Managing Contacts over 2 accounts

Hi Team

I have 2 Gmail accounts on my phone.  One is mine.  The other is work.

On my previous Android phone I could select which account was "active".

So while at work I would select that account.  When I did this only work contacts would show when contacts was opened.  And if searching for a contact then the search would only act on the work contacts.

I can't find a way to get this phone to work this way.  I presume that on both phones I am using Google contacts rather than something modified by the phone vendor.

Is this possible on this phone?

"Thanks

Re: Managing Contacts over 2 accounts

So, an update to this.  Just in case someone looks.  It seems the Contact I was using is the App provided by Sony.  Rather than the Google Contacts App.  I guess I am slow.  I though that Sony were trying to keep to standard Google systems and products.  Anyway, once I put the Google version in place all is right with the world.
