"It is a multifaceted job working with a team of people from various professions and with various abilities.
" This job is very fulfilling and lively. I have to show proof of initiative, and I am autonomous in the organisation of missions. The scientific and technical subjects are interesting. The secretary job has changed a lot. The computing equipment is efficient, and we often have to train to use new tools."
