Wonderful

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
One of my best jobs ever. I only left because I'd been working there for over 5 years and didn't want to become an actual Librarian at the time. I wanted to see what else I could be good at. I was young.

Pros

Wonderful colleagues.

Cons

None.

Working in Lameth college was the perfect job, environment, people and management. I enjoy working there; work was temporarily with an agency. It was good. In my opinion Lambeth Clollege Southside is on the par with Oxford Cambridge.

Pros

No free lunch but breakfast for the students.

Cons

My hours was full time Gillain & Eugenia were great.

Productive worker

I did not get paid at Lambeth as it was a school trip for work experience. I learnt how to pitch products to customers to increase the sale rate for the product. For example my assignment was to learn how to pitch a bike and i got the 2nd most amount of pitch out of everyone in my year.

Pros

Good workplace

It is a flexible workplace that can be easily balanced with family. The staff or colleagues are nice. However, there has been a restructuring every year, hence staff are taking more work and no increase in pay.

Focus on consistency

During my time at Lambeth College, I found that it was quite difficult to find answers to very common queries. Although this was down to the fact that there was a huge staff turnover at the time of me joining which would have been the main reason for this.

Learner focused

All the courses are accredited, year-long courses. Learners work towards passing Cambridge exams and progress to mainstream courses to further their studies.

Professional and highly inclusive

Lambeth College is a great place to work, during my time with the organisation I was able to meet new and exciting people, who were always willing to help. Their professionalism has also taught me the importance of been an effective communicator, I was able to develop and utilise my communications skills by liaising and passing on relevant information to various individuals within the organisation from top managers to staff at the operation level. I was also hugly involved with speaking with students and members of the public, this experience has truly widened my customer service skills and has helped me to give nothing but the best service at all times, ensuring that all students clients and customers are getting the best service possible.

Pros

free lunch

Cons

Temporary

Enjoyable and productive

As a pert-time Student Liaison Officer, it was my duty to cover three sites of the college, to assist Students with educational, social and welfare issues. It was a pleasure to be able to interact with the students, as I had not long left full-time education myself. It was generally a relaxed environment, but it was always satisfying in helping a student overcome a problem in the classroom...or in the common room.

Pros

Relaxed environment

Cons

Sometimes lacking in organisation and planning
