    I have been working at University of Leicester part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can choose your own hours and how much you work in some positions so the work-life balance is perfect. Also, the range of people you get to work with is great and you get to try different tasks all the time

    Cons

    There are a lot of things that you have to know about the University of Leicester in order to be good at the position, and this can take time to achieve.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more inter-work relationships by providing more training days etc together with other workers
