Building on a communications-based degree, I pursued a career in Administration. I have worked in the University for over ten years. I started in the Institute for Learning Enhancement as a Receptionist and Personal Assistant. I then became the Department Administrator. To learn new skills and develop my experience in other parts of the university, I applied for the role of Executive Assistant for the Dean of the School of Health and Wellbeing. After a year in this post, I was promoted to a Team Leader Quality and Academic Development. This role was very varied and allowed me to develop my skills in the management of people. After nearly four years, the universities administration was reviewed and I was transferred into the role as Faculty Quality Administrator within the Faculty of Education Health and Wellbeing. This transition allowed me to work with new disciplines such as Sport, Secondary Education and Post Compulsory Education. In this current post, I have a more focussed role and work with staff on new academic developments, changes to provision and professional body accreditation, approval and endorsements.
