Great place to learn financial services industry

Was a great place, until individuals from private sector joined and brought in their methods that do not work in the current environment and also negative aspects that they experienced at their previous jobs, that demotivate and discourage growth of staff! Most senior people do not have leadership qualities. There is no typical work day, as each day brings on new and exciting challenges. I have learnt that if people at the workplace are placed in positions of seniority without proper analysis , they can be more destructive rather than productive for the growth of the organisation. I most enjoyed being able to help people that were were being ripped off by insurers and brokers at their time of need. Some people do not understand process and procedures that goes into ensuring that they ae helped, so become impatient and we have to make them see the light, as a manner of speaking.

Pros: great learning curve when selfish superiors do not attemt to subotage one.
Cons: Superiors seriously lack people management skills and are quite unprofessional at times.

Excellent

The culture of my organisation makes it very easy for me to accomplish my set goals on a daily basis. Teamwork and professionalism in the organisation I am working for is the order of the day. Working environment and my leadership style makes it easy for me to relate with co-workers. I have gained confidence through my experience in presenting issues relating to my core function through interacting with different levels of management and improving relationships with external stakeholders. I enjoy being in meetings with line Departments, orientating and updating them on supply chain processes and issues. The most challenging aspect of my job is mostly on the interpretation of the regulations as the application is normally different from one organ of state to the other.

Pros: Fully comply to all the laws, rules and applicable legislations.
Cons: Working for long hours

Learning sector

During my work day, I develop test cases, I sometimes assist other employees with their work just to understand what they do. I enjoy working with different stakeholders because this give exposure to lot of field and the understanding of those field. I learned that timelines are very important to the project and identifying risk to minimize them. The most challenging thing is under testing is working with different stakeholders such as developers because sometimes we had some conflicts which can delay the project to be delivered.

Pros: Great opportunity to get hired to different department
Cons: Working depending on other employees

I have learnt a lot for the past 4 years

I manage my diary on a daily basis. i have learnt the importance of compliance in an organisation because without compliance culture, an organisation may face numerous risks which may lead to suspension or withdrawal of the licence, reputational risks and legal action against the organisation. I conducting the on-site visits as we now see exactly what the entities are doing on a daily basis and it also strengthens the relationship between the regulator and the regulated entity.

Pros: It is possible based on the performance
Cons: the long hours are not bad as an individual can manage how they work.
