People of Privalgo – Unlocking Lockdown

03 June 2020

In this installment of People of Privalgo we focus on our two new recruits, Sunny Bains and Charlie Gooch, who have been working for us for two months without setting foot in our Eastcheap office. Thanks to our advanced cloud-based tech systems Sunny and Charlie have been fully on-boarded, trained remotely and are working from home.

Sunny Side Up – Sunny Bains, Settlements Administrator

About You?
I’m fanatical about football and motocross and spend Saturdays playing football in the morning and in the afternoon I’m on two wheels on a dirt track. I also love travel.

Your Role?
I’m a part of the settlements team ensuring that trades are settled and payments are sent in a timely manner. We also work closely with other departments in the company. The role requires a strong attention to detail and focus, working alongside Nicola and Charlie has also been a great help.

Covid-19 Start – Pressure?
I feel lucky to have been one of the very few people to be able to find a new job during these uncertain times. Sure, it’s been challenging but I feel like I have slotted in well. Everyone in the company has been so helpful and welcoming.

The High-Tech FX?
I had never worked remotely before so wasn’t sure what to expect. From the superb training and IT infrastructure to recording Microsoft Teams meetings, this is a company that means business – literally. The fintech is complemented by great FX training from Nicola Sawyer.

Is Virtual Real?
Yes! Everyone has been welcoming and although we have only met on screen, I feel I know the team really well. It’s like being part of a family.

Awkward Moment?
I’m Essex born and bred so it’s a bit embarrassing owning up to being a Manchester United fan. It does mean I’m well red!

Eastcheap Return?
I’m looking forward to meeting the team and feeling the vibe of the office. And having seeandn the table online, I fancy my chances of beating everyone at ping pong.

Alpha Charlie – Charlie Gooch, Settlements Administrator

About You?
Twenty-one and from Essex, I get mistaken for being sixteen on a regular basis (I’ve actually been asked for ID after filling my car). I look after myself (football three times a week and looking to push it to five) and I’m a die-hard Spurs fan on a mission to get a season ticket.

Your Role?
My role within Privalgo is working closely with Nicola Sawyer and Sunny Bains to ensure the appropriate settlement of trades. This requires extreme attention to detail and care to ensure  the job is carried out as smooth as possible. We work a lot with other departments in the company.

Covid-19 Start – Pressure?
At first I was a little apprehensive as I thought I would struggle not meeting with the team face to face. But I have been warmly received and feel right at home. Everyone has been there for me, no matter how big the problem may be.

The High-Tech FX?
High-tech at its very best! From basic set-up of laptop to Microsoft Teams (excellent for re-running the training) and user friendly CMS platform, we have the best tools in the business to provide the best service to clients.

Is Virtual Real?
Without a doubt. I feel very much part of the team even though I have not met anyone in person. I feel completely at home in asking for help.

Awkward Moment?
Not yet, but if the impossible happens and Spurs lose to Manchester United I won’t be going anywhere near Sunny.

Eastcheap Return?
I have never worked in an office environment so I am not sure what to expect! The main aspect I am excited about is finally meeting everyone and getting to know them.
