What do our employees say about us?
What I appreciate most about my work at the Centre of Administration and Operations is the good staff relations, thanks to the bosses. I enjoy my work in the IT department and I also like working with people – over the years I have learnt a lot from my colleagues, so I am now able to provide others with advice myself in a number of areas. It’s great to have such a nice job.
I started working for the Centre of Administration and Operations in 2013 when I was still a student. Now, thanks to the career development support I've received, I'm working as a finance manager at the Technology Transfer Office. I enjoy learning new things and being in contact with interesting and inspiring people from the Academy institutes. The Centre of Administration and Operations is my first employer and I can safely say I don't want any other.
I came to the Centre of Administration and Operations as a lawyer when my son was one year old — it’s great that I have been able to increase my hours gradually and so meet my family’s needs while still progressing in my career. I'm pleased that I can help my colleagues solve problems, simplify processes and find the best ways of ensuring that problems won't arise in future.
