Student Living Operations Team Leader in Bath and North East Somerset
on 3 September 2022
Used to be great, now gone downhill!
From when I first started, right up to and even during Covid lockdown I really loved the University. I thought this was the place I'd hang my hat and make a career for the long term.Since post-Covid and our new VC, however, everything's gone downhill. Poor communication between senior management and everyone else, "service reviews" that take over a year, causing everyone anxiety, and an obsession with cost-cutting.Other departments on campus have seen some redundancies, but not many. However, there is an obsession with natural wastage; when people leave they're not replaced, causing more work for everyone else. The single, overriding motivation for everything now seems to be to save money.When I first started there were fairly clear development and progression pathways. Now, however, there is little to no chance of real progression, as when someone a grade above you leaves it's a 90% chance that their role will simply disappear and their duties absorbed by other people.The pay used to be pretty decent but hasn't kept up with inflation. The lowest grades, cleaning staff and porters, seem to get everything as the unions fight for them, but if you're a grade 4 supervisor or above you get very little.

Nice place to work at
Nice colleagues and supportive management. My role can be stressful at times due to the workload over peak times, but I would say that the general working environment is quite relaxed and friendly. Unfortunately, the salary is not the best, but it’s a comfortable place to work with opportunities to transfer to other roles/departments.

Great opportunity stone to further career
Was fortunate to get a job at Bath during the start of the pandemic. I was supported by the management and my department working remotely and developed some excellent skills and experience that have helped me further my career in Higher Education.

Very flexible
Fit around my schedule as a student, as you could pick your hours. Other staff and management were very friendly and genuinely enjoyed working there.

Good place to work
Good place to work generally. I have worked the a long time. Money is not the best compared to other companies. However the pension and other benefits make up for that.
