Nice job

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I have really enjoyed being a student ambassador at Arts University Bournemouth. You sometimes have to be super quick with emails to get decent job roles but overall its been a great experience, especially when I got to assist on the 2019 Illustration summer school. Another notable experience was being an ambassador at the ExCel centre for a Universitys event!

Pros

Fun jobs. Lots of variety. Good pay for the role.

Cons

Fighting for jobs occasionally.

Fun workplace

I was a representative of the university liaising with prospective students and their parents. As well as representing my course, I was also apart of tour guiding around the site and communicating the benefits of studying at the Arts University Bournemouth. You're never on your own, always with a partner throughout the day so the time doesn't move slowly during a rainy day.

Unique and rewarding place to work

Great place to work with a great team of staff throughout the whole university, all working towards a common goal. Has the best interests of those attending at its core and sets its self aside from other workplaces.

Productive, Creative & Fun Workplace

Small but cozy campus with relatively new facilities, from film studios to post production suites. Campus is in fast expansion and upgrades are being made regularly and throughout. Creativly stimulating environment, professional and friendly co-workers.

An interesting arts environment

During my time as an Administrator at the Arts University Bournemouth I have enjoyed working with great teams and been given frequent opportunities for career development. One of the most challenging aspects of the job is juggling the myriad of demands I receive from the academics who require all need all kinds of administrative help and it can be pretty pressurised at times but this has greatly helped to hone my skills as a professional administrator and there is lots of training available to help develop ones professional skills. Being an arts university, there is always something interesting and creative going on and there are lots of opportunities to see the work that students are creating from a very broad spectrum of creativity. I've got to work with both students and staff from all different areas across the campus which has been great. The most enjoyable part of the job is working in a supportive team toward a worthwhile goal.

Pros

Training, supportive colleagues, interesting "arty" environment, strick adherence to allocated working hours so no "long hours".

Cons

Can be exhausting - not enough hours in the day!

Good

I found this experience to be very fulfilling and a great insight as to what it would be like to work in the costume industry. I also found the people who I worked with were very professional and helpful when it came to being thrown in the working environment.

I pay attention to the smallest details because everything I do has to be perfect. working as a customer assistant before in Marks & Spencer I have gained lots of experience specially communication skills with different customers trying to be positive and energetic with smile all the time and trying to make the customer happy.
