I’m Curls or Huw if you want to know my human name.
I am a shift worker and tend to find myself doing a lot to do with personal finances on my night shifts.
I joined chip for the 3% from MSE, and managed to recommend a friend to get it to 4%. But after the year it went back to zero and so I moved on.
Unfortunately in this day and age loyalty isn’t rewarded and you have to keep moving your finances.
However, I did LOVE the app, and I would be tempted to get it again if and when the right offers come up.
Now the other reason I’m here? To learn, personal finance is a hobby and interest of mine, and the more I learn about up and coming companies and the industry and get to know the people in them, the more experienced I’ll be for the future.
I love my job but I hate shift work, so maybe showing a side interest in something else and trying to learn a bit more about the world of banking and finance and it’s future will be a bit of personal development.
Plus I get some downtime on night shifts to read through lovely forums like this.
