Senior Personal BankerRoyal Bank of Scotland
Manchester, United KingdomFull Time
This role is based in a high pressure, fast paced call centre in which my role is to take inbound customer service calls and make outbound calls to source sales leads for banking products. I am required to use a multitude of different systems, such as various telephony desktop applications, banking databases and systems relating to anti-fraud monitoring, branch appointment booking and handling customer complaints. I have received training in many areas such as anti money laundering and tax evasion, data protection laws and the Financial Compensation scheme, all of which manifest themselves in a consistent and diligent adherence to all processes and policies, considering the intrinsic risk of banking where a customer is not physically present.

As a result I have been given the sub role of monitoring the performance of my colleagues, and counselling my colleagues to improve their own performance and the average of the department.

This programme of degree level study gave me the opportunity to work in many areas in which I am extremely passionate and want to adopt as my career path. Overseen by Salford’s School of Computing, Science and Engineering and based at MediaCityUK, it is a highly technical course which explores the scientific aspects of Film, Music and Television. The acute level of detail involved appealed to my personality as I am someone who likes to delve into the intricacies of how things work, whether it is software, hardware or scientific principles. Along with the technical understanding required, the course also encompassed the organisation of many media projects which allowed me to develop production skills such as personnel management, asset management and script development.
