Featured Review

Former Employee - Design Assistant

I worked at University of Birmingham part-time for more than a year

Pros

- As a student at the University of Birmingham, it is very easy to get a part-time job across campus with excellent pay. - Wonderful culture with people who really care about you. - Flexible: could... come in a bit early to finish a bit early!

Cons

- Students are only allowed to work 15 hours per week - of course this is to ensure your studies are a priority, but my schedule changed from one week to the next meaning at times I was perfectly... capable of doing more than 15 hours per week, yet this was not allowed.

Current Employee - Student Demonstrator

I have been working at Birmingham City University part-time for less than a year

Pros

For the most part friendly staff, clean & pleasant work environment, good pay for student jobs, good sick-day (etc) agreements.

Cons

Some staff are hard to work with, uncooperative students can be frustrating, on-site food facilities can be expensive.

Advice to Management

Some lecturers could be better trained or more willing to actively engage with students.
