Very organised environment, what you see is what you get which I like. I find that people are more open minded and willing to help. It was great to get the opportunity to study and they also have a few short courses offered within the institution you can do. UCT is more organised than other institutions, if you a process driven person then this is definitely the way to go! I only left to study and I would go back anytime again!
To study for free
university of Cape Town is an excellent learning opportunity as you are molded by fire. Many difficult staff that require you to be patient and utilize good interpersonal skills to get your job done. No monetary benefits as that is the nature of work I applied for, but there are other benefits such as first preference for choosing a residence room.
Working with difficult people
It's a good environment to work in, so politics come into play from time to time, i guess it's the nature of the environment.
The have very good study assistance and you can grow internally. Job succession is lacking and bonus system really need to be reviewed, as it's currently more favorable to the academic staff.
Fun to work with high intellectuals with lots of opportunities for international candidates in the field of sociolinguistic. I highly recommend this University for any post graduate degree and research.
Short distance travelling
Fear of being mugged
when i started working at Uct it was exciting, i liked the environment, career wise i didn't grow, I was in the same level for +-7 years, opportunities to study were very slim, Junior degree part time at UCT then was not available for employees working full time.
free jazz concert to relax employees' minds
- Supportive staff and an interesting group of students.- Hourly rate is great but not paid according to hours *actually* worked (e.g., was compensated for one hour of marking when we usually spent far more time on this).
Work life balance, flexibility and great management. The work was challenging but had great support. I was never micro managed because management believed in my capabilities. I would go back if the was an opportunity.
Growth opportunities if you want to grow are endless. They even paid for my studies
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

This is a very interesting job. Every day is a learning experience. The students make up the best part of the day as they are the main focus of the job. Everything revolves around them and their well-being. Management are an amazing team of individuals! Strong, humble and always willing to teach and share knowledge and wisdom regarding the job and Residence. I absolutely love working here!
I was working in a research project and we completed the project. I enjoyed working for UCT but it was a contract so there was no job security. when we always knew that at some stage we will have to start looking for permanent employment.
there are periods days when it feels like there are not sufficient hours in the day but also days that are fairly relaxed
Each day has new challenges or things to learn even if you have a defined job description as you deal with all sorts of personalities, cultures, ages and temperaments. I can not complain about the salary at all. Management was fair and very accommodating in times of challenges or difficulties. The hardest part of the job was leaving at the end of my contract. The most enjoyable part of the job was the feeling and energy of the surroundings filled with learning and teaching and people growing and actually seeing their progress through their years.
I enjoyed the HS Course as it refreshed my outlook on HS and I learned several new techniques to achieve my HSE goals and broaden my perspective. I enjoy doing courses from different institutions to keep up to date with developements
