Work Experience

Position


Job title: Human Resources Assistant
Employer: Aberystwyth University
Date of employment: January 2018 – Present
Summary of role:

I currently work in a fast-paced Human Resources Department. The role requires me to prioritise work while juggling multiple tasks. Due to the nature of the role I have a number of responsibilities that require a number of different skills.
My main responsibility is to process the contracts for new university staff members as well as any other contractual issues required by existing staff members. This requires me to liaise across all departments of the university and communicate with all members of staff; from hospitality assistants to Directors.
As part of my role I also organise and conduct the new staff inductions which takes place once a month. This requires me to be friendly and welcoming to new members of staff while also being a source of information. In addition to this I have also been required to train new members of the Human Resources department in our processes and systems.
I am also involved in the recruitment process and am required to sit on interview panels when recruiting new members of staff. This requires me to present myself in a professional and formal manner while being as respectful and calming as possible for the candidates.
Another aspect of my role is to help new international members of staff to apply for their visas. This aspect of my role requires high level communication skills as often English is not their first language. I am also required to be accurate with the information I provide as accuracy is very important when applying for a visa.
The final main aspect of my role is to represent the university on open days. This requires me to speak with potential students and promote the university. I enjoy this role as speaking with students can be less formal and more fun compared to talking with staff in a professional sense.

One of the most challenging aspect of this role was to remain calm while working in a high pressure environment.

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

Fortunately while growing up I was able to travel to a number of countries with my family. Being given the opportunity to do instilled a desire within me to experience as many new cultures as I could.
When deciding which university to attend I knew I wanted to pick one that gave me the option to travel abroad. Having been on holiday to different countries for no longer than three weeks I longed to be able to live abroad for an extended period of time to become immersed within a new culture. I was accepted on a study abroad placement and lived in the USA for a year, away from my family. Although the prospect was daunting, once I moved to the United States I made the absolute most of the opportunity and loved every moment of it.
After returning from the USA to complete my university degree it was not long before I began looking in to new opportunities to live abroad. I looked towards teaching as an option because I feel we are in the best possible time to become a foreign language teacher as the world is more connected than ever.
Having made many South Korean friends during my time at university I was set on moving to Korea to become an English teacher. The idea of teaching had always appealed to me while seeming like a sufficient challenge. I have many younger cousins and always got along well with them and went on a short work placement to a primary school so I am not worried about interacting with children or young adults. And, one of the favourite aspects of my current role is to be able to train new members of staff.
I feel like combining my ability to connect with kids, my ability to teach and my desire to experience a new culture; teaching English overseas seems like the perfect next step in my career and life.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

In my current role as Human Resources Assistant I have been required to undertake undertake many duties that share the same skills as a teacher would require. Everyday I work in a fast-paced environment that requires me to be adaptable with my duties. If an urgent piece of work comes in then I will need to change my plans for what I will be doing that day so I have become very adaptable.
I often have to communicate with students and new members of staff which requires me to be friendly and welcoming. On the other hand I have to train new members of staff and present information to groups or existing staff members which requires me to be professional and informative.
Additionally, I have been required to assist individuals from all over the world in applying for their visas. Because, for many of them, English is not their first language, I have had experience in communicating through a language barrier.
I believe all of these skills along with what I have learnt while completing my TEFL course will allow me perform well as an overseas teacher.
