    A bit OTT on health and safety.They do everything by the book, or it is not done. A lot of stopping and starting, very slow to get things done. I would advise not to get frustrated, Just go with the flow..

    Current Employee - Senior Vacation Project Assistant in Sheffield, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Senior Vacation Project Assistant in Sheffield, England (UK)

    I have been working at University of Sheffield part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Working in an environment which is buzzing with energy helps to keep stress under control, working for the university is an ideal opportunity to learn practical skills alongside your academic degree. The university is also very flexible and allows a considerable amount of freedom in the way I work. Being employed by the university has also offered me an insight into how various departments of university work together. My work at university as a vacation project assistant has enhanced my communication skills, which I need in my day to day life as a journalism student and as an aspiring journalist.

    Cons

    As a project assistant, I rarely came in contact with my boss, and although I enjoyed the fun aspects of the job of assisting on events for mostly International students, I would have liked more feedback about what worked, what could be improved, etc. But really, my boss is lovely and she appreciates the way we lead the vacation projects, so this is not a very big problem.
