    Current Employee - Senior Administrator in Brighton, England (UK)

    I have been working at University of Brighton full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very good job security, very very good holiday scheme the best in the area for education. Strong HR, I feel protected as an employee.

    Cons

    Not enough training for professional services staff, academics are not the only people that matter in education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in more resources pro-actively. Not having enough staff in a very busy area will affect how well we perform.

    I have been working at University of Brighton part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The team. Working at Brighton University as a student ambassador you have the feel everyone is working together. The feel is collaborative not competitive. Everyone is hands on and working together.

    Cons

    Pay was almost always delayed, in some cases working an open day to not get paid for another two months. As a student these pays are heaven sent, but usually far too late! The pay system for student ambassadors needs reviewing and tightening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer supervisor roles to student ambassadors that put in the extra effort, make sure it doesn't go unnoticed and show appreciation of those willing to put in the additional work.
