    I worked at University of Nottingham (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was rewarding work to offer interns, graduates and post graduates a good selection of voluntary posts and paid employment vacancies within the third sector outlets, offices and laboratories.

    Cons

    The students turn out was good yet they didn't seem to be interested at the range that was on offer yet, however on the positive side we still managed to get over 300 students to sign up for volunteering/paid vacancies.

    Advice to Management

    None to be given.

    Pros

    Working here was an amazing experience. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. I also gained a lot of experience from there.

    Cons

    At times we were not given enough direction, and funding is tight for various roles.

    Advice to Management

    Facilitate easy access to reviews, e.g. able to work in a team and with a high level of personal responsibility.

    I worked at University of Nottingham full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice environment, campus and people. Workload was not too hard, perhaps even a little light. The pay was good especially for Nottingham.

    Cons

    Career progression moves at a glacial pace. Communication and interaction between departments is lacklustre at best

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on new starters and define a clear career progression and goals to achieve in order to move forward. More training opportunities to learn beneficial skills would also be well recieved.

    I worked at University of Nottingham part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoyed the working environment, interesting lectures and seminars and some really inspirational teachers. I also worked with some inspiring students.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, although this was dependant on the students and what they required so in a sense could not be helped.

    Advice to Management

    It may be wise to attempt to try and source some more funding from somewhere in order to expand the support available, although you may disagree.
