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.
Involving people culture
short term contract
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.
Free lunches or dinners.
I do not have a contract with fixed hours per week.
This job provides great flexibility, allowing you to choose work to fit around your studies. Working at a variety of different event, such as open days, campus tour or delivering session in schools across the South-West of England means you are always using and learning different skills.
While working for University of Exeter, I only received the training. I applied for many other jobs but was only given one shift. They hire too many people for their work and therefore I would advise going for a different job if you require regular income.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at University of Exeter?
I work as PTA at the Uni of Exeter and it is a fantastic job and would recommend anyone doing a postgrad here to do the same. The rate of pay is very good and the work environment and culture is second to none. The E-Claims and expenses system is easy to use and other members of staff (academic, technical and administrative) and students are friendly.
Wide variety of jobs that fit very well around a busy timetable or voluntary commitments, with very good pay for a job of this type. The nature of the allocation of jobs through a central calendar allows you to cut down on work at busy times, or take on more when you can.
It was fun working with students from different cultural backgrounds. Learning about and trying to solve problems students were facing at University helped develop my communication and problem-solving skills. I really enjoyed sharing my experiences with students and how I solved the problems I faced. I was able to learn a lot about people from different countries and their approaches to dealing with unfortunate situations.
