1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I work in Cheque Processing, on a day to day basis I have to scan in the cheques that we recieve from clients and select the correct account for them to be scanned into, after this I have to input all of the information on the cheque into another programme and send it off to someone else in order for it to be verified. When all of the cheques have been input correctly I can then generate the summary sheets telling us exactly what cheques were processed and what accounts they went to. Then the cheques can be batched and sent off to the clearing banks.
