A day in the life of a STEM Access Officer in the United Kingdom

How I found out about the job

HELOA Jiscmail

Where I hope to be in 5 years

To continue working in HE but to move across to recruitment or marketing.

My advice to students considering work

Start looking now. Get loads of work experience. Build your CV with every opportunity. Put yourself in positions of leadership and responsibility. Constantly update your CV.

It's a competitive world - just having a degree isn't enough anymore. If you know your weaknesses - work on them, for example if you're shy do an assertiveness course.

What I do

I work in Widening Participation in Hertfordshire on the Aimhigher programme.

Skills I use and how I developed them

Extracurricular skills:
Being a student ambassador.

What I like most

Changing the attitudes of parents and students.

What I like least

Data analysis.

What would I change? I would have liked this position I'm in now to have come with more responsibility as well as the increase in salary that I did get.
