Don't take a fixed term contract here and watch out for the USS pension which is worthless unless you do more than 2 years. Treated as a cheap contract resource not as a staff member. No training, no performance reviews, no progression and none of the other 'employee' benefits.
Je n'ai pas grand chose à dire, mon expérience à été superbe. J'y ai rencontré des gens super et compréhensible et patients.Je suis arrivé et je ne parlais pas un mot d'anglais et maintenant mon Anglais et meilleurs que mon Français et c'est en partie grâce aux gens avec qui j'ai travaillée.J'ai vécu une bonne expérience et je le souhaite et conseils à d'autres.
On finissait de bonheurs l'après midi
Je n'en n'ai pas
The University is the worst place so far I have worked in, the managers are straight bad who doesn't care about you, if they will assingn enough hours for everyone to make a living if there's no enough bussiness and allways having favourites no matter how messed up they are. They never use natural products all comes in bags and the food quality is awfull. Just avoid
good salary if you get the hours
All is not payment

Jobs at University of Edinburgh
Augment bionics: Working alongside the Electrical and mechanical engineering team, as a product designer, my job was to help with CAD Design and renderings, silicone moulds in the iterations of the prosthetic arm to allow for more aesthetically pleasing exterior and using as little material as possible for sustainability. This work allows me to learn more about collaborative work, in a fast-paced environment given that at the time, we were on a tight deadline, chasing to finish the parts for specified time. Photo editor and photographer: This was a job I took for leisure purposes as I also enjoy taking and editing photos in portrait mode, and assign others for their respective causes.
There is a prevalent culture of independent work ethic, i.e. you are aware of the expectations and you are mostly left to fulfil those without people looking over your shoulder. Management is always mindful of one's personal circumstances and they are always accommodating.
I enjoy working at the university people are friendly we all work very hard at keeping the buildings clean we all take pride in our work and getting recognition from lecturers and students alike saying how helpful we are and how clean their office and building s are really gives the cleaning staff a boost.
Excellent Demonstrating Opportunuties for Postgraduate Students. As a PhD student in the school of Chemistry at Edinburgh University the opportunity to get payed experience teaching undergraduates is invaluable.
