    I have been working at Aston University part-time

    Pros

    Small and intimate university with lots of international students. Staff are friendly and helpful in most cases. A lot of interesting and knowledgeable academics to work with.

    Cons

    Opportunities are very limited due to "lack of funds". Secondment opportunities are non-existent. Relationship between academic and support staff are very strained in some departments. Support staff feel very undervalued and unappreciated. Departments struggle due to lack of staff, again due to lack of funds in the budget apparently.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your staff and develop them more. Keep an accurate inventory of the talent pool you have and invest in it. Work on integrating the academic and support staff more so the relationship is improved and everyone works more cohesively.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Aston University (Birmingham, England (UK)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Had a telephone interview about my experience and was then invited to a face to face interview asked about my experiences in more detail and how I felt my skills were relevent to the role. I also had to do a proof reading test to ensure that I could spot mistakes when reading copy.
