The most enjoyable part of the job was the culture and management style where work/life balance came first. The wholes department focus was on getting things done through working partnerships. I learned some good techniques on personal man-management opposed to micro managing. My manager was so supportive and promoted an outstanding workplace culture. At Kings they promote core value interviews where they make sure they hire the right fit for the department. I thoroughly enjoyed the togetherness and event the department held in order to promoted helping one another. Moving forward I picked up transferable skills like working with different systems, data cleansing and collaborative working.
After 2 years employment a more permanent role was desired. I enjoyed the training staff were encouraged to undertake. After working for CTU I worked for the FoLSM.
Not offered a permanet contract after 2 years of service
no. no. no. accept a job anywhere else. racist. sexist. homophobic. bullying. incompetent. senior staff undermine junior staff. leadership constantly lie. research funds mysteriously disappear. most of the lecturers seem to hate students especially non-white ones. I have no idea how they continue to operate.
A typical day's work involved a variety of tasks including diary management for two academics, arranging meetings, booking rooms/catering where appropriate, HR tasks such as contract renewals, completion of recruitment forms, staff health & safety inductions, monitoring office stationery/photocopier machines, processing expense claims, raising purchase orders, running reports for grants, completing research grants authorisation forms/applications.
Exposure to wide range of tasks, forever learning as systems changes, tendency to not work overtime.
Some tasks that are deadline oriented are allocated with little notice, open plan format can be disruptive making it difficult to focus.
Medical Secretary. Typing scanning answering the phone and filling Sorting mails documents and telephone calls Scheduling patients appointments and arranging referrals. Transcribing dictation preparing medical reports maintaining office files and patient records
The work varies between departments and roles so there is no typical work day. My experience was very good as I was working from home with daily contact with the trial manager and other members of the team. As with other universities there is scope to change roles.
I worked at King's College London as a Graduate Teaching Assistant. This involved working closely with a course convenor, who would lead the main lecture series. I would then teach the students in smaller groups (tutorial groups or seminars of up to 15 students), to reinforce and practise what they had been taught in the lectures. I was given lots of freedom in terms of how I went about this, which was a great way to experiment with different teaching strategies and to develop as a teacher.
To communicate regularly with the Manager with any new and important issues that may arise. Deal with student, staff and conference guest contact in person and also by phone and email. Pass on messages to the Accommodation or conference teams as required. Sign contractors and other visitors in and out along with any issued keys. Contact residents when they have visitors and ensure visitors are signed in. Sign in the guests for events that take place every night in our building.
