My name is Kate Radcliff and I'm an Information Systems Management student at the University of Chester.
Working for the Informatics Centre for the past few weeks has been interesting and enjoyable. Throughout the experience I have felt like there is a friendly and helpful team behind me for support whenever needed.
My work experience has been based around creating an iOS mobile application for the company Acrosec (http://www.acrosecuk.com/), so they are able to create printable reports from a form after their scenting detection dogs search airplanes at major international aviation hubs.
In order to achieve making our application I have had to organise and attend weekly meetings with our client. Before working for the Informatics Centre I had never participated in meetings before, therefore this was hugely beneficial for me, as my communication skills are now slowly improving.
