Very top heavy. Some on high salaries who do not have a clue of what goes on. Lots of different it systems that do not join up and some are so old fashioned. Lots and lots of minuting first no good reason , could be done online. Managers do not motivate only criticise they come up with ideas but do not like staff to have an input. Go ahead with things that obviously will not work.
Cons
Rotas rotas rotas . Restructure on leave and said flexi but no no no

Working in the sports centre was great, met so many nice people and provided plenty of experience in my areas of interest. The facilities are very modern, clean and always presentable and the staff are so friendly.

A very good place to work in terms of work/life balance. Great perks and benefits in terms of holidays, pay, flexitime etc. The only downside is the progression side of things really. They seem to restructure a lot and then move people around so the people further down don't get much chance to get higher as people are put in the positions higher during restructures.
Pros
Good flexibility/wages/perks
Cons
Not much chance for progression

One of the best workplaces I have ever worked for. The team are super friendly and nice. The managers are very supportive. I would love to work for UCLan again. The only problem is the contracts are fixed and short.

We worked very long hours but, the outcome was outstanding. Currently filing provisional patency in which I am the co-investigator in. In the end, all the hard work was paid off.

Each day can be quite different due to the nature of the job and being part of the casual staff there is always something new to learn. I enjoy meeting the new people that come and use the sports facilities

I am a student at UCLan, I work in a supportive and happy environment. My job role is professional and my head/manager provide us full guidance in the work time when needed. I learned team work and problem solving skills in this place.

But I had an amazing experience learning here. It taught me so much about singing, acting, dance and the industry! Which gave me challenges and opportunities that you can’t gain alone.

Everyday you worked with people there, trying to teach them what you know with complete freedom the fact that the management trusted us and allowed us to take the work in our own hands. The workplace culture is easy going and rushing is not necessary since you have time to workout at the end of the day aswell. The hardest part of the job was sometimes not many students were coming due to exams and summer period and the most enjoyable part was seeing each client and student make a different in their lifestyle, by making the right choices and choosing a healthy life instead.

Overall I found the environment to be professional but friendly. The other staff were welcoming and happy to help. Sometimes tedious tasks but always manageable workload.

Fun and Interactive work environment. However, a little chaotic due to the number of staff, too many people to organise between. A typical day would be meeting and greeting prospective students with their parents, showing them around the university and answering any questions they may have had. This role also provided office work by filling in information of potential students onto the online database.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Long hours, pay and hours were irregular

I worked here as a member of the Welcome Team. A typical day for me included signing in and changing into my uniform. I mainly worked the city and campus tours which involved taking a group of potential students and their families around the city/campus on a 30-40min tour. Explaining what student life is like and answering any questions before directing them where they can see further sights at UCLan. I learned time management and how to correctly address questions should I not be aware of the answer (directing them to someone who I believed would know). This was an enjoyable and easy feeling job - I admit I didn't feel any stress whilst working here/
Pros
Lovely people to work with, paid training days.
Cons
Long hours.
