Marketing Officer (Current Employee) – Brighton – 18 April 2017
Full of a mix of lovely hard-working people supporting many who just coast along.
Whilst the university is ambitious it struggles to act upon its plans - the lack of clear simple processes and siloed mentalities between departments clogs up people's time with unnecessary work and prevents any meaningful change taking place. Many of the senior managers have been in place for 20+ years.
The university is very family friendly but unfortunately, the trade-off is a poor salary and limited career progression. The lack of rewarded annual reviews/performance management also encourages many colleagues across the business to just do what's required.
Good pension, 30 days holiday after 5 years, flexible working and family friendly.
Expensive onsite food, poor salaries, no career progression opportunities, no annual review process or bonuses.
Head Chef (Current Employee) – Sprinters Restaurant Hillbrow Campus Eastbourne – 13 April 2017

Research Fellow (Current Employee) – Brighton – 29 November 2016
It's a typical teaching university. The School of Computing doesn't do any serious research and the support from the University is minimal. If you want to be just a lecturer is fine if you want to advance your career as a research it's a place to avoid.
Active pharmacy (Current Employee) – Moulsecoomb and Bevendean – 27 November 2016
Supportive team leader, I love working with my fellow pharmacy sudents, I have learnt to take responsibilities of my actions and also be attentive, going out to meet elders and also their carers is so much fun as we learn about their medications and how to correct them if necessary under the supervision of a licensed pharmacist
Senior Lecturer (Former Employee) – Brighton – 9 November 2016
Over the past few years I found the University a very stressful and unsupportive place to work. I became disillusioned working with people who no longer appeared to have the focus I believed was necessary to equip students for the workplace. Many academic as more concerned about their own progression at the cost of others
Open Day Assistant (Current Employee) – Brighton – 27 June 2016
It was required of me that I provide effective customer service and manage tasks under timed conditions. There were many tasks such as replenish stocks at the clothing aisle to the frozen aisle. I have gained a broad knowledge in the retail sector.
Student Ambassador (Current Employee) – Brighton – 8 June 2016
part time event work, easy employment for a student. competitive as it works on a first come first serve basis, however they have always informed me of upcoming work days throughout the time i was at university.
Dear Sir/Madam I am writing to express my interest for a yearlong placement. I am currently in my second year studying BA (Hons) Business Information Systems at the University of Brighton.
My working experience has taught me the skills needed to contribute towards the effective running of an organisation; For example, when I worked at a fruit packing factory in Faversham I had to work at a considerable speed whilst safely overseeing the production line machinery, which taught me how to work under pressure. When I worked as a waiter, I had direct contact with the customers in a busy environment and learnt how to handle their needs politely and efficiently, and to provide high quality customer service. I am proficient in correcting faults with computers as well as installing software. As a result, I now consider that in addition to my strong theoretical skills, I have a good understanding of how to work with computer software and maintain IT security when doing so
Along with my paid work,more... I also have experience of voluntary work with a local charity, KRAN. This gives me the opportunity to meet new people and be part of their training and induction as mentors for young people. Similarly, while studying at university, I have been working as a student ambassador.
I aspire to have a career where I can use the skills that I have developed through studying, and apply them to a professional role. This would enable me to develop these skills, and to gain further IT knowledge. It would be a privilege to work for iZettle during my placement year, because I believe I can learn so much from such a great company. Thank you very much for considering my application and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Yours faithfully,less
