Careers - Our people make UK SBS a great place to work​

Meet Melissa​​​


After finishing school, I completed a Business Administration apprenticeship at a company where I was involved in a range of activities including invoice processing. I was keen to find a full-time job in finance which would build the foundation for a successful career.

I applied to UK SBS and started in February 2020 in Accounts Payable in the Billingham office. I’m now Finance Officer in the Database Management Team which will expand my skills and experience.

Being well supported during the pandemic

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I have been working from home for almost the entire time that I’ve been with UK SBS, but thanks to the support of colleagues and my manager, I have always felt well connected and able to learn.

‘Keep-In-Touch’ meetings and taking the opportunity to job shadow Database Management colleagues have meant that even when working remotely, I have been able to build relationships with people and learn more about processes. The job shadowing led to the new role I have now moved into – I seized the opportunity because I knew through experience that I would enjoy it and it would lead me in a good direction for my future career.

What has surprised me the most has been the time and care my manager has taken to check that I’m managing ok with the challenges that working from home can bring. This support has a big difference in the lockdown.

Recommending a career in Finance

I have always enjoyed maths and wanted to be an accountant, so I’m delighted to have got my career started. I always say to friends that if they are interested and see a job advertised, they should go for it – they won’t regret it.​​​
