I started off on a temporary contract as an assessor and now have a permanent position. When you work for the Student Loans Company there are plenty opportunities for personal development.
My current role as an assessor is to check that student applications are eligible, that all the necessary evidence has been received, and that the correct funding has been awarded. As an assessor, you get a real sense of accomplishment when you have made payment to an account.
The student funding award plays a significant part of a student's entry into higher education and is naturally important to each individual's future. Knowing that you are playing your part in helping a student to develop and realise their potential makes you feel like you are really making a difference to their life.
Since joining the Student Loans Company, I have met loads of nice people and gained a lot of new friends. Being part of a team and always made to feel welcome makes such a difference to your day.
