Fun for active learners

I had a great time! I did my work experience with the university, they were so welcoming! Genuinely a memorable experience, I would press young people to ring in early for work experience roles.

A depressing place to work.

Goldsmiths used to be an employer you could be proud to work for but they have decided to sell their soul to the banks and are trying to remove long standing staff to re-employ new staff to do the same job on lower wages. So many staff worked so hard through the pandemic to get told their jobs have now been deleted and that they will need to apply for the newly created jobs, which are basically the same but for less money and more work. I suppose if you are going to be a new employee you won't mind working longer hours for the wages offered but I need to tell you, you'll be overworked and underpaid.

A workplace to grow

I was lucky enough to finish university and swing straight into a part-time job where I was doing what I loved and ultimately what I wanted to do at the time. I was able to learn from my superiors whilst teaching the students from my own experiences.

A unique place to work. An academic centre of creative expression.

Goldsmiths University prides itself on fuelling a creative community, which also promotes academic excellence. New ideas and thinking for oneself is encouraged, and research projects span across the arts, cultural studies, and social sciences. Goldsmiths host some amazing lecturers and students who go on to do great things. An interdisciplinary approach has helped students to cross academic boundaries, in order to enhance their comparative understanding of humanities.

Academically, Goldsmiths is of a very high standard, particularly in the areas of media, politics, and sociology. The Philosophy Centre offers advanced seminars to the public, and the main building hosts a cinema and bar open to the public. Goldsmiths have celebrated "diversity and inclusion" for many years, but this achievement has been undermined in recent years, due to some very bad press concerning discrimination. The senior management are incredibly slow to respond to such issues. Indeed, there appears to be a massive disconnect between senior management and the academic staff. However, there is a real opportunity to reconnect with their "original values" when they were Goldsmiths College, before the commercialisation of UK Higher Education.
