Department of Plant Sciences



As the department’s receptionist, I provide daily reception and administrative support to the department acting as a first point of contact for staff, students and visitors.

This could involve programming access cards, printing, directing visitors to the correct meeting spaces, handling incoming and outgoing mail and fielding emails and telephone calls. I also manage the room bookings for the department and assist with AV set up for lecturers both internal and external.

Alongside my reception duties, I assist the Digital Communications Co-ordinator with the departmental and Alumni newsletters, website edits and social media; and the departments teaching administrators (undergraduate and postgraduate) with ad-hoc administrative tasks.

I hold a voluntary position as a Wellbeing Advocate for the department which I find very fulfilling and have been involved in running events for the department to help improve the wellbeing of our staff and students.
