Controlled yet welcoming work environment
Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) – Nottingham – 11 May 2018
A typical day at work consisted of a 9 am start most days, however because of university studies I had the opportunity to inform my employer of the days I could work and could not work in advance. In terms of progression, I learnt how to effectively use a spreadsheet, attention to detail and developed my concentration levels. I also had access to sensitive material whilst working as a data entry clerk such as a students' passport photograph, visa application and University Approval forms.
The management hierarchy where I was stationed was relaxed yet controlled as each member had a certain role to play in order to ensure the Project was completed on time and within budget. In terms of work culture the staff were friendly, easy to get along with which made my time working here more pleasurable and I also developed my social skills as well as the task at hand.
The hardest part of the job was not to break your concentration and be distracted. To overcome this I was allowed to relocate to another office within the building to get the job done quickly, yet efficiently. On the contrary, the most enjoyable part of the job was the atmosphere, the people and knowing that you are part of a fundamental university project being a valuable asset in their progression.
Excellent working environment
