Not impressed by this agency at all
office administrator/customer service (Former Employee), SydneyAugust 3, 2014
got registered ages ago, never got introduced one single job. They are just trying enlarge their recuitment data base so that they could get some kind of benefit from the government. I can't say none of the jobs they got advertised are genuine jobs but a large number of the ads put out are con.

so please be cautious while you apply.

Operational Support Group Escort (Former Employee), Lincoln, ENGJuly 31, 2014
Pros: not having to pay for my uniform
Cons: having to work in the winter outside
Sitting around watching contractors work and looking out for prisoners who were on litter duty outside. To be tolerant. The management were always there to help you. You relied on your workmates in an emergency. Dealing with abuse from the prisoners. Having a laugh during meal breaks with my co-workers

Prison Operational Support Grade (Current Employee), Sheerness, ENGJuly 1, 2014
Pros: self satisfaction and learning new things every day
Cons: none really
My day start with the computer, downloading the days visit list and preparing it in the order needed.
I work as part of a friendly team, and the managers are always at hand to answer any questions or worries.
I am still learning different aspects of this job, and love that no two days are ever the same, and theres no greater feeling than when you have – more... put someones mind at rest and they go away feeling reassured.
The hardest part of the job is when someone has turned up without a booked visit and i have to turn them away, i explain the situation to them of why they can not visit and what they should have done, and what they need to do for future visits. – less

Cashiers Supervisor (Former Employee), New Malden, ENGJune 18, 2014
Pros: great staff and working environment
Cons: appraisals not done
A typical day would start with downloading the previous and current days' financial data from the bankline system BIB (Barclays Internet Banking) into a CSV file, checking for anomalies before uploading it into the JD Edwards accountancy system. I did the Aged Debt report and sent it to Credit Control Managers and Supervisors so that they could help – more... us to reduce the list of outstanding receipts. Sometimes, I did cash forecasting. Then I set about reconciling all the bank accounts. I then resolve queries, liaising with Credit Control, Financial Accounts, Barclays Bank and Accounts Payable to do so. Once I was done with that, I did some cash allocation. I usually allocated around 200-250 remittances daily. I liaised with Credit Control to resolve queries.

I greatly enjoyed liaising with other people and solving queries relating to the Bank Reconciliations and Sales Ledger. I also enjoyed working in a team working towards a common goal of having as little outstanding receipts as possible every month. My managers would take notice of the fact that I took a lot of pride in my work. For example, I once raised my hands in triumph after solving a tricky problem and my manager called me in to tell me they really liked that attitude. – less

A "haze of confusion"
Consultant (Current Employee), London, ENGApril 23, 2014
Pros: good working hours
Cons: chaotic
No one works here as a team and all they do is blame each other so nothing ever gets done. The management is disorganised and so mostly chaotic. It is hard to do one's job here as people spend most of their time bickering about petty things and not delivering services so customers are disappointed.
