I have been working at First Central part-time (More than 8 years)
I've worked at the company for 9 years within various departments coming from a shop based sales role ,I quickly was taught about insurance from a professional,engaging learning team ! After three years in the business I wanted to try something new and was encouraged and supported by management - I took a role in HR with no experience! Was totally supported with various exams and on the job training from experienced HR professionals ! My department are like my family and this is the general feel across the business ! We have Fun and passionate events planners who arrange a range of team building events outside and Inside of work which also raises large amounts of money for local charity ! I'm a part time employee now and the company completely supports me with my recent new job as a Mum! We currently have some new leaders on the senior leadership team who have brought a wealth of knowledge to 1st central so very exciting times !!
Would be great to have a onsite baby creche
Advice to Management
Keep doing what your doing always remember the people !
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at First Central (Manchester, England).
Strengths based interview where you have to give examples. A few technical questions at the end on the actual job role. 1 on 1 with the hiring manager (HR representative is also there).
Today is #FootballShirtFriday. So to help raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK and our own local charities, the EBA and RMCH, we wore our football shirts with pride.
The first day of our Wellbeing Week was a great success with lots of people getting involved. We ran an engaging ‘managing stress’ workshop to try and give our people some great tools to come out on top in stressful situations, as well as a lunchtime walk and run to help get people out enjoying the sunshine that seemed to have been in hiding for the last six months! Walking and running isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, that’s why we ran dance, kickboxing and personal trainer sessions for those who liked to mix it up, and to top off a great first day, our team over in Gibraltar competed in a mini office Olympics on the terrace. We’re looking forward to seeing what the rest of the week will bring! #WellbeingWeek2018
