Good to get in experience

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It wasn't the most exciting place to work and there was a lot of expected overtime. However, paid the bills and a fairly comfortable job. Just not one for the long term

Great people to work alongside, everybody is very friendly

The pay is not enough to live on , always known to be a good paying company and now only pay minimum wage . People on long term sick or that are not productive in their roles means others have to pick up the slack , which leads to low staff morale . Heavy workload at times with not enough hours in the day . Summer tends to be the busiest time .

It was a good first part-time job experience. Good pay and flexible timings. Would encourage other student to take up part time work as a student helper/ambassador at the university.

Degrading environment to work in

Made to feel that I was not pulling my weight, weekly reviews highlighting what I was doing wrong and unmanageable workloads to complete. No support from management, eventually I left as the work environment was getting toxic and demoralising. I was only staff from BAME background in the office and often caught staff talking about/making fun of 'my' ethnic background when they thought I wasn't around. Very sad but very true.😞

PhD research

All about research at Loughborough University. The research was carried out by me under the supervision of line managers. The work place was good and friendly but challenging. I enjoy all part of my work/research at Loughborough.


No free lunch


Training to acquire a PhD

Inclusive and Encouraging atmosphere

Loveliest people from a multitude of backgrounds who are all so understanding no matter what your age or previous experience. Everyone is treated fairly and the pay is amazing!


free dinners with catering and free use of the swimming pool with lifeguarding


catering can be repetitive but is still enjoyable with interactions

Nice Place to Work

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.

Gained experience

• 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.
