We always try to promote from within so when we recruit we look for people who are dedicated and determined as well as compassionate and caring.
The first stop is full training – we have our own dedicated training centre at our head office, but training doesn’t finish when you start working. We encourage all our employees to advance their skills throughout their career – it could even lead to a promotion! We value our staff and invest time into ensuring they are happy and content. All of our staff are either qualified to NVQ level 2 or working toward it.
We have a high retention rate for staff or those who return having worked elsewhere, they know we value them and are proud of each of them. We provide a number of additional enhancements to their terms and conditions including Credit Union membership, loan vehicles and financial health plans.
