Thomas Foody

Office Administrator

When did you start working Alia?

April 2012

Briefly describe your role at Alia.

Office administration involves everything from day-to-day reception and office management, to coordination of government reporting, school events, and anything else that needs doing.

Why do you enjoy working at Alia?

I really like being able to give back to the school that gave me so much when I was a student here. It’s really great to be able to contribute to such an accepting and open environment, while developing important professional skills and maintaining some creative autonomy. I feel like working at Alia means much more than working in any other office job; I feel it enables the existence of an environment that allows anyone to flourish.

 

What do you get up to with your time outside school?

I’m definitely a Foody, by name and by nature, and I enjoy cooking and experimenting with new recipes, as well as going out to try out new restaurants and cafés with friends.

What else should we know about you?

I’ve always enjoyed studying languages, and have a working proficiency in German, as well as beginner-level Spanish.
