As Administrative Assistant my tasks and jobs would vary from day to day. Most of the time I would sorting and organising email folders or collecting annual reports from clients. Most of my jobs were computer based but some days i would spend most of my time shredding paper that was no longer needed or binding reports. Working at Barnett Waddingham helped improve my knowledge and understanding of Excel. I was already fairly good at Excel, but I was creating and updating new spreadsheets that previously I would not have understood. Management and my co-workers were all very friendly and would help me if I had any problems or difficulties. The hardest part of the job was sorting and organising email folders. I found this very repetitive and mundane. The most enjoyable part of the job was finding information and then creating spreadsheets based on the information I had.
Gained a lot of experience of what it's like to work in an office environment.
