Final News from London
Obviously, the Erasmus project is not only work. There is also time for sightseeing, shopping and socializing, both after work and on the weekend.
IT WAS GREAT! Thank you very much...

Pius Ditachmair @ SRi Executive
Fortunately, I only have to answer internal calls and don’t have to test my English skills with important clients of SRi Executive, which is the company I am working at for two weeks.
SRi is a globally acting sports recruitment office and its headquarters is located right in the city centre of London next to Victoria Station and near Buckingham Palace. SRi is searching for managers on junior and senior level for their customers who are active in sports. Among their clients are famous companies such as Chelsea FC, FC Barcelona, Adidas, the UFC, the WWE, the NBA and Red Bull, to name just a few of them. That really impressed me!
SRi is a very young, dynamic and cool company, so it’s no surprise I am feeling in good hands here. My tasks cover a wide range of things, such as helping my supervisor with general administration work, as well as lighten the marketing department’s workload, by creating social media posts, presentations and the weekly newsletter. I even had the opportunity to learn how to build a microsite on their website which - like the other tasks I mentioned- has the purpose of connecting potential candidates to their customers even faster.
Luckily, we also have some free time here. This allowed me to explore some beautiful places and getting a feel for London. When going out on the weekend to have fun in the pubs of Camden Town you will also meet many friendly people to chat with. I am very thankful to be able to gain these experiences and glad that people at our school are making this possible.

Schnitzeljagd für die 1. Klassen
Mit großer Begeisterung haben die Schülerinnen und Schüler der ersten Klassen an einer Schnitzeljagd teilgenommen. Im Rahmen dieser Schnitzeljagd mussten die "neuen" Schülerinnen und Schüler unsere Schule erkunden.
Neben der räumlichen Suche nach EDV-Räumen, Turnsaal oder Übungsfirma lernten die Schüler auch gleich unsere Frau Dir. Mag. Ackerlauer, das gesamte Personal, wie Sekretariat, Schulwart, Buffetverkäuferinnen kennen.
In 20 Fragen bzw. Stationen sammelten die Schüler Puzzleteile und zum Abschluss legten sie diese zu einem Bild zusammen. Als Belohnung gab es Schokolade für unsere neuen "Fohlen".
Nochmals HERZLICH WILLKOMMEN in der BHAK Linz-Auhof!

A typical workday starts at 9:30 and ends at 5 o'clock pm. In my one hour long lunch break I like to take a walk through the city and get in touch with new people.
Selin Bayhan @ Reynard Resources
The company that I have the honor to work for is called Renard Resources and is located in Covent Garden, Central London. It is a recruitment agency which provides work force in the hospitality sector for five star hotels and fine dining events. Basically, the candidates who are looking for a position come into the office, take part in an onboarding training session and after all the administrative work has been done, they get assigned to shifts at one of Renard‘s clients.
At work I was able to make a full circle experience. From the moment the candidate gets invited to the office until the last step of uploading their data onto the database I was able to experience every step and contribute to each while working in this company. Since I worked in a recruitment company two years ago as a candidate myself, it is very interesting to see the processes of this niche from the administrative perspective.

News from London, part 3
Leonhard Ditachmair @ Alliance Solicitors
Working abroad is a really great opportunity given to us by our school in cooperation with Erasmus+. It’s my first working experience in a different country and especially in a city like London, work is getting a lot of fun.
A typical work day starts, later than at other places, at 10:30. That’s why I usually use the time going to the city or reading a book before I start working. As I work for an immigration solicitor I get in touch with a lot of different accents and people, which is good training for the multicultural 8 million city of London and is also particularly interesting because of Brexit. My main task is answering phone calls and writing letters to clients. But as I realized that the company needs help with layouts and digital organisation, I offered to help in this matter, too. So, I could eventually use my Office Management skills in practise!
But being in the city of London, work is not all we do here. Normally my friends and I will meet up in the city to visit some gorgeous buildings or just go to a nice pub. Through the combination of working in this city and doing a lot of sightseeing here, I gained a great feel for this incredible city. I am actually living here! (At least for two weeks)
