Mission: To make our customers' lives better with a simple, human and honest service. Vision: To become the number one alternative loan provider in the UK.
IF YOUR FRIENDS trust you, so will we, says “old-fashioned” Amigo Loans. The firm offers to lend up to £7,500 to anyone who may have a poor credit score but has someone who will act as a guarantor.
All the company asks of staff is to “act like a human” and be honest and responsible for what they do. Senior managers truly live those values, say employees (an 82% positive score).
The firm, based in Bournemouth, Dorset, had its credit agreements approved by the Plain English Society and insists staff consider customers as people, not numbers. Customer service has been rated 9.4 out of 10 by more than 7,000 of its customers.
My Manager is the company’s strongest factor in 14th place (78%). Bosses share important information with staff (79%, ninth) and motivate people to give of their best every day (75%, 10th).
Breakfast is provided free and everyone gets a day off on their birthday. Employees feel a strong sense of family (83%).
The company matches funds raised for its nominated charity, children’s hospice group Julia’s House, which itself ranks 41st on our list of 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations To Work For. Hardened employees take on Tough Mudder challenges to raise money, while others prefer to take part in a gentler pub quiz.
