I had worked for the University twice and overall i enjoyed my time working there the environment was professional and they did take care of their employees. however on both occasions they did not give me a notice period and they had just left me high and dry with saying they will not require my services anymore.

Working in the University of Huddersfield Library was one of the high points of my university experience. The perfect workplace for a student, so convenient and adds another level to your university social life.

Advertise lots of "opportunities" for training but you never get any time to do any.

Management changed several times and the job role changed every few months.


They expected 1/3 of the team to do the same amount of work after lots of people left.


Some things were fun, and the students were OK.
Pros
Varied work - from data input to helping out at Open Days.
Cons
Lots of office politics and casual bullying

A great atmosphere, especially if you like the challenge of being around and working with lots of different people. Something new to learn every day. Never boring or regimental.

A fun place to work that allowed for you to fit your study time around your hours. A good way of earning whilst studying. A variety of roles available, from leading tours and talking to potential students on open days to talking to visiting schools about the every day lives of university students to give them a flavour of university.

I was the only one working in this particular role at the university, and much of my work was at other institutions/organisation, therefore I cannot comment on others' experiences with the university

Staff are happy, upbeat and motivated - a positive environment.
Open to new ideas and have high ambitions for their students, and supportive of their careers after graduation.

Had a great experience while there. I learned a lot and built up my network. They give you real business jobs and you learn a lot through them. Definitely recommend.

As a lecturer in the classroom you are expected to teach students to think critically and encourage learners to form their own opinions. As a staff member your critical thinking will get you in big trouble as any form of thinking is not welcome. Massive staff turnover, you only have to look at vacancies - they never end. Worst workplace I have ever worked in...

Very good pay for students and the staff are very understanding that we are all students so take into consideration our uni work meaning there is a cap on the amount of hours you can do as a student ambassador, your learning is put first.
Pros
good pay
Cons
irregular jobs

I do carry out daily, weekly , monthly and yearly report on work done at various times in the year these involves the use of Microsoft office packages like the Microsoft word, excel, power point in preparing annual report on the facilities which also involves the planned and unplanned work done, budget spent during the period and proposed budget for the facilities and this allowed for proper engagement with the client at all times on what has been achieved and what is expected to me done. This also reduces the bottlenecks for progress and improved sustainable good practice at all levels. This was achieved by effective and efficient communication between the client and myself.
