Great Place to Work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I was only a volunteer for the campaign team, I was there for a year and all the staff were lovely. My tasks were fun and I really enjoyed the year and i would definitely do it again.

Good for the right person, but that wasn’t me.

Although staff turnover is high, largely due to the nature of the people that work there (graduates largely) it can be a great place to work with amazing benefits. Personally, the KPI’s that were set were largely meaningless, but valuable to UPSU. Found it difficult to see that any work done within UPSU made and difference to students or the wider community which did not give me any job satisfaction being a mental health employer is a positive, but it did not help with my mental health due to a lack of structure

it was a voluntary work

it gave me a sense of responsibility and taught me how to be able to manage people affairs and be able to do well at the university at the same time. overall it was a wonderful challenge that shaped different sides of my personality.

Fun and Engaging Workplace

The Students' Union is a fantastic place to work. The support that they provide for their staff is second to none and the training and morale in the workplace is fantastic. My time at the Union allowed me many opportunities to develop and a typical day was never a typical day. All the staff are keen and engaging and love their jobs, which makes it such a fantastic place to work.

Pros

Training and Development

Cons
