Easy work for flexible hours
As a student advocate I was able to work around my studies. Was very convenient and got appropriate training for the work I was doing. Would recommend any student this job, to support their studies.

Great University
I really enjoyed doing my BA course here. I made friends for life and I found the relationship between professors and students to be an excellent balance between professional and casual. Not to mention they truly were experts in their fields. Very well recruited team for my course indeed (Creative Writing)

Nepotism is alive and well in this culture
If your face does not fit and you have an ounce of intelligence then the middle management and people you work with frown on initiative.
Managers are quick to adopt any good ideas you have and put forward as their own .

A set of older staff who have built a culture to suite their working practices and lock out new staff who evoke honesty and integrity .Staff the hardest to work with as most of them have no interest in providing a quality service to the students.

Productive and Friendly
Everyone in the lab is lovely and willing to help if any help is needed.

Working hours vary depending on how much is needed to be done within the day or week.


Flexi hours are available if you are a permeate staff.

Don't apply unless you've just graduated from there...
My experience of working/interviewing at Edge Hill is that you have to have just graduated (the younger the better it seems), or you already work there.... They have also now made the interview process so difficult and lengthy that only god knows what it is they're looking for. Certainly not experience and qualifications: someone to go to the pub after work with i'm guessing.....

Enjoyable
Guided parents and students to where they have to registered to start the new academic year. Helped them move in at their allocated dorms. Job was only for 2 days (8 hours work a day) and it was fun as you could relax with your mates and make new friends

Lovely place - needs to evolve!
Lovely place and people - a nice place to work. that is annoying in its bureaucracy. The most senior managers dont have real leadership skills or experience and the lower managers who know what needs to get done have too many layers to go through so lose the will against it all.

Great place for a short stay.

Good place if you are senior enough to have some semblance of decision making ability.

Bullying Culture and Limited Opportunities for Advancement
A bullying culture is part of everyday life for lecturers at this university. Management are fully aware of this and turn a blind eye.
Where I worked, the best interests of the students came last in the HoD's list of priorities. Junior staff were persistently used as scapegoats for the incompetence of management. A very unhealthy place to work.

The only positives were the students, who were incredibly committed, driven and a pleasure to work with.
Pros
Great students/Nice campus
Cons
Bullying Culture

Great for a flexible job
Most jobs are based around when you can work unless they are jobs that are needed for specific days or events such as welcome Sunday. The pay is good and is some extra cash in your pocket as a student.
Pros
Flexible
Cons
More hours wanted
