The administration works as a team in an everyday life, where we are the natural focal point for many diverse tasks and where it is therefore not only about our own tasks, but to a large extent also about common tasks. We are an administration in development, where organisation, collaboration, knowledge sharing and a positive feedback culture are the focal point of our work and daily life both internally in the administration, at the department and across the university.
We are a group of dedicated employees who take ownership of our tasks with great flexibility in the task solution and believe that everyone contributes to common development through a positive and professional attitude. We have a collaborative culture where we are happy and proud of our work and the results we achieve together.
The work assignments as an office student at the Department of Chemistry and Bioscience are exciting, challenging, and there are plenty of them. As a trainee, you can also expect a good working environment where you meet several wonderful teams, happy and helpful colleagues as well as the opportunity to influence the planning of your own tasks. We have lots of smiles and high spirits!
Our everyday life is very much about helping both the department's researchers and students, and the following are some of the tasks you as an office trainee help to solve:

- Data collection
- Study administration / administration e.g. exam planning
- Communication - Eg. planning / holding events
- PhD administration - Insight into processes that are part of a PhD course
“The Department of Chemistry and Bioscience is a great apprenticeship, where you are allowed to be responsible for your own work tasks. You get a good education, and if you ask questions about work assignments, it is seen as a plus rather than a minus. At the department, you are seen as part of the team, and your work is appreciated - you are not "just" a trainee" - Tina previous trainee in economy.
