I enjoyed my time working with Loughborough University. It has a good work culture as whole management seems to be taking the establishment in the right direction. Once you get used to the area, the job becomes very enjoyable.

My daily routine at Loughborough University as a hospitality assistant is very hard work. I have my own floor of 8 showers 8 toilets 5 kitchen amd 42 bedrooms clean during a weekly basis. I love to keep my area to a high standard of cleaning as customers are the students and pay alot of money to cone and study to be a great team member and to make the students feel happy. happyamend happy ansns

• Have been awarded Ambassador of the week in August 2018. • I helped pupils with their activities on science activity day, engineering experience day • I was in the media team of School Games 2018. • During Applicant Days for students, I conduct tours of the campus, meeting and greeting students and their guests and generally answer any questions they have regarding the University, student life and opportunities students have once they arrive. All theses helped me develop communication skills and confidence.

This is university not a job so most of the time you are attending lectures and sitting exams which is a good way to connect with peers and build relationships

Being a student ambassador is really nice part time job to balance with your respective course. Colleagues are other students within your departments; and therefore, is very relaxed.

Loughborough University is in itself one of the most dynamic and inspiring places in the East Midlands. Global leader of sports studies and rising up the University charts it ticks all the boxes from a student perspective. Working here on the other hand is not quite as inspiring. In order to progress you very much have to be in the right 'clique', and motivation for staff is minimal, often expected to add more and more to the working day with no return or reward (or even thanks). Don't let this review put you off, it has it's moments of being a great place to work, it's just a shame that sometimes the level of intelligence from the middle-management team leaves a lot to be desired.... Pays well for what is expected of you.
Pros
Great people, inspiring atmosphere
Cons
Poor leadership

The University is well known with many academic schools all on one site. Many changes have taken place including job security. If you work hard and have the time to give the company 110%, then this is for foryou.
Pros
Good group of people
Cons
Staff numbers have reduced
