My name is Alex, a huge sports fan especially rugby and American football, and I am working at 1PS as part of a year in industry while attending Swansea University studying Economics.
I joined 1PS at the beginning of February and this blog will be part of a mini-series documenting my time working here and giving you an insight into our company and ethos.
Like starting any new job, it was a mixture of excitement to work somewhere new and learn about new areas of business along with being nervous about making a good impression and not messing up any of the work given to me. However, I should not have worried as after meeting the 1PS team and seeing how friendly and helpful they are I knew I would enjoy my time here. Especially as they always have time to answer my questions no matter how silly they may have been.
I spent the beginning part of the month getting up to speed learning about the service 1PS provides to agencies and understanding the 1PS portal and functionality, which was easy to pick up!
I then worked along side a Credit Controller, chasing payments, issuing invoices and managing credit limits for our clients.
I have also been helping to reconcile payments against the correct invoices which involved matching payments in our un-reconciled report to remits we had received, requesting remits for some un-reconciled payments and ensuring our accounts team have the information they need to update our sales ledger.
It has been a very interesting first month for me at 1PS, getting to see how hard the rest of the team works yet still managing to have a good time and make the workplace an enjoyable one. I am looking forward to my next few months here and to see what I may learn. Follow our company page to keep up with my journey!
