I joined the School of Philosophical, Anthropological and Film Studies in October 2004. My role as secretary in the Department of Social Anthropology is to provide secretarial support to academic staff, deal with students, visitors and general enquiries.
Within the role of secretary I am course administrator for sub honour students. This involves maintaining attendance registers, making students aware of tutorial attendances, where to obtain absence forms, information regarding essay deadlines, reading lists and processing academic alerts. At the beginning of each semester I prepare course material including reader packs, short loan, reading lists etc.
My job is varied, interesting and our office is a helpful, caring place where we provide support and assistance to students, academic staff and visitors.
