I no longer work at the University, but the position was an innovative and fulfilling one, bringing a corporate approach to academic research. It was well supported by the university hierarchy, and offered a useful means for the faculty to engage with the wider community.

I enjoyed working at UJ, the staff in the marketing department are great people and the culture is fast-paced but relaxed. I would recommend working at UJ to anyone looking for an academic career.

Nepotism and favoritism is the bad habit at this institution otherwise they pay fairly well. There is no talent management and it uses mostly white people as managers even if they don’t qualify by virtue of their skin colour
Pros
Very ambitious institution
Cons
No

Wonderful place to work at. Choosing a better module to Tutor would be best, that way you will earn enough for a good lifestyle. The stuff is friendly but not the students.

Being a Chemistry tutor and practical demonstrator has taught me discipline and confidence. We were required to assist students in understanding concepts taught and being safe in laboratory environments.
We had to be ready to clearly explain concepts and be punctual when working.

This experience was really convenient. since

As a student assistant, it allowed me to interact with students from various backgrounds, and different economic conditions, ways of communicating. I also got exposure to academic exposure from a lecture and a student perspective. The difficult part was drawing the line between being emphatic towards a student who is late for the exam and being strict with the rules.

- Busy facilitating sessions on a typical workday
- Learned and developed managerial skills from running practical sessions on my own

- The challenging part of the job is concurrently running practicals single-handedly

- The latter is stressful but enjoyable when everything goes well
