My role at the ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre

I have worked for ZERO2FIVE since October 2017 in the Business Operations Team.

As part of Business Operations, I am involved in the management of departmental databases, procurement, booking travel and arranging other purchases as required.

My main role is looking after the contract management for all projects undertaken by ZERO2FIVE. This involves checking paperwork is correct and up-to-date, verifying that the correct data has been gathered and ensuring the relevant signatures are collected.

Previous Experience

I have been in administrative roles since 2009.

My previous job saw me helping a shared service centre set up a new team for managing the recruitment for the London Met police. This involved a lot of database testing and travel to and from London. Once the team was set up, I was part of the PC recruitment so had an extensive amount of calls, emails and applications to sift; this was a customer service based role.

I have not previously worked for a university but I have worked with other government departments.
