Enjoyable place to work.
I enjoyed working at Glasgow Caledonian University for the few months I was there and I was looking forward to being asked back to do the same job again, but it was not to be. But I would still be happy to be contacted at a later date if the situation changes.

Research Assistant
Staff were very friendly. Work-life balance was very flexible. A very happy place to work. Management was always open to new ideas. Every day in the lab at GCU was different and this was good because you learned new things on a daily basis.

Fun and Rewarding Place of Employment
Typically I would deal with legal cases from employment disputes to tenancy issues. This would involve liaising with and managing client relationships, and negotiating with opposition solicitors. I also speak to pupils and schools interested in studying law, delivering tailored 'street law' sessions as a result. I work with a team I am responsible for and answer to the Director of the Clinic and the Management Board as a whole, of which I am also a member. The hardest part of this is negotiating and often debating with opposing counsel, but being able to help clients is undoubtedly rewarding.
Pros
Great Experience
Cons
Lack of Wages

Supportive with good skill development
An excellent and friendly work environment that provided on the job training and gave me valuable paid experiences which allowed me to develop many transferable skills. Indeed through my 3 years working as a student mentor I have become a very confident and competent communicator as my work within this role often required me to coach and encourage students to choose a career path and break down the stereotypical barriers they hold towards further education. This was achieved through a variety of workshops with students which involved a mixture of presentations, group work and one to one mentoring.
Pros
Meeting and interacting with a wide range of people
Cons
Not enough hours
