    I worked at Nottingham Trent University full-time

    Pros

    Wanting to further my experience I was given a lot of exposure to various areas of finance within the University, however I felt this (and benefiting from other opportunities such as volunteering) wasn't encouraged with certain team leaders. The staff are very friendly and always open to answering and helping you with any issues you may have.

    Flexible working hours.

    Great place to work if you're look for experience in finance.

    Cons

    Difficult to progress internally. Over the past 24 months, leaving colleagues haven't been replaced and their responsibilities have been shifted to a smaller workforce. Alongside the attitude of new management this has led to low morale and further staff leaving.

    During busy periods of the year, expect to cope with intense hours and work longer weeks. This is due to the University calendar and typical financial year responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Invest into growing your central finance department.

    I have been working at Nottingham Trent University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am able to work the hours that fit around my studies, everyone is really friendly and gets stuck in with anything that needs doing. Our management team are fab, and exteremly fair with all team members.

    Cons

    Some of the hours are unsociable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, I love this job and will be dissapointed to leave

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Nottingham Trent University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    City centre location. Good pension (although more less so now). Some discounts available e.g. travel pass . Flexible working hours outside term time for lecturers. Good catering facilities. Next to a tram stop.

    Cons

    I suspect that it very much depends which department you work for. Staff morale in my department is low as a recent staff survey showed. New lecturers find it very tough to manage their workload.
