I love living and working in Aberystwyth, a university that is so critically important to its local community, while also seeing the impact of the university far beyond. I love the variety of the role No day is the same. I might be visiting farms, looking at community involvement in our arts centre, and of course visiting research or meeting students. For me watching students and staff develop and move on in their lives and careers and being able to create the environment where that can happen that is the key reason I do this job.
