Perfect Student Job

- Usually casual and term-time hours only, but depending on availability you can take on as many shifts as you want although they try to match your area of expertise with the client's. - Perfect as a job to have alongside your university studies, and is very well paid per hour as it is deemed a specialist role. - Following brief training, you mostly work autonomously taking notes in lectures and often you sit away from the student, unless they have specific needs. Opportunities to take on other roles including sighted guide, typing up and library support, involving further training which is free. - One of the best aspects is that you get to learn about different degree topics. - Most of the note-taking is easy as long as you are prepared to concentrate throughout the lecture, as some assignments are several hours long! There are the odd difficult times when note taking in technical subjects, but again, they try to match you to the subject. If you feel that you are unable to provide adequate support then the assignment can be re-allocated given sufficient warning. - If a lecture gets cancelled within 24 hours you still get paid, but often you don't find out until you're already in the lecture room.

Pros

Still paid when assignments cancelled within 24hrs, excellent hourly rate

Cons

No computer access, term-time only

Very versatile work

I sit in lectures of students and write compact, effective notes for them. It is great because they schedule your support in between your lectures, so you are still able to balance your own studies as well as work. The pay is great, and the team are always really friendly, helpful and understanding !

Excellent place to work

I really enjoyed my time supporting students. It was very laid back good partime work. Only problem is the position is no consistent. Relied on students being in class

Its Nice

Staff are nice, the work pay per hour is okay, but work is what you would expect with zero hours, some periods are good and some are quiet as can be. Position is casual so unless this suits your lifestyle/circumstances I wouldn't recommend for long term as nothing is guaranteed with getting work as well as keeping it. Reason being even if you secured a position in the week with the company, the student is the one who can cancel and given they do this within 24hours you do not get paid. Also note that you are responsible for your own travel expenses to and from venues and work can vary from 2 - 5 hours either one off or couple of days a week.

Pros

pay per hour is decent, good for work life balance, staff are friendly

Cons

not a lot of hours and even then hours not guaranteed to go ahead as dependent on student.
