Radio Silence

Apologies. We have been moonlighting in the Main Office - doing a bit of web design.  It hurts.  And we're running out of patience. There are yards, acres in fact, of jpegs to get through.  Years of image making and silliness - time spent away from our desks, so we've only got ourselves to blame.... Continue Reading →

It is deadline day – us old typists have waited a long time.

By Midnight tonight, all UK companies over 250 employees will have to register their gender pay gap figures and Pippa will get a leaving present. Since December 2016, the University of Admin's Humanoid Resources have been doing all sorts of naughty things to massage those particular statistics - toxic HR smoothies, abductions, cryogenics.. This seems... Continue Reading →

We’ve got to wait a few days..

This is an official message from Poodlepods Main Office - we have deleted the book face.

Here, at the University of Admin, we do not condone blocking an entire higher education establishment's sewerage system in a fit of career frustration. ... Continue Reading →

Well-being at Work

Whilst the jury is out, deciding whether or not to hyphen wellbeing or not, we will focus today on not getting stressed about the little things in life, no ranting and raving, stomping about, throwing our toys out of the pram about tiny punctuation idiosyncrasies for us! Here in Narragonia, it is Mothering Sunday and... Continue Reading →

We hate to brag..

..but here at the University of Admin we are proud to be ahead of the curve.  Well, it is cutting-edge art and all. We're talking mops.  A University of Oxford academic has taken a snap of a cleaner, scrubbing the International Women's Day graffiti off some steps, as other men look on - great photo....

What is an Artistypist?

An artistypist is a creative individual who has spent years in office-support employment, gladly contributing to the career excellence of others, only to discover a large pay gap and a career coffin lid nailed shut with hammer blows of low expectation.  Rather than run off to HR (like any normal person) the artistypist will embark...
