    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at King's College London part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An opportunity to improve communication skills; pay in accordance with London Living Wage; friendly staff; gives a chance to tell everyone about your experiences at KCL; occasional work for longer hours with more responsibilities

    Cons

    The work opportunities are not schedule-fixed; you will be given work on "first come-first serve" basis; there is little assistance with your NINO application, in case you need to apply for one

    Advice to Management

    It would help Ambassadors if you give them a faint idea about the amount of activities taking place in the coming month.

    I worked at King's College London part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, variety of cultures and backgrounds mean that I was learning new things constantly. The role involved a lot of in-person interactions with prospective students, giving tours of campus and answering questions online. Definitely given an opportunity to grow your soft skills.

    Cons

    Sometimes the online interactions with prospective students can be on several platforms, which makes communications slightly more difficult. The actual events tend to be in a non-uniform basis (sometimes you'll be doing tours, the next minute you could be sitting completing admin work), which can be good for some as it provides a rotation of jobs, but perhaps a little hectic at some points.

    I worked at King's College London part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Flexible work
    - Well-paid for the work
    - Great opportunities to learn and get involved with various activities at the University

    Cons

    - Work allocated is based (fairly) on how well they know you and if they know you're good and reliable which does mean that the more you work, the more work you'll get. Once hired start asking for work early on
