    I have been working at LSE part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The work is never boring and very flexible.

    Sometimes much work is not available. Not that much career development but expected from a casual role like this.

    Expand widening participation operations as they are beneficial and provide employment. Also, some more career options would be nice.
