Shocking people to work for.
Very very poor management. Really don't care about employees. Definitely a if you don't like it walk we'll just get somebody else culture. Wall to wall incompetence and those in charge taking non of the blame. Ineffective complaints/whistleblowing policy. Load of error in payments.
Temporary Administrator in Manchester, Greater Manchester
on 14 December 2022
Friendly staff and engaging work
The work is not too hard and pretty straightforward, but everyone is really friendly and willing to help out when you have any questions. Management are easy to approach as well if you need extra support. Pay is really reasonable and overtime is paid fairly.

Very nice place to work
It’s very diverse which is a good look. Colleagues were always helpful and nice to be around. During peak periods i.e. during summer exams, it’s going into the office and working next to everyone that makes it a lot easier.

Management are the worst. Most people don’t work, particularly those who have been there a while, so you’re doing all of their work. Bad pay. Will make promises and then go back on them. Management look to tell you off rather than consider what they’ve done wrong (e.g. 0 training).
