Our colleague vision is for Compare the Market to be the place of opportunity... and especially true for career development so that every colleague is able to drive their own career journey. We are passionate about 3 key areas - personal development for all, technical & skills development and leadership development. We took the time to catch up with Ellie, one of our Software Engineers, to find out about her career development journey since joining us a graduate and whether or not everything we promised in those early days has actually been delivered for her.

MyBnk is our charity partner and we recently welcomed two of their expert trainers into our offices to host our first Meerkat Money School for our colleagues and their children. MyBnk delivered their interactive financial education programme, Money Twist, which is designed to set positive money habits and mind-sets from an early age, teaching our very own pupils to become informed consumers, savvy savers and mindful spenders! MyBnk commented, “We had a wonderful time at Compare the Market's Meerkat Money School! It's a fantastic initiative that brought together lots of fun, laughter, and learning about money. It speaks volumes about the culture at Compare the Market to not only offer such an event - but to also have had the parents in the classroom, engaged and learning alongside their kids!” The day was a huge success with the children loving their free breakfast and lunch in our restaurant, a fun-filled goodie bag, amazing cookies and an afternoon of crafts… not forgetting the money tips they walked away with!

Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Compare The Market (Peterborough, England) in Oct 2021

    Interview

    Online interview, which was very relaxed, almost informal. Seemed as much about selling the company to me as assessing my suitability. I was told a date by which they would notify me as to whether or not I was successful. I have received no correspondence or feedback from HR since, despite contacting them to request it.
