Our Temp Administrator, Alex Skinner, was today awarded the 'Temp of the Quarter Winner' prize by Dawn Letchford from Gray & Associates Recruitment Services.

She was nominated by staff within The School of Public Policy for her invaluable contribution to the smooth running of the School's administration.

Alex’s award included a £50 amazon voucher, bunch of flowers, winner’s certificate and a Gray & Associates clock.


“In Alex's current role she has gained a variety of experience and all of the work she takes on is of a very high standard. She has played a huge part in the department, and in all of our big events from the seminar series to the Constitution Unit summer party that we hold.

One specific example I would like to highlight is where Alex has recently help cover our HR and finance administration, as our administrator unexpectedly left suddenly. Alex has had to deal with a larger work load than normal and with the nature of the work that has been very different to her usual workload, it has been an impressive achievement that she has taken it on and completed it brilliantly.

I can't recommend her highly enough for this award and I’m sure my other colleagues would agree as well, she is a strong addition to our administrative team, from my own perspective she has been a great support to me and my work and I wouldn’t know what I would do without her advice, support, expertise and professional manner.”
Ben Webb

“I would like to add to Ben’s endorsement that Alex be made Temp of the Quarter.  She has proved to be a conscientious and valuable member of the administrative team in the time that she has been with us and has demonstrated both initiative and enthusiasm in all the challenges that have arisen during a somewhat changeable time in the department. 

She has been a huge help to me on a personal level during Open Day events and has willingly ‘gone the extra mile’ when completing tasks.

I therefore wholeheartedly recommend her for this award.”
Helen Elliot

“I support this most strongly! It would be great if we could recognise the contribution that Alex has made. She has been a great support to me, others in the team and the department as a whole while she has been working with us. It has been a very busy period and we’ve lost a key member of staff in the team recently and I’m not sure what I would have done without her!”
Nicky Henson

“I would like to nominate Alexandra skinner for her valuable and continuing contribution to the School of Public Policy admin team, which I am sure all my colleagues here at SPP would also be happy to endorse.”
Katerina Syriou

“She has been a great addition to our team and is always on hand to help with various tasks. She is both professional and reliable and she has brought great amounts of positive energy to the department too.”
