What attracted you to come to work at RGU?
The emphasis on a better work/life balance, attractive holiday periods.

Describe working at RGU in three words.

Tell us something that has surprised you about working at RGU.
The down to earth nature of the teams. I thought an education sector based job would be quite rigid with everyone quietly working away but there is always time for a bit of banter.

Describe living in North East of Scotland in three words.
(and) friendly.

What are your favourite leisure/non-work activities and how well are they catered for in and around Aberdeen?
I attend a local jog Scotland group to encourage fitness and running. Reading – there are plenty of charity shops around for me to buy new books from!

What is your favourite place to go out for a meal in the North East and why?
We don’t eat out very much but I like going to Union Square for a treat as there is so much choice – can’t beat a lunch out at Cosmo with friends.

What would you say to anyone who is contemplating a move to RGU to persuade them it’s the right career move?
If you are looking to move somewhere where the emphasis is very much focused on having a better work/life balance, a mistake is treated as we are all human and where you feel like you will make a difference in the education sector then RGU is definitely the place to be.
