Sensoteq are proud to introduce our Office and Accounts Administrator, Niketa. We asked Niketa a few questions about her job and life in and outside of Sensoteq.
Q. What sort of duties do you have at work?
A. Bit of everything! 😊 Logistics, purchasing, HR duties, finance and accounts reconciliations, reception duties, organising everyday office essentials, handling office contracts
Q. What’s the most exciting part of your job?
A. As my role is so varied, I always have something going on. I enjoy planning for events within the business
Q. If you could have a career in anything, what would it be?
A. I always wanted to be involved in wedding planning, I love organising and I think it would be so special being involved in such a big day! Or I would love to run an animal sanctuary – obviously while continuing working for Sensoteq!
Q. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A. A dancer. I have danced since the age of 3, so I always wanted to be a backing dancer.
Q. What’s your most-used productivity hack?
A. Notes! I take notes for everything. Notes and to-do lists. I also live by my calendar. Everything has to go into the calendar, I find these things keep me organised and productive
Q. Do you like traveling? What’s the best place you’ve travelled to? Do you have any vacations planned?
A. I love to travel! My partner and I are a little bit obsessed with Vegas at the moment and have been the last 3 years in a row. 2020 would have been our 4th year…. But Covid! We cannot wait to get back once travelling allows it. I am also obsessed with travel hacks and organisation for travel, I almost treat that as a hobby!
Q. Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?
A. I have discovered that I am quite creative. I enjoy making decorative pieces and upcycling for my house. I find this calming and enjoyable.
Q. Do you have any pets?
A. I have 2 furbabies – 2 female miniature schnauzers
Q. Are you a sports fan? Who are your favourite teams?
A. Oh yes! All the sports! Football team is Chelsea. I am South African, so my rugby team is of course the Springboks. I am an ice hockey season ticket holder and my team is the Belfast Giants.
Q. What’s your favorite thing to do on the weekends?
A. Depends on the mood and the weather. If it’s a grey day, I love to cuddle up on the sofa and watch movies or a boxset. If it’s a lovely day, I enjoy getting together with family or friends, sit outside with the dogs running around, having a few drinks and listening to music.
