Peer mentor (Current Employee) – Manchester Metropolitan University – 2 November 2017
Typically as a peer mentor I would supervise a classroom of students and help them settle into university life and deal with any course related queries they may have. I've learned how to mentor people both my age and older, which I previously haven't done. The most rewarding part of the job is knowing that the students feel comfortable around me. It makes me feel as though I have done my job well as I am supposed to be someone who the students are able to come to.

I am only giving Manchester Metropolitan a 4 star since I was a student ambassador role, I could not rely on a consistent salary as the shifts are unpredictable, however as a student this can work in your favour all in all the job was hugely satisfying and I am glad that I was able to work here through my academic career.
