Lots of QA (quality assurance), great laughs with my team and plenty of food. (Perks of being seated next to the office fridge!) What do…

The Credit Simple team tells: ‘My money moment’  –  our financial epiphanies

“The day my Dad closed the bank of Mum and Dad when I was in my twenties. If things got tight, I’d just go to him and ask for a loan. Finally he said, “you’ve got to do this on your own”, and of course he was right.” –  David Slack, Content & Social Media Manager “I racked up a pretty nasty credit card debt when I was 19-20.

David is our boss of everything.

What does a day in the life of you at Credit Simple look like for you? Usually a plane trip, meeting a bank or finance company…

Five minutes with … Hazel Phillips, head of communications and content

Hazel sorts out everything relating to PR, comms and content, and disciplines the apostrophes if they misbehave. She’s happiest when she has skis on her feet rather than shoes, and she takes a no-tolerance approach to spiders, particularly when they are lurking in the shower. In fact, she killed one this morning. What does a day in the life of you at Credit Simple look like? I write stuff, edit stuff and help other people write and edit stuff. I come…

I’m the designer so when I’m not glued to Photoshop designing our interfaces…
