First Year College (FYC) was very fortunate to be able to appoint April Missale as Administrative Support Officer in March 2020. In this role April provides high level administrative support to the Dean, and the office and academic staff of the college. Whilst April works closely with FYC staff, her role often requires her to liaise with various other staff and departments University-wide. Her ability to quickly learn and pick up new processes and systems has enabled her to rapidly find her way around a very fast-paced and constantly changing environment.
Whilst April has worked in a number of roles comprising administrative tasks and responsibilities, her position prior to her commencement in the FYC was Practice Manager in a veterinary clinic. There April had responsibility for, among other things:
- administrative support to a large team
- maintaining client records
- inducting new staff
- stock control/ordering
- profit and loss statements
- coordinating meetings.
Prior to this, April had other roles in the veterinary area including Head Veterinary Nurse and Surgical Nurse.
All these roles have provided April with the skills and expertise required to work successfully as part of the First Year College team.
