How does working for Virteffic compare to working in a more traditional environment?
What I enjoy most is the freedom and flexibility – which everyone at Virteffic can benefit from. I love to travel and always struggled with the “normal” holiday allowance when I was employed in a more traditional role.Now I can work more during the busier period and then take time off more often.
We ask everyone keep us informed of their holiday plans, but there is no need to submit a formal request. I also enjoy that I can play padel or schedule hair appointments and other personal appointments during weekdays, and I no longer need to compete for those valuable Saturday slots.
Working at Virteffic has allowed me the flexibility that I have never had in another role. I am provided deadlines to complete my work and when I do this is up to me, it has created a work/life balance that you wouldn’t find anywhere else.
Due to the internal and external work available, every day is different which allows me to work on a variety of tasks and the opportunity to gain more experience and knowledge, which I enjoy. I feel valued as a team member and trusted with the tasks that I am provided.
As a mother to two young children, I love the flexibility that Virteffic gives me to fit my work around them, whether its helping on a school trip or if one of them is ill.
I have the autonomy to decide when I work. I really enjoy the diversity of clients and internal work that we have and no two days are the same.
I am excited to have joined this modern company that has a fresh approach to the traditional 9-5!
I enjoy the work-life balance that Virteffic gives me, choosing to work when it suits me. No day is the same, and I enjoy being part of all things ‘Virteffic’.
I enjoy the flexibility that Virteffic gives me, I can work around my family’s schedule and make last minute changes to my day. If the weather is nice I can spend the day outside and do the work at night.
