It is good place to work , most of the have record of less to less 10 to.15 year’s minimum service some staff joined when they were in teenage and put in 30 years of service. It shows how good are the employers .


Job flexibility


Always good and bad staff with negative approach always .

A very supportive environment to work in

I feel I am supported as a Student counsellor at the University. I belong to a sub team of like minded people. I have been able to learn and stretch myself as a counsellor and it'd great to work with the students

A stressful, very demanding environment with huge workload.

Pressure from management is incredibly intense. Working outside contracted hours is common given the high expectations and big workload. The goalposts of expectation change frequently.

Demanding and rewarding workplace

I had all the support as a university tutor that I required. One of the best universities for Accounting and Finance. They could introduce a one-day training for new employees.

Stimulating environment.

I've felt valued and supported at Strathclyde. Enjoyed every work day since being appointed in 2015.I would recommend it to other professionals looking a career in HE.

A productive and exciting place to work

Working at Strathclyde is very enjoyable as the pace of work is fast, people that I came across tended to be open-minded, hard-working, and productive. Working here is challenging as the pace of work at certain times of the year can be almost too fast but I always feel challenged and motivated to do well. Staff are friendly and supportive and the university has fantastic courses available for staff. Would recommend working here highly.

Friendly Environment

Many jobs available depending on the time of year and what is available, but the staff are all lovely and there is easy accessibility to tea and coffee. Some jobs can be quick paced or long hours of standing to guide people but definitely worth the pay.


Free tea/coffee, friendly colleagues


Can spend a long time standing depending on the job

academia is fun but fraught with funding issues!

If you have an inquestive mind and love to solve problems, academia is for you. However, you have to accept that funding is key and be prepared to chase money and adapt your research skills and knowledge to accommodate for the availability of funding in order to stay in employment...It can be stressful!!!

Great employers for students

As a Student Ambassador, the hours are flexible around you and it's only when required. The only thing is that it's not a steady income so if you're looking for a reliable income I wouldn't recommend being a Student Ambassador. However, if it's just for a little bit of extra cash here and there, then I would say that's perfect!

not for those who wish to advance

ok but dont expect miracles, very limited advancement options, management use the department as their own personal police force and enjoy having the staff below them at loggerheads

Great work experience for students

Telethon calling provided a lot of really interesting information into options available after graduating from Strathclyde. Speaking to alumni helped greatly in discovering options and greatly helped improve my interpersonal skills

Stepping stone to other opportune academic positions.

I thought one second year module, assessed the performance of the cohort and submitted marks to the relevant Department. I was writing up my PhD thesis at the moment and needed financial support to meet the basic needs of my family. My student allowance has depleted and I had to take any role that can support basic subsistence needs to my family. I was very thankful to the University for availing the amount to help me through the PhD Process.

Great lecturers & productives

The course "Civil & Environmental Engineering" was very interesting and increased my desire to learn about the essential structural component to infastruture. This was done through the well qualified lecturers who were well versed in the subjects and were able to deliver these lectuers a fun and productive way

Challenging, Busy with a good dose of humour required

Working at Strathclyde can never be described by a typical day. No day is the same. As processes are complex it can be challenging to meet deadlines. However with the help of all colleagues (academic and administrative) we get the job done. The most enjoyable part is when you see the fruits of your labour ... the students succeeding!
