Recent poor decisions on capital spend that were not needed has left the University with a financial headache that has led to extensive cuts of highly experience and able staff whilst the poor managers remain. As a result there is a highly toxic environment. Staff feel insecure and have no confidence in the management, something reflected in a recent Union vote. There is little job security.
decent annual leave and pay
poor management, toxic environment, no career progression, poor job security
During my placement with the All Golds at the Prince of Wales stadium in Cheltenham, I was emailing and contacting a lot of different people and each week it was someone different it was vital that I managed and organised all of their information. It was also important that I had coordinated all the different aspects that went into a successful game as much in advance as I could, for example the caterers needed to know how many players and guests they were cooking for 3 days in advance which meant I had to make sure I had contacted the opposition as soon as I could to get a response.
Responsibilities in this job revolved around talking to students in your school, which meant you got to know a lot of people and helped with social skills and team-working skills. The role is useful for students who want to make a difference in the university and work with others who are representatives of their respective schools.
Ability to take part in university meetings
Students may not always turn up to meetings
University of Gloucestershire is a small university with big ambitions both for its staff and its students. I transitioned from student to a lecturer because I wanted to benefit from the kind of professional support and development that I could see was available to the academics working there.
Beautiful location, friendly team, supportive management
Salaries are average for the sector

Good benefits, but very poorly managed and no culture. Doomed to repeat it's mistakes. Eg. get rid of drama degrees, then bring them back. Some departments get restructured/relocated every few years, even though they only need a phone and internet access... a complete waste of time and resources. Some have moved more than 5 times in the last 10 years Seriously needs to get it together....
Poor management, no culture
