Pros

Nice facilities and a beautiful campus. The university offers good opportunity for other training. The other staff are generally friendly. Nice location in Canterbury.

Cons

Poor management and even poorer communication between departments. People are often stuck on minute details they forget about the person and circumstances involved. All about who you know not how you perform. Many times people seem incapable of doing anything that isn't directly within their job description nor do they point you in the right direction.

Advice to Management

Work on communicating between departments. Train your staff in customer service and in how to find out information even if outside of their job description.

    Pros

    great variety of jobs, great sense of community, great pay and progression routes. Staff are all professional, hard working, and good fun. it is a really nice place to work and Canterbury itself is beautiful.

    Cons

    you sometimes feel that the management have favourites that they pick to work events but they do give everyone a chance and are keen for new employees to get stuck in.

    Advice to Management

    less intimidating interview and selection process, i found it very stressful but well worth it!
