that customer relations form the basis of any business. In my line of work, professionalism is key and I display a high level of integrity in everything I do. My role has exposed me to different facets of the business and I have gained emotional maturity that is required to empathise with clients without compromising on professionalism. I enjoy engaging with customers and providing them with the best service at all times.

Pros: I guess we all want growth but for me its more of perfecting my current role then move within so i will know and perfect when and if the importunity what i will be doing.
Cons: when you love what you doing and want to give the best service extra hours will never be a problem.

Advanced Career Enhancement

every working day is full of activities and tasks e.g. we are involved in daily strategical meetings, great team collaboration where we are required to service business with accurate data ad hoc queries and projects. I have a good relationship with most of my co workers and most of it is more professional than anything for the sake of ensuring deliverables are met. My team is mostly full of specialists in what we do so we rely on requests and project planning, our environment is full pressure on deliverables but we mostly rely on sharing ideas and synergy on most task that need collaborative efforts. I enjoy problem solving, stakeholder communication and mostly project planning and execution because you get to interact with business on higher scale. The most challenging part of my job is when our stakeholder cannot declare their requirements in terms of coding and DBMS information they require.

Pros: Great opportunity for knowledge base
Cons: Limited opportunity for promotion and recognition

A typical work day start at 07:30 am and ends at 17:00 pm were my duties are split I assist in the teller, host areas to allow for lunch breaks and the balance of my day is spent resolving supplier issues and the daily branch admin.
