Flexible, supportive and considerate
Student Ambassador (Current Employee) – Exeter – 12 September 2018
Working as student ambassador involves a range of tasks from tour guiding to supervising children on residential visits to the university.
The working hours are extremely flexible which allows employees to have a good work-life balance. The management is supportive of its employees and always seeks to make the job easier by providing free transport, food, accommodation, and subsidies whenever necessary. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing you are making an impact. The hardest part is the amount of walking involved while tour guiding. The working culture is very much embedding in the student culture. Ambassadors find unity in the fact that they are all students. This job has taught me when dealing with people (especially strangers) a smile and the projection of positive energy will go a long way.
Good pay and good environment
Long hours (depending on the job) and lots of walking
