I work for two large teams in an extremely busy tax department. My role is varied with tasks such as e-travel, diary management, billing, typing of letters, reports, producing PowerPoints and arranging seminars.
Outside my core role I am a Charity Champion, this involves communicating to the entire Birmingham office, arranging charity events/seminars and being responsible for the collecting and banking funds.
Working for a large company and the roles I undertake, I have learned to communicate to a wider audience, be part of a larger team of individuals and have become experienced with a wide range of systems.
I work closely with my co-workers to ensure that we all have good working relationships, this enables us to assist each other and cover in their absence.
I arrange regular meetings with my core departmental managers, this not only maintains a good working relationship but also gives me an understanding of what they’re currently working on and discuss ways in which I can lighten their workload.
I would say the hardest part of my role would be working with individuals who are not team players but I work to overcome this by having regular meetings.
I enjoy the variety of my core and non-core roles and getting involved with events both inside and outside of work
