Student Host in Belfast

Okay as a student job
Worked here for a year as a student host. Wasn’t a bad experience, very flexible around your work life. Will say that they’re almost too flexible as there was times we were severely understaffed.

Stressful Environment
No career progress and work environment based on bias unfortunately thus no matter what you have done, you are not going to see any progress in your career

Depends on the department
Think of each part of the uni as completely separate businesses. Each has its own culture, expectations and rules that vary wildly from one another. Directorates aren’t typically good places to work- stricter dress codes, less flexibility with hours, much restricted holidays (eg no annual leave to be taken over summer months), often open offices where any chat is squished so less “friendly” overall as there’s more separation between teams, and flexible working might be only a day a week, but potentially more promotion possibilities and typically permanent posts. In several years in a directorate was never offered the fun lunches and events that were common place in Schools. Schools on the other hand tend to be friendly, good community spirit, relaxed, more or very informal dress, private offices, very flexible on work times and home working (3 days home working typical), cyclical work throughout the year so only spots of time eg. September where leave is restricted. However promotions are often not possible unless someone retires/leaves and many posts in centres/projects/schools are temporary. Depending on the school they regularly arrange lunches and fun events to help bond staff. Interviews vary wildly from place to place. Unless you are going for testing and a clerical board, there is no consistency in the types of questions they ask from one post to another.

For your own sake - avoid
Chronically underpaying and stripping staff of benefits each year to the point of mental break, warning you as strongly as possible to avoid this terrible employer

Miserable place to work
Unfriendly place to work not made welcome.Work load not divid out equally because of favouritism.Having to cover sick leave plus your own work at busy times of year is physically demanding and therefore adds to sick leave rising.
