Released on: November 11, 2011, 6:37 pm
Workers at a Bromley-based finance company are benefiting from
top-flight training and development designed to equip them for
long-term careers in this growing sector.
Payday Express, a British provider of short-term finance solutions,
is seeing positive results from its focus on staff development, with a motivated and
effective team of employees.
Staff at the company based in Bromley, Kent enjoy a full, ongoing training and
development programme within their different teams, and are given encouragement by
their team leaders and managers to identify and pursue opportunities for external
training in specific job-related disciplines which will help them develop their
Ann Shepperly, for example, started work at Payday Express as a collections agent.
However, a secondment within the company to carry out User Acceptance Testing (UAT)
on its new Loan Management System showed her that she had an affinity for and
valuable skills to offer as a software tester.
She has now taken on a role within the company's IT department as a QA test
analyst, and is undertaking further training, with full company support, to help her
to learn the extra skills her new role demands.
Another Payday Express staff member whose ambition has led to her gaining a new
role, is Ann's former collections department colleague, Militza Smith.
Now working in the company's fraud protection and liaison department, studying on a
financial crime awareness course was the key to her gaining the confidence needed
for her new role.
"Completing the course while still relatively new to the job was a great
experience," she said. "I was experiencing some of the situations I was learning
about, and I tried to incorporate the solutions into my daily work. "The course was a fantastic start on a career path that I had not even previously
considered. It has broadened my horizons and taught me to think outside the box,"
Emma Furlong, group trainer for Payday Express, believes that the company's
commitment to its workforce's continual development keeps staff motivated and
productive, and benefits not only them, but also the company and its customers. "We
aim to offer a variety of internal training courses, and arrange external courses
for specific skills, so that our staff challenge themselves, broaden their skill
sets, and grow within their chosen careers," she said.
