Clearly you do need someone black or brown to come and work at your facility as black people do not refer to themselves as coloured people. It’s either black, brown or white. There’s no green yellow blue etc therefore don’t call people coloured people . Before you advertise a post use appropriate wording and get straight to the point. I pray for the people that are at your facilities. It’s shocking that there’s not one person that stopped you from posting this inappropriate to post!
Customer Service Advisor in Beckett Park, Headingley
Fun, educational and absorbing
My role dealt exclusively with customer needs - both internal and student-based. Customers are often unable to articulate the types of printing they require for their studies, and it was my job to guide them and to suggest improvements to their work that would result in higher grades. To do so, my role would lean heavily on telephone conversations, followed by one-to-one discussions over the counter, where I could then present to them examples of different types of finishing and design options, leaving it to them to make their decisions. Eventually, customers would be calling on me based on happy experiences from previous encounters, and, before long, an informal relationship would develop that would make subsequent dealings far more easy-going and friendly. Some of these customers actually became friends, and I shot a wedding for one of the more important internal customers (she was the bride). My customer feedback was always exemplary, and I was awarded with a Above and Beyond certificate for 'thinking outside the box' in regards to a particularly challenging printing requirement, which resulted in my tenacity giving the customer a clear understanding of the options our department could provide. I find talking to and solving problems for customers immensely enjoyable and fulfilling. It keeps my mind sharp and my social skills razor-sharp. To me, it was the reason why I enjoyed my time working for the University.
Lecturer in Headingley, West Yorkshire
Great collaborative environment where you can make a difference.
The institution is a great place for those passionate about teaching and learning. Staff collaborate across a range of disciplines to create meaningful learning experiences for both the students and their colleagues.
A typical day at work includes addressing student emails, designing and delivering lecture and seminar content, and attending formal and informal meetings (often passing by in the corridor).
One of the most friendly atmospheres to work, with plenty of opportunity for interaction with colleagues across the university.
