Branch Consultant (Current Employee) – Cape Town, Western Cape – 13 December 2018
Finbond mutual bank is a stepping stone for many young individuals that wants to step into the industry of finance. I love my job but however there is not acknowledgment for what one does. All focus must always be on the negativity. The best part of my job is interacting with clients on a daily basis and providing warm & friendly , quick & efficient services to them and building a relationship with them. Making an customer feel important is key, cause that way your client will remain loyal to you & the company.
A typical day at Finbond begins with a brief meeting with the branch manager. main objective is to help customers apply for loans and they are mostly on their break from work, must be efficient. The system and stuff are mostly professional. its a good place to work at

I would get to the branch at 07:00 in the morning,count petty cash and sign off all contracts of the following day. I would then have to complete all reports of the following day and attend to all descrepencies immediatly if any arises. We opened at 08:00 and from there I would already have clients asking for me personally,as I loved to satisfy clients and when they left with nothing, they woyld also understand why they did. I am very big on customer service and would always go the extra mile. in the event of slow day, I would constantly be on the phone calling potential clients and looking for good bussines. also giving advice to the best of my capabilities, remembering to represent the companies best interest. Finbond has taught me well and for that I appreciate the great leadership I submitted to.
we would close our doors at 16:30 every day and then I would start with reports, send figures and then by 17:00 I would leave to go home to the family.
I learned that with great power comes reat responsibility and that is a good thing.
My favourite part of the day was seeing a satisfied client leave with a smile and knowing that we were there to help them achieve financial independance.
