Pros: good hours, flexibility.
Cons: travel time
My typical day included, checking the figures, and making sure they were up to date from the previous day. Other duties were checking email queries from other departments, checking external application enquiries and processing applications for students based on offers and rejections.
I learned how to organise my day better, about university life and culture, and the process of registration through UCAS.
The management offered a relaxed and flexible management style, I was able to manage my own workload, and they trusted me with my tasks.
The other people in the department made me feel part of the team, welcomed me as part of the team, and were very helpful in showing me what to do.
The hardest part of the job was knowing I was only there on a temporary basis, as I enjoyed working there, as part of a very well established team. The job made me feel as though I was doing something worthwhile.
