I felt as if I learnt a lot from this role. Everyone who I worked with was very understanding and helped me when needed. On a typical day I would great clients, help organise documents, input data into the Cohort software, research and compile data, assist in setting up new accounts, engaged in helping to sort the filing system and attended meetings to put forward ideas.
As I was working at the NHS, confidentiality was key. I learnt that keeping company information private is very important. This is because the NHS has got a lot of private information about individuals, so I had to make sure this personal information was kept secured and not accessible to people who didn't have a valid reason to access it.
The hardest part of the job was when I had to put forward an idea within a meeting. This is because the department I was working in was of a very high standard, so putting forward ideas to improve the organisation was difficult, however, being an IT student I was able to put forward IT-related ideas to make the department more efficient.
The most enjoyable part of this job is when I had to hand out leaflets and get people to sign up for a fitness class. I found this very enjoyable as I was able to meet new people and potentially help to improve the fitness of individuals.
