A great place to learn, the place is relaxed but takes to much work on. The opportunity to support young people along the journey is a true motivation every day. However the place gets in it's own way and needs to focus on actually delivering.
My time at UCAS proved to be a highly useful period which required me to learn a great deal of detail about the system of UCAS. The environment was welcoming and the senior staff were highly supportive if there was any problems. Generally they are a good institution to their employers.

Jobs at UCAS
I have been at UCAS since April last year, this is with the same company as Endsleigh ( Charlton house catering) of which I have been with for the past 10.5 years. I am now ready to progress into a catering managers role.
Nice new refurbished resturant
UCAS is fast becoming a fully fledged consultancy practice - it started employing ex-consultant type staff and combining this bringing in other external consultancy specialists, resulting in a very professional and slick working, change environment. There were/are issues with redundancy but purely based on my experiences and working/managing with over 100 of the staff, my journey was mostly pleasant, interesting work and would highly recommend many of the senior management team.
Great building, with some great people
The effect of some of the changes
My typical day involves working heavily with SAS. Recently I have been working on the new data capture and reporting suite for the new Teacher Training scheme. I also do a lot of ad-hoc data requests and maintain the SAS infrastructure there as well as the internal suite of reporting. I have learnt lots of new areas of SAS but also how to manage a small team and negotiation skills. I have had lots of direct contact with the Cheif Executive and would start at 4am on A Level Results day to update her ASAP. The management team has completely changed in the time I have been there. In fact the whole company has changed. The original focus of Analysis and Research was looking at what had happened in the previous cycle but over time this shifted to what is going to happen. Co-workers are excellent and all have passion in their work. The hardest part of the job is presenting in front of people but I have pushed myself in this area, The most enjoyable aspect of the role is problem solving. Being asked if something can be done and investigating the live system and then incorporating this into the download code or creating an ad-hoc report.
Free parking, restaurant, good holidays, great location and offices.
During the period of my employment UCAS was going through a period of great change, and still is, which can make for a stressful working environment. The individuals that I worked with were great people that had a deep understanding of the business and were all commited to delivering high quality solutions
Very good work colleagues, nice working environment
Chaotic, time of great change, uncertainty about the future
I work directly with our member University and Colleges ensuring that their course and institution information is up to date and correct and it is a pleasure to work with them all. It is a lot of responsibility but I enjoy having responsibility and working in a fast working environment. In addition everyone at the office are very friendly and motivated and I never wake up wishing that I wasn't going to work.
good staff benefits/ managers are flexible with appointments and working hours (to a degree)
i am on contract with no option to changing to a permanent staff member, which doesn't allow me to plan for the future.
