Job Review
Sustainability Projects Assistant at the University of Sheffield at Change Agents UK
at Change Agents UK

What are the best and worst things about your job? Best:
Working on something I'm passionate, working in a university environment, getting lots of opportunities for professional and personal development as well as lots of training.
Worst:
Working not as part of a team in an environment with older colleagues in a new city, being thrown in the deep end and too many expectations for someone new to the role.
What is the annual salary for this role? Starting salary: £15,000 - £17,000
Current salary: £15,000 - £17,000
What hours do you actually work, on average?
09:00 - 17:00
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role? Application Advice: Don't settle for anything you're not passionate about. I did a lot of volunteering before this job because I was passionate about sustainability and my circle back then was trying to discourage me from "wasting time" on non-profitable activities, but it was all this voluntary experience that distinguished me from other candidates and gave me the job.
Interview Advice: Be fun and enthusiastic. Try to demonstrate a broad range of experiences rather than talking about the same role all the time. Practice possible questions. Make sure you do your research about the organisation and throw in a couple of facts about them to impress them. Use the STAR technique but also following it with what you learned and how you link it to the role.
