Working here allowed me to be flexible and work around my timetable. An average work day allowed me to interact with a large number of people, offering help and guidance.

Temporary Job only but was given plenty of Database Administration work to bring the University Database 'InPlace' up to date as there had been a transition from another database.

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.

Everyone in the lab is lovely and willing to help if any help is needed. Working hours vary depending on how much is needed to be done within the day or week. Flexi hours are available if you are a permeate staff.

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.....

Guided parents and students to where they have to registered to start the new academic year. Helped them move in at their allocated dorms. Job was only for 2 days (8 hours work a day) and it was fun as you could relax with your mates and make new friends

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.
Pros
Many events to attend
Cons
None
