Julie Davies

Job role: Administration

Describe what you do in your job. What is a typical day like?

I keep all sorts of records for the company. I keep financial records and put all the payments we make, and monies we receive into the company, onto an accounting software programme. I then make sure this matches what the bank statements say. I also make sure everyone gets paid (the right amount!) on payday. This means most of my time is spent sat at a desk, inputting information and checking that documents are correct. I also ensure we have the correct policies and guidelines in place to help everyone stay within government rules and regulations when they are doing their jobs. This part of the role involves online research and writing documents that are both up-to-date and useful for the staff. To start every day, I always check my 'to-do' list and make sure I have written down all the tasks that need doing on that date.

Was this your first job? What other jobs or work experience have you had?

I worked in a bank when I left school. I didn't like this very much - I liked the people but found it hard to do maths while a queue of customers were looking at me. I then trained as a teacher and taught for 5 years in a primary school. I wanted to try something new so started at Wolverhampton Arts + Museums service, working mainly in the art gallery. Sometimes I went into schools and taught art projects and other times I was showing teachers how to use the Art Gallery as an inspiration for a project in school. I loved working there! But cutbacks meant I had to find another job elsewhere and got an admin job in an office.

What process did you have to follow to get your job?

I was asked to do my present job as I was already doing the same role part-time within another company nearby. The company were looking for someone with experience of accurate record keeping and organisation skills and my previous jobs showed that I had these skills.

What is great about your job? What part of your job do you enjoy the most?

I like making sure that records are kept accurately. I like things to be accurate and in order. Working in an office and with a team of people of all ages is important to me. I couldn't just work from home and not meet lots of people on a daily basis. The people I work with all support each other and knowing that there is someone there to ask if I'm unsure of something, or who I can support in return, is brilliant. Knowing I am a valued member of a team is very important and being in an office means I can take part in discussions about improvements to what we do and be part of the team.

What training do you get at work to help you do your job role?

As part of a small team I look for training myself and make sure I'm up-to-date with the latest employment laws through things like online courses. I research the government information and sign up for their newsletters to ensure everything is up-to-date.

What skills are required to do your job?

Patience and accuracy. I need to check things carefully - without getting bored! Creating checklists to make sure everything is completed accurately helps all the people I work with.

What role-specific qualifications do you think are needed to do your job?

I am lucky as my employer was able to see that I could do the job without having to check if I had specific qualifications before deciding to employ me. My NVQ Level 3 Line Management qualification that I gained while I was at the Arts+Museum service has been invaluable though. I got this qualification in my spare time whilst working full-time at the gallery.

Name the top three skills needed for your job

Being organised. Good time management - to make sure jobs are done on time. Adaptability - when you work in a small team you have to be prepared to do anything to help out.

This is my first job. As a designer within PLANit global I get many opportunities to work with plenty of different briefs to create artwork and this really helps me develop my abilities and also broaden my CV.

I started in a 5 hour a week work placement in my sixth form and after two years I went through a short interviewing process where my portfolio was accessed to see if my artwork and abilities meet the standard of the company and I was able to have a career within the company.

What is great about your job? What part of your job do you enjoy the most?

Firstly, the amount of work I create allows me to gain plenty of new skills and develop my current abilties. Secondly, the ethics of the company and the many uses of the company for everyone makes it a very enjoyable project as you can truly see how the business can help people. Finally, I have great peers that teach me about the working life whether I am learning new creative skills from the creative director and development team or I am learning about how businesses function function from HR people or the CEOs.

What training do you get at work to help you do your job role?

I get to learn from my direct peer, which is the creative director, about broadening my abilities in design and venturing into new softwares. I have learned more about video editing, 3D rendering and 2D graphics as a whole because I am able to be tutored by my peer when its needed.

What skills are required to do your job?

There are a range of aesthetic designs you must be able to create such as edited videos, 3D animations, 2D artwork for promotional use or inside the business, so you must have a broad and indepth sense of multiple digital softwares mainly within the Adobe creative suite but also to include prototyping and 3d design softwares.

What role-specific qualifications do you think are needed to do your job?

As a creative role some businesses can directly employ you from a portfolio review and interview as that truly shows how good of a designer you are, but some companies especially bigger companies will ask university graduates with a degree in the field before even looking into your portfolio.

Damon Bakker

Job role: IT

Describe what you do in your job. What is a typical day like?

I am mainly working on the planitglobal website you're working on right now. I work with other developers in a team and try to make our product a bit better every development cycle. My job involves sitting behind the computer a lot, but it's quite fun if you're interested in programming. Some planning is also part of my job, we need to allocate our resources wisely so we can deliver new features on time, this is mostly done in discussion with the other team members.

Was this your first job? What other jobs or work experience have you had?

This is my first real Job, but I've done other jobs but they either not related to programming, most of my experience has come from internships.

What process did you have to follow to get your job?

I did a work placement at PLANit Global. For a duration of 20 weeks I worked for PLANit Global as a developer, working on the first iterations of the platform and learning about the goal PLANit Global had in mind. After the 20 weeks I got offered a job and promotion to lead developer and thus I started my real job at PLANit Global.

What is great about your job? What part of your job do you enjoy the most?

The great thing about my job is that the features I built are used by people everyday. Working with a team is also a big part to why this job is so much fun, there is always someone in the office to discuss your ideas with you and converse over interesting topics regarding the website. I love programming things in my free time, so it doesn't really feel like a 'job' as much as some jobs are, so it think it's great.

What training do you get at work to help you do your job role?

I generally just train myself through practicing and reading up about new things I don't quite understand yet.

What skills are required to do your job?

The most important are discipline and a lot of knowledge and staying alerted to new things.You constantly have to keep learning and you need to be a good team-player to be successful.

What role-specific qualifications do you think are needed to do your job?

I do not require any role specific qualifications for my role but you can if you want too. There are some qualifications related to my job role which you feel may help you on your career journey.

I really like the freedom in being a developer at PLANit. I always get a say in developing new parts of the product and I'm treated like a team member rather than a code monkey. As a developer, I only need to use my laptop for work, so it doesn't matter if I work at home/in office or what hours I choose to work as long as the work is being completed on time!

I did not receive any training for my role. I am mostly self-taught.
