Extracts from this document...


Account of the Activity Beneficial Finance, the place where I worked for my work experience was a one floor, quite a large main big office where most of the people worked and to the side there were a couple smaller offices, at the back of the main room there were a storage room and the staff room. Which was used quite regularly. The sort of work that Beneficial Finance do, is giving credit or loans to people who cant get them from major banks i.e. Barclays or Natwest.
