Claire made an emotional return to work in the third episode but quickly got on with the job in hand; being the best bank possible for all customers.

In the documentary we saw NatWest staff members saving customers money by consolidating their debt. The above video shows the staff sharing stories about other occasions they've helped customers this way. 

4. Customer Service adviser Jill supports a customer recently diagnosed with cancer


Adviser Jill Ramsden supported a customer recently disgnosed with cancer by adding his wife to all of his accounts. They requested this so that if the worst happened, his wife would be able to access their accounts. The moment was made more touching when Jill shared a story of her own.
