Among different areas of finance jobs available in the Cape Town region for certain people is working for ABSA, Nedbank, FNB or Standard bank as debt collectors. This is obviously not a suitable position for everybody as it requires repossessing cars and houses from people in South Africa which can often be traumatic and disturbing. People who are in bad debt situations with the bank are often hiding their car from debt collectors or pretending they are not in their house when they come knocking at the door. Vacancies existing in this category are usually filled by people who are extremely patient yet firm when necessary and mostly work and get paid on a commission basis, meaning the more cars and houses they can repossess, the more money they will earn, as we say it’s not a position for everybody.
