Student Residents’ Assistant and Receptionist
University of Aberdeen
MARKETING: I organise and promote Scottish cultural events for the education and enjoyment of our international residents. To compete with the many student orientated social events in the city, I utilise social media, design and produce posters and flyers and book performance groups and individuals with a strong reputation. I regularly host popular music, food and storytelling events, bringing these traditional practises to a new and enthusiastic audience.
BRAND PROMOTION: The halls host the numerous potential residents and business visitors over the summer. I am a central point of contact for these groups, and a face of the University of Aberdeen brand. My role is to promote the values of the university and provide assistance to the visitors that may become students and residents in the year ahead. I provide pastoral care and help with cultural issues regularly. This positive, on-message contact is vital to the continued success of the university recruitment strategy.
IT SKILLS: I have developed fluency with the Microsoft Office package through constant use. Additionally I have experience with several independent administrative and booking software packages and am comfortable in their use as well as remaining adaptable to new systems. I also have experience with design software producing promotional material.
