My time spent in Certus I worked in various roles and on various teams. I worked with some great people along the way. My first role in Certus was Clearing and Payments Executive where I looked after processing cheques, running reports and ensuring all accounts balanced and money was allocated to the correct accounts. I also dealt with other financial houses with regards cheques clearing. I also looked after the end to end credit card report ensuring it balanced daily. My next role in Certus was Reconcilaitions officer where I was responsible for reconciliating various accounts both in Euro, GBP and USD$. I was responsible for following up on any outstanding funds with account managers or bank the funds were coming through. I also was responsinle for preparing monthly oracle rec's.
Pros
great staff
Cons
no much progression due to company closing down

Good place to work, great staff. A company that if you show your commitment they will return it back. Lots of different accounts to manage from several finance institutions so plenty of learning across the board on mostly mortgage arrears accounts.
Pros
Great Staff
Cons
Location

My days are very busy, but enjoyable. I always get the opportunity to work in new challenges for the customers and for the company.
It is a great company to learn and develop your career and the support provided by managers and colleagues is amazing.

The hardest part of the job is trying to do things quicker, as most of the customers are under strict regulations and we need to ensure that risk policies, procedures and regulations are in place (even if that means finalising the project later than expected).

The best part of the job is the number of occasions to develop ourselves and others, to collaborate and the events that the company prepared for us to improve our relationships between colleagues at all levels.
Pros
flexibility, location, salary
Cons
performance
