Great employers for students
As a Student Ambassador, the hours are flexible around you and it's only when required. The only thing is that it's not a steady income so if you're looking for a reliable income I wouldn't recommend being a Student Ambassador. However, if it's just for a little bit of extra cash here and there, then I would say that's perfect!

not for those who wish to advance
ok but dont expect miracles, very limited advancement options, management use the department as their own personal police force and enjoy having the staff below them at loggerheads

Great work experience for students
Telethon calling provided a lot of really interesting information into options available after graduating from Strathclyde. Speaking to alumni helped greatly in discovering options and greatly helped improve my interpersonal skills

Stepping stone to other opportune academic positions.
I thought one second year module, assessed the performance of the cohort and submitted marks to the relevant Department. I was writing up my PhD thesis at the moment and needed financial support to meet the basic needs of my family. My student allowance has depleted and I had to take any role that can support basic subsistence needs to my family. I was very thankful to the University for availing the amount to help me through the PhD Process.

Challenging, Busy with a good dose of humour required
Working at Strathclyde can never be described by a typical day. No day is the same. As processes are complex it can be challenging to meet deadlines. However with the help of all colleagues (academic and administrative) we get the job done. The most enjoyable part is when you see the fruits of your labour ... the students succeeding!

rewarding if management cares to stay engaged!
a very busy and demanding workplace at times, although rewarding and you can leave at 5pm feeling accomplished. Management are full of empty promises for advancement, and have problems with favouritism. Difficult to rise through the payscales unless you have lots of friends in the right places. Holiday allowance is ok, not the best or worst. atmosphere can be either warm and friendly or cold and awkward depending on which department you work for.
Pros
rewarding, ok holliday
Cons
favouritism, stressful at times, bad atmosphere, lack of advancement

Enjoyable place to work
Days are nice and busy with work being offered help with. Learnt finer points of using instruments I had already used. The management was good, always there to provide support. The culture was good overall as the pHds who supported me were a great help. The hardest part was learning things different about the work. The most enjoyable part was using the equipment and seeing the results.

Fun and save workplace
Normally first thing would be to get organised at my desk. I learned more about coding and data analysing. I was able to freely manage my time for lunch wisely to keep production up to standards. The other employees were all very welcoming and always gave me advice when finding myself in a loop with the coding. The hardest part about the job was honestly just traveling it was about an hours travel early in the morning. However, the most enjoyable part about the job was the open and relaxing working culture.
Pros
Comforting wokring areas
Cons
Long hours

It was good, until management changed
I started an apprenticeship with the university, it was down as a 2 year apprenticeship. I didn’t get my apprenticeship papers until a couple of years later. The apprenticeship procedure was terrible and I was forgotten about for a few years. I went on to being a full time member of staff and they didn’t know. There was little communication from them.

The staff members were welcoming and very friendly, the work load was good. Then management changed. Everyone became stressed and it wasn’t dealt with very well. The manager themselves didn’t treat staff very well either. Sometimes aggressive, other times very passive.


I felt that my time in the university was up and the place was becoming a burden on my mental health. I enjoyed my years there, but by the end I was happy to get out.
Pros
Great working environment, good hours, good work load
Cons
Bad management change, terrible understanding of stress
