Pre-sessional English Teacher in Exeter
Professional, positive and supportive work environment
All duties and responsibilities were preplanned with a support structure on hand to answer or assist in all work-related activities and tasks. Effective coaching and training were available throughout the contract period, and management encouraged teachers to collaborate, discuss and assist each other where necessary. The office culture was one of open and fair, with ample opportunity to offer an opinion or a solution or indeed to question.
Run like a business, not an academic institution
Not treating employees very well. All management and benefits. Extremely stressful and lack of resources in many departments. Admin staff continuously rotating positions and academic staff strongly stressed.

What I learned
I learnt how to work well in a team and especially about getting to know and work with new people. It was a great way to learn key skills which I can take to other aspects of life.
Catering service and Cleaner in Exeter
It is hard work but interesting. I learned what it's like to serve students from different countries with different cultures and customs. I learned that people can have allergies to some foods. Some are intolerant to glucose or gluten. I learned how to combine food and how to store it. The work team is friendly and ready to help. At the end of work we have lunch or dinner with colleagues and share our impressions.
