Not quite as good as a holiday...

but a change nonetheless. There have been so many people off sick in the sales department lately that the amount of work coming through to Credit has slowed to a trickle, so two of us were given a very different job yesterday and today. We recently bought some of the loan book from a local housing co-operative, and all of their files were stacked up in boxes in our storeroom, needing to be archived. So guess what W and I have been doing; going through old files to determine whether they relate to a loan we bought,packing the relevant files into barcoded boxes and entering their details on a spreadsheet. Re-boxing the files that don't belong to us for collection by the co-op (they sent us all sorts of things, they weren't selective at all; phone bills from 1995 anyone?) and then taking it all back down to the storeroom for collection by the records management people.

It was a nice, easy couple of days and a welcome break, but not something I'd want to do every day. The only thing that stopped it from getting boring was the necessity of checking our jobs lists every little while, as the salespeople didn't know we'd been reassigned and were sending us deals that we'd previously looked at, once they were ready for approval. An interesting mix of work, really.
