Great experience for woking in an office
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Manchester, ENG – 1 February 2015
I was selected for the Bright Futures Project, an unique UK-wide student society network in Universities and Schools that supports school leavers in enabling a foundation to move into the work place. I spent an academic year working at the Trafford Housing Trust. Here I completed modules in a variety of departments which allowed me to understand how an office operates. Additionally, I was required to undertake individual tasks within the finance department, such as processing financial transactions, responding to and sending correspondence. In addition, I was involved with Microsoft programming and responding to customer feedback. I completed online courses in customer focus, records management, data protection, introduction to safeguarding, information assurance and introduction to equality and diversity. I also learned the key aspects of working in a team and communicating well with my colleagues to enable a positive outcome.
