The money is good but the atmosphere in the Estates department is toxic. There are constant 're-structures' you are never sure if your job is on the line.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the culture and management style where work/life balance came first. The wholes department focus was on getting things done through working partnerships. I learned some good techniques on personal man-management opposed to micro managing. My manager was so supportive and promoted an outstanding workplace culture. At Kings they promote core value interviews where they make sure they hire the right fit for the department. I thoroughly enjoyed the togetherness and event the department held in order to promoted helping one another. Moving forward I picked up transferable skills like working with different systems, data cleansing and collaborative working.

A typical day's work involved a variety of tasks including diary management for two academics, arranging meetings, booking rooms/catering where appropriate, HR tasks such as contract renewals, completion of recruitment forms, staff health & safety inductions, monitoring office stationery/photocopier machines, processing expense claims, raising purchase orders, running reports for grants, completing research grants authorisation forms/applications.
Pros
Exposure to wide range of tasks, forever learning as systems changes, tendency to not work overtime.
Cons
Some tasks that are deadline oriented are allocated with little notice, open plan format can be disruptive making it difficult to focus.

Fair salary and good working condition. No need to complain for the work. Maybe not as exciting as you think, but fine work to receive minimum living wage in London.

As with most academic positions, it is difficult to rate institutions as a whole, as the experience will mostly be determined by your supervisor, but I found King's to be a relaxed working environment.

The work varies between departments and roles so there is no typical work day. My experience was very good as I was working from home with daily contact with the trial manager and other members of the team. As with other universities there is scope to change roles.

I worked at King's College London as a Graduate Teaching Assistant. This involved working closely with a course convenor, who would lead the main lecture series. I would then teach the students in smaller groups (tutorial groups or seminars of up to 15 students), to reinforce and practise what they had been taught in the lectures. I was given lots of freedom in terms of how I went about this, which was a great way to experiment with different teaching strategies and to develop as a teacher.
