Louisa Caine – Faculty Registrar

 Faculty of Humanities

 

 

Employment history
I started my career in HE working in SLAS as a Course Administrator looking after the pre-sessional students in September 2003. I moved to become and Senior Course Administrator. In 2007 I became School Manager in SSHLS and in July 2015 Faculty Registrar for FHSS.

I love working with students and being a CA/SCA. I believe I have excellent attention to detail, multi-tasking at busy times, willingness to take on additional tasks outside of my job role, all of which have helped me progress my career.

Taking opportunities

I decided to study a Foundation Degree in Business and Management after working for three years in SLAS, and then proceeded to take the top up and I graduated with a 2:1 three years ago. I have used skills gained whilst studying in my role as School Manager. I have taken on loads of additional training through Staff Development and a key to being promoted is the willingness to undertake training, putting myself forward for working groups outside of my role.

 

Experiences/Learning points

My strengths are remaining positive, always smiling and laughing when I can. Nothing is too much, being motivated and willing to learn new things. Good communication with my staff, sharing and pooling ideas has also helped me. I think the University is a great place to work but you need to work to develop yourself, jobs don't just appear. I have worked hard to get where I am by developing myself, taking on additional responsibilities, but also taking ownership and not saying 'That is not my job' has helped me. I hear this all the time and then people wonder why they do not move on with their own careers.
