Interesting environment, blending students imaginations with real world constructs
Given freedom to get tasks done in the most efficient order for you, with decent supervision if required.
Definitely enjoyed the interaction with multiple individuals of different disciplines that could always provide interesting viewpoints on the world and work as a whole.

The university is subject to some political infighting as departments seek funding for passion projects - if carefully managed it is a healthily challenging environment.

Perfect Part-Time job for when one has free time
The university looks after the ambassadors, the payment is really good and they have briefings for almost all jobs. It is a really good part-time job for when you have time, however, you should not rely on this job as a main income as you have to get accepted for different jobs.

Relaxing and worthwhile
• Expected to set up workstations across Campuses which would present it as appealing to students passing by to complete the survey
• Actively communicating with students in order to encourage them to complete the survey

• Working effectively in small teams which would change depending on shift and rotation. This required building a quick rapport with other staff in relatively short amount of time.
