Temporary Receptionist in Cambridge
on 2 December 2021
Love it here
Love working here, did take a couple weeks to get a computer log in but the people are lovely, the hourly rate is great and it’s a place where people stay. I work with a colleague that’s worked for Cambridge university for 20 years

High workload and repetitive
Working hours are OK, overtime is well compensated and arranged with good notice. Workload is very repetitive and not very engaging. Lots of micromanaging and little opportunity to progress and take on new responsibilities.

Employment Law is a Joke
I worked for UC previously on a fixed-term contract and had a positive experience. The atmosphere was professional, the responsibilities are varied and matched my qualifications and education at that time. However, when it was over I was unable to find a next role with any of the departments. They replied to me saying that have 'better people', 'more qualified'. After some time, I was offered a position with one of the departments as an assistant of someone whose qualifications are well below then mine and with no previous experience. The role was mundane and management idiotic. The manager would often call me on the last minute of the last working hour and start a discussion. No overtime rate was offered.
Office Manager in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

It's a typical academic workplace – average salary but good benefits, educated colleagues, generally relaxed workplace but moments of more stressful work.

Soul destroying
Awful culture. Thankless. People unfriendly and cold. Only work as Assistant staff if you have little or no self esteem or are a yes sayer. Only academics count.

Interview questions

How did you travel here today

Shared on 19 November 2017

It depends on how desperate they to fill the role. I experienced either forensically searching technical interviews or hurried and superficial Skype sessions, with nothing in between.. On a positive note, they do not ask questions like "if you were a biscuit, which would you be?" or any of that nonsense.
