Absa Reviews


Excellent learning experience
Working for ABSA/ Barclays from the year 2011 has taught me great things. I have acquired so many different skills. I am more confident in myself, I know that there is nothing that i cannot do if I just put my heart soul and mind to it. I have learnt how to deal with customers over the phone, face to face and even irate clients. I am now able to master the art of working under pressure and meeting deadlines. I have excellent admin skills. i am able to work both in a team and individually. I now have the skills to be a Personal assistant, team assistant, ability to service multiple people at the same time providing support and structure. I maintain high quality relationships with colleagues and customers. I enjoy being challenged and reaping the rewards of well and hard earned worked. My job was stressful in a way that every process had a deadline and within that time all information needed to be collected and thoroughly checked. By doing this i acquired a high level of attention to detail.
Pros: Great opportunity to acquire knowledge in a stressful environment as well as how to adjust
Cons: Growth in the company is very slow

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.

I have been working as an independent consultant since leaving ABSA for the past 18 months.
I am currently running a consolidation and revamp project for Liberty Life Head office. I was brought in by DEC as an independent consultant to run this project for them. I do this with a full professional team of consultants. We are about to conclude the business case to be presented to the board which would then make a decision on the project.
Pros: The work is very interesting and cutting egde as were are designing for the introduction of a paradiphm shift interms of a workign culture
Cons: The work is dependent on the business case being approved by Liberty
