Friendly, exhilarating and varied experiences.
Working as a poll clerk for Rotherham Council opened my eyes to many different peoples, places and mind sets. A typical day would involve interacting with people of different political views, walks of life and mind sets.
The hardest part of the job was keeping a level head when tensions were high as arguments and in some cases fights break out because of differences in political ideas. In such cases it is important to act quickly and remain calm in order to diffuse the situation.
