Excellent work/life balance and flexibility
Excellent holiday package, 25 days per year plus approx. 15.5 additional close days per year.Really good flexible working as well.Slow to move to using laptops instead of desktops and the IT department is a bit clunky (the service desk staff are fantastic though!).

Administrator in Leeds, West Yorkshire
on 31 March 2022
Falling rates of pay an increasing workloads
I worked in a admin role. Opportunities for training and advancement are limited. Rewarded for hard work during start of pandemic with 0% pay rise although this is negotiated nationally not just by Leeds. Staff are currently striking over poor pay, conditions and pensions which makes for an unsettling atmosphere on campus and a high turnover of staff.Academics tend to be the main focus. Support staff secondary.
Research Administrator in Woodhouse Lane
on 28 February 2022
Still a vibrant place to work, but a shadow of its former glory.
Over the past few years all staff have suffered from poor/no wage rises, marked increase in work and burn out rates. Its sad to see from a Russell Group University, although it has strong ethics, and a genuine wish to create an inclusive and fair working environment.

If you want communication then this is not the place for you.
You need to know a lot of information which changes and you are the last person to know. Communication is the worst that I have ever known, to say that it is a teaching University the communication between staff is shocking.
