For them the flexibility and choice of hours mattered greatly when looking for a new role. As part of Fennies bank staff team, Adrianna and Sophie have been able to work the hours that suit them, even if those hours vary week to week, without giving up the perks of being an employee. We asked Adrianna and Sophie to share why they love working for Fennies’ as bank employees.
A job that fits around your commitmentsThe flexibility of belonging to Fennies’ bank staff is perfect for those who need work to fit around other commitments.

It doesn’t matter that the days and times of lectures and exams often vary. Fennies are always flexible for me.” Adrianna agrees: “Bank hours are great because it fits around my other job.”
