I joined dbfb 3 years ago, at the time there wasn’t an official vacancy for me, but they decided my skillset and personality would be a perfect fit for the company and created a role. We’re not a large corporate but we're 'mighty' and we’re always doing the most in our roles to make sure our customers come first, without being sent round the houses, which is what makes us different.
Having recently joined dbfb, what stands out to me is the mindset of everyone. Each team has the same focus and drive to deliver the best service and experience to our customers. Always ensuring whatever solution we are providing is tailored to and for the benefit of each individual customer. Going above and beyond is the standard we work to every day.
8 years ago, I joined dbfb as an IT Apprentice. Throughout my time at dbfb, I have been supported in improving my skillset and developing within my role through regular training and development programmes, and now I am a Product Champion for our Services desk. As a team, we do our best to ensure that everyone gets the help and resources they need to develop themselves, which means we can deliver the highest standard of support for our customers.
