Today marks 43 years since I walked through the doors of Buckhurst Hill branch to start my career with what was then Midlands Bank. Sadly that is one of the many branches I worked at that closed. Was it me that was the jinx!
I passed through many retail branches in my career, the majority in London, but finally retired in June this year following a stint in the Real Estate Finance department, in Corporate Banking.
Surprisingly I have not missed work. After 42 and a half years I thought I would but then it is not the same as it used to be, which was part of the reason I decided to leave despite Covid restrictions meaning all the holidays in the sun I was going to take, are still on hold!
