Area Covered: Devon
Work Experience Summary: Though small Marjon Student Union is extremely complex and diverse, operating in many areas requiring it’s staff to be flexible with a wide area of expertise. As General Manger I may have to switch between the VAT treatment of a rugby team social membership to advising lay committees on constitutional matters or licensing law.
Human resources and people management.
I have kept up to date with all relevant employment law through membership of an employment club. This is organised by lawyers and takes the form of twice yearly extensive training and networking sessions. I am experienced in recruitment, dismissal, redundancies and managing people through difficult personal periods.
I regularly deliver training on a one to one basis or with larger groups.
I have attended much training regarding my own personal development and to motivate others.
Financial and administration
I installed computerised accounts in to my current office and am familiar with sage accountancy. I prepare budgets and am familiar with VAT regulations, which in the case of this student union is far from straight forward. I designed all the administrative control systems that allow information to be processed and checked. I write the reports for all the relevant authorities including the Charity Commission and work very closely with two sets of auditors and our bank manager.
I have been able to increase trading through developing opportunities, observing standards in customer service and thorough stock control. Working to very tight budgets I have had to fine-tune my commercial skills, initiating open to buy’ budgets and controlling staff and other costs.
Health and safety and legislation.
I am required to keep up o date with all laws in this area and to pay particular attention to insurance requirements and any subsequent claims.
