Very cooperative people and management. They value your efforts. There is strong sense of teamwork. Colleagues are very encouraging and supportive. Communication and support helps you to develop further.
Realistic approach to get things done.
I had to travel from Birmingham
I really enjoyed doing my BA course here. I made friends for life and I found the relationship between professors and students to be an excellent balance between professional and casual. Not to mention they truly were experts in their fields. Very well recruited team for my course indeed (Creative Writing)
If your face does not fit and you have an ounce of intelligence then the middle management and people you work with frown on initiative. Managers are quick to adopt any good ideas you have and put forward as their own . A set of older staff who have built a culture to suite their working practices and lock out new staff who evoke honesty and integrity .Staff the hardest to work with as most of them have no interest in providing a quality service to the students.
My experience of working/interviewing at Edge Hill is that you have to have just graduated (the younger the better it seems), or you already work there.... They have also now made the interview process so difficult and lengthy that only god knows what it is they're looking for. Certainly not experience and qualifications: someone to go to the pub after work with i'm guessing.....
Typical day involved interacting with students about placements they need to complete in order to pass their degree. This could be via email, phone or face-to-face communication. Updating of databases; processing and tracking invoices; Arranging meetings and audits; locating and sourcing new placement opportunities, were all day-to-day tasks. The workplace culture was very good with most people being very friendly and welcoming. A lot of fun is had but a lot of work and hard work is done also. Hardest part of the job was working with slow systems that could be frustrating. With the most enjoyable part of the job being the people you worked with everyday.
Many events to attend
Working as a student guide, I had many opportunities to choose my own working hours and I could work as little or as much as I wanted to. It was great pay and there was a variety of jobs I could choose from, as well as paid training.
Not guaranteed work
Great Campus and just lovely people. I loved working there. The amenities are excellent, the grounds are stunning with a great social vibe as well as great academia. The worst thing Over did was leave.
Great surroundings and great culture
