Employee stories

Dhara Padhiar - Web and Digital Content Officer

"What makes my job great is the variety of work that comes through – no two days are the same. One day I could be redesigning webpages and the next, I could be doing something completely different like analysing a campaign or an area of our website. NTU is a diverse university with so much to offer and there’s heaps of passion across the board, that’s why I think it’s a special place to work."

Mohsen Rahmani - Professor in Engineering

“I received very strong support from NTU for initiating the Advanced Optics and Photonics lab from scratch and also for applying for external funding opportunities. I believe NTU’s support has enabled me to flourish and reach my potential in the best possible way."

Ofelia Palermo - Principal Lecturer

"At NTU there are plenty of opportunities for flexible working options, and I have always found Heads of Departments are keen to address questions and explore solutions to support their team. NTU offers a wide range of support initiatives and activities - both for students and staff; therefore, it is all about being pro-active and seeking out the most suitable type of support available for you."

Emily Gill - Social Media Manager

“I feel like I have the best job in the world! The role is so creative and social media changes every day, so no two days are ever the same. Working in social media means I get to experience and learn about lots of different areas of NTU and the work we are doing in those fields – be it amazing research, inspiring students or colleagues, and so much more."

Harry Franklin - Planning and Performance Executive

"I began my career at NTU on the graduate development programme working as an Innovation Project Coordinator within Strategic Planning and Change. After a really enjoyable year, I applied for a permanent role within the same team as a Planning and Performance Executive, and I was fortunate enough to be given the position. Being able to see the direct positive effect of my team’s work within a variety of processes and areas at NTU is very rewarding, it’s the best part of my job."
