    Former Employee - Student Ambassador in Canterbury, England (UK)

    I worked at University of Kent part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I gained a great deal of experience working for the university while studying for my law degree. As an ambassador my work hours were flexible, well remunerated and altogether rewarding.

    Cons

    They do treat you like a kid and they expect you to fill in time sheets every week (and you can't do this whenever you want you have to approach their office which is often closed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow people to fill time-sheets in online. Don't treat students like children.

    I have been working at University of Kent

    Pros

    great variety of jobs, great sense of community, great pay and progression routes. Staff are all professional, hard working, and good fun. it is a really nice place to work and Canterbury itself is beautiful.

    Cons

    you sometimes feel that the management have favourites that they pick to work events but they do give everyone a chance and are keen for new employees to get stuck in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    less intimidating interview and selection process, i found it very stressful but well worth it!
