Good place to work and very busy
Good place to work, exceptionally friendly and caring colleagues and very busy. Hardest part of the job at times would be working to deadlines under pressure although management were always more than willing to assist. The most enjoyable part of the job was working in a friendly atmosphere with a great team.
