Confusing and unsupported security policy

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Wrote 2800 parking tickets in 3 months, not a single fine was collected. Uncoordinated policy that was followed by security but not enforced by Estates Management or Policy signees. Pointless job with students having no regard for security personnel or the enforcement of site policy. Really glad that it was temporary.

Bit of a chore

An ok place, yet needs to be more organised and forward thinking. Slow in moving forward. Nice people, and friendly. Can be stressful in the classroom.

Awful place

Too negative and toxic. Everyone is in your business and they are judgemental. The salary for an NQT is the best part about it. I have worked at better colleges.

Productive and Fun Workplace

Working here has been a fantastic experience. I'm training to be a teacher and the help that I've had from my mentor and other teachers in the team has been invaluable. All of the teachers in my office really care about helping their learners progress while also doing all that they can to support them with non-educational needs. Further to this they have superb specialist subject knowledge and the ability to deliver this in a proficient and enjoyable manner.

Pros

Supportive environment

Cons

None

Well run institution

The college obviously benefits from having spent its financial resources well. It is large but sensibly divided so that departments can function effectively and with a degree of autonomy. The college has clear expectations of its purpose and this is reflected in the attitude and behaviour of its learners.

Pros

The students

Cons

Some contracts are sessional only

Unsure what the future of the college will be

They could not commit to any future plans or commitments due to possible merge & I had spent 3 years qualifying for a management degree. I needed the college to offer me progression opportunity to use what I had studied for.

Pros

Gym

Cons

Pay to park & not guaranteed a space

Long distance course

I did these 4 courses at home whilst undertaking a full time job. My mentor regularly visited to check how I was getting on and if I needed help. Would recommend.

Unstable managment structure,Limited Opotunaty to Feedback Usefull Infomation.

During my employment in the estates department at Loughborough College I have experienced job satisfaction in providing what I feel is a important service to those using the college along with a team of friendly and enthusiastic peers. However in the time that I been in employment at the college the manager of the estates team has changed six times. as a result of this I don't always feel that the employees are as supported and valued as they should be.

Pros

Friendly team of peers with a strong work ethic.

Cons

Unstable managment structure within the estates department.

Educational

As it was a college course I benefitted a lot from it. I got a certificate in food safety. I would only get to go on Mondays and some weeks we'd do theory and others we did practical.

RNIB The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

The students make the job worthwhile. Clicky staff, management are not consistent with their decisions. I'd give it a swerve unless you are in the in crowd! Good luck!

Pros

Bell Bar

Cons

Forward planning is called fire fighting!
