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
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.😞
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
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.
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.
Great people, inspiring atmosphere
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.
Good group of people
Staff numbers have reduced
