Pleasure working for them, but unfortunately this ended after only a few months due to redundancy. Well organised company and i wish i had been able to progress with them.

Solid team hampered by a lack of interest in staff happiness or wellbeing.

Unfortunately fairly indicative of FE education in general, this was an overworked, underpaid, stressful position where you are constantly held to blame for elements thoroughly outside of you control and are expected to use huge amounts of your time outside of work to complete your work.

Good if you're 'in' with the right people

Lots of people made redundant to make million pound savings, but more managers seemingly appearing after people being let go and principal being paid crazy money. Felt like a number and not a valued member of staff. If you knew the right people or brown nosed enough you'd go far, other wise don't expect to get anywhere beside the front door or stay where you're at.

An employer with lots of opportunities

Weston College has a large number of roles in the education sector with a number of campus buildings to support and work in. The roles are flexible and make good use of the transport links into Weston.

Engaging and interactive workplace

Working as a student ambassador for both Weston College and University Centre Weston (UCW) has been an awesome and life-changing experience which has boosted my self-esteem and made me feel ready for full-time employment, in both short time jobs and my desired job in the future. Work is on a first come, first served basis, which allows you to choose what jobs you want to do and allows you to focus on college/uni work as well. With the added bonus of uni students being paid for the hours put in. Meet and interact with new and friendly teammates, learning team working skills and communication skills. Being lead by a nice and understanding leader.

Pros

Flexible times, Friendly co workers, Engaging work

Cons

Self payment method, Limited job placements

Great culture, great people and great students. Only gave 3 for security as working for agency. FE is challenging but the team I worked with and Weston Mgmt make it easier to bare. Fantastic team of business and travel lecturers who work hard and play hard.

Pros

Management culture and teams

Cons

Its education and you need to react quickly

Team working and professional workplace

A typical day at work for me personally would be to work to the best of my ability, make sure that all of the customers or team members that i have spoken to or dealt with are pleased with the service i have delivered. Also make sure that all of he work that i have been allocated to do has been completed by the end of my working day.

Pros

Job satisfaction

Cons

Not working as a team

Productive

I'd go in early in the morning, to settle and be ready for students to ask questions, and i'd be there to handle absence phonecalls also. The workplace was rather loud at times given it was a college.

Welcoming place to work

Weston College is a pleasant place to work, there is a mixture of Academic staff and office staff which works well but can sometimes cause issues. The culture is all based on academic achievement and the well being of students. The hardest part of the job is accepting that students will come first and so all office staff are expected to put their jobs on hold to help with registration etc. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with.

very uplifting environment

all of the staff i worked with in the graphic design department were extemelly kind and approachable, everything in the work place is also nicelt set out, it may take a little getting use to as it is alrge workplace but is eas to find your way around when you get used to it, the days varied from taking down displays and deconstructing walls throughout the bulding to actually helping develop graphics to go on ssome other departments.

Interesting and fun workplace environment.

During my time working at Weston College as a Tech Genius, I was tasked with carrying out various jobs throughout my shifts which resulted in a constantly-interesting work environment. Getting to help students and staff with IT-related issues was really enjoyable for me as someone who has decent experience with computers and technology. I was also challenged to learn new things about technology or about any other topics related to my job roles as a Tech Genius.

Pros

Flexible work hours. Great management. Technical work environment.

Cons

None.
