Good work/life balance, few opportunities for progression
Faculty Administrator (Former Employee) – Liverpool, UK – 1 December 2018
Hours were good with flexible working available and management were generally straight forward. There was little opportunity for progression and the job security was lacking due to many posts being offered as fixed term contracts.
English and Creative Writing Student Consultant (Former Employee) – Liverpool – 25 July 2018
Even though, I was only consulting within lessons the members of staff are forthcoming and helpful, which helps create and amicable and approachable environment. The students, subsequently, become far easier to talk to as they are willing to share and divulge in their own practices of writing.
Excellent collaborative and engaging working environment that gave me the tools to go on and achieve great things in the field of academia. The staff at LJMU gave me the freedom and independence to develop myself as not only a researcher and teacher but as a person, whom I developed my confidence.

Work Experience (Former Employee) – Liverpool, Merseyside – 26 January 2018
As I was doing work experience all of the students were friendly and so were the staff as you could have a good time and still get your work done. It was also a calm environment because people wouldn't be pressuring you into doing any work they would come and help.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Liverpool, Merseyside – 14 September 2017
Fun and challenging workplace where I learned a lot in the field of bio-mechanics, including how to use high tech software. The best part of the job was working to a deadline, where there was high pressure to get the job done.
My first professional role gave me the opportunity to be busy working over the summer. Gave me an insight to an office job. Learned how to use the complete Microsoft Office suite and to help, teach and entertain children through science days.
I really enjoyed working there. Great colleagues, great ambience and really helpful. I learned a lot, and start loving the job I did. I used to use printing machine, answer emails, prepare documents with world, excel or others.
