Working at Strathclyde is very enjoyable as the pace of work is fast, people that I came across tended to be open-minded, hard-working, and productive. Working here is challenging as the pace of work at certain times of the year can be almost too fast but I always feel challenged and motivated to do well. Staff are friendly and supportive and the university has fantastic courses available for staff. Would recommend working here highly.
Many jobs available depending on the time of year and what is available, but the staff are all lovely and there is easy accessibility to tea and coffee. Some jobs can be quick paced or long hours of standing to guide people but definitely worth the pay.
Free tea/coffee, friendly colleagues
Can spend a long time standing depending on the job
If you have an inquestive mind and love to solve problems, academia is for you. However, you have to accept that funding is key and be prepared to chase money and adapt your research skills and knowledge to accommodate for the availability of funding in order to stay in employment...It can be stressful!!!
short term contracts
As a Student Ambassador, the hours are flexible around you and it's only when required. The only thing is that it's not a steady income so if you're looking for a reliable income I wouldn't recommend being a Student Ambassador. However, if it's just for a little bit of extra cash here and there, then I would say that's perfect!
I thought one second year module, assessed the performance of the cohort and submitted marks to the relevant Department. I was writing up my PhD thesis at the moment and needed financial support to meet the basic needs of my family. My student allowance has depleted and I had to take any role that can support basic subsistence needs to my family. I was very thankful to the University for availing the amount to help me through the PhD Process.
The course "Civil & Environmental Engineering" was very interesting and increased my desire to learn about the essential structural component to infastruture. This was done through the well qualified lecturers who were well versed in the subjects and were able to deliver these lectuers a fun and productive way
Working at Strathclyde can never be described by a typical day. No day is the same. As processes are complex it can be challenging to meet deadlines. However with the help of all colleagues (academic and administrative) we get the job done. The most enjoyable part is when you see the fruits of your labour ... the students succeeding!
a very busy and demanding workplace at times, although rewarding and you can leave at 5pm feeling accomplished. Management are full of empty promises for advancement, and have problems with favouritism. Difficult to rise through the payscales unless you have lots of friends in the right places. Holiday allowance is ok, not the best or worst. atmosphere can be either warm and friendly or cold and awkward depending on which department you work for.
rewarding, ok holliday
favouritism, stressful at times, bad atmosphere, lack of advancement

Days are nice and busy with work being offered help with. Learnt finer points of using instruments I had already used. The management was good, always there to provide support. The culture was good overall as the pHds who supported me were a great help. The hardest part was learning things different about the work. The most enjoyable part was using the equipment and seeing the results.
A good friendly environment to work in and a good opportunity for those looking for some voluntary work in the analytical sciences field.I enjoyed working here voluntarily but if paid would have continued within the company seeking promotion.
Normally first thing would be to get organised at my desk. I learned more about coding and data analysing. I was able to freely manage my time for lunch wisely to keep production up to standards. The other employees were all very welcoming and always gave me advice when finding myself in a loop with the coding. The hardest part about the job was honestly just traveling it was about an hours travel early in the morning. However, the most enjoyable part about the job was the open and relaxing working culture.
