Administration Department The department was the first to be de veloped once the decision to open a branch was taken, lts primary role was to ensure that the computer and other systems were in place and operational by the opening date. This objective was achieved and on lst October 1985 the de partment held a staff of nine. Of these, seven are still employed in the branch. With the growth of business, the old Operations Department was reorganised during 1987 with two main areas, Banking Operations and Finance Control.
