Student Services Administrator in York
on 26 December 2021
A positive working environment, let down by management and a challenging sector.
All the Professional Support staff at the University of York in my experience have really cared for the students and really felt they were making a difference to their education and life. There is a lot of enthusiasm and eagerness. Likewise, I've never met an un-helpful colleague: they all are so willing to support and assist you. There is a really positive culture.However, the inefficiencies at the University really let it down. There is a lack of collaboration between Departments and Central Services which means that every Department is its own little fiefdom and does things differently, and Central tries to impose its will on Departments without actually know what impact their changes will cause. You'll find two Departments doing something in two totally different ways with no guidance for Central, but then Central will come up with some "brilliant" new idea and want all staff to implement it, without thinking on how this will actually affect front-line staff and services.The University does seem to be trying to address these inefficiencies through their current Change Programme as part of the Vision for 2030, however confidence in this is very low and there is a lot of doubt on if it will be successful or not. It seems to be redundancy and centralisation by-stealth. Information about the Change Programme is vague and confusing and there has been little input from 'normal' staff.The sector is challenging right now with Government budget cuts, academic strikes, impacts of Brexit, and grumbles over tuition fees. It makes for a fairly tense and stressed atmosphere without much feeling of a long-term stability.Management often seem out-of-touch and communications from the Vice Chancellors office is vague and confusing.There is not much opportunity to progress into a senior role within Departments unless you move 'sideways' into either Central or another Dept. Academics have a promotion framework, but there is nothing for Professional Support staff.Overall? A 5/10 job. It has great pay for an office role but can be stressful and uncertain.
Receptionist in York
on 27 November 2021
It’s a great place to work if your line manager likes you
I loved working at the University of York, however, my line manager was very fond of telling me that I didn’t measure up to the previous Receptionist. She took great delight whenever I made an error.
