Yard Assistant (Former Employee) – Preston – 26 September 2017
I loved working at myerscough college. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the horses are fab to work with. No day is the same. All yard jobs needed to be complete within a time frame but its not difficult to accomplish. Everyone is fun to be with and everyone has a laugh.
Great array of animals, great opportunity to learn
All Rounder (Former Employee) – Preston – 14 September 2017
At the college every week was a chance to work at a different station working with different animals say, one week you could be working with poison dart frogs to working with an alpaca or with poultry or even common mynah birds there is a huge variety of animals you get to take care of which can widen your experience with them giving you lots of job opportunities in the future it can also give you chance to get over a fear of one animal in particular in which the tutors are fantastic at helping you with and will take it as slow as you need like snakes or insects or even rabbits or goats. The hardest part is not having everyday to work with the animals and also you don't get to chose which section you work at. You feed water the animals clean out their inclosures and health checking them to make sure they're in good health. The most enjoyable part is getting to cuddle or play with the animal after you have done everything you needed to do.
Opportunities to work with a wide variety of animals
Working with animals you may have a fear of or aren't keen on
As a casual member of staff I highly recommend Myerscough College as a work place
Groom (Former Employee) – Preston – 26 August 2017
I worked at Myerscough College for three years while I was a student studying equine management and development (BA) I had three positions overall in catering, on stable yard in the equine department and in housekeeping. Overall I had a very pleasant experience working with highly motivated and skilled professionals. I was encouraged to take more exams to boost my career and the support to learn more was available whenever I needed it. I spent most of my time working on the stable yard with a fantastic team. I was sad to leave it all behind when I completed my degree.

Being just a student meant that there was obviously no pay. Through my course I was able to learn a lot about the chosen subject and had the privilege to work alongside great mentors. Overall good place to study.
Assistant Head of Department (Sport) (Former Employee) – Preston, ENG – 1 July 2015
Good to work here and there's a great team of managers who are honest and forthright with their expectations of staff. Toughest part was balancing the management of two satellite centres with linking in to the main campus but this got easier with experience. The enjoyment of the job was the ability to make a tangible difference to the lives of young people without the often unnecessary thumb-twirling of meetings to make small amendments to the student culture. A great place to work and would recommend it highly.
Friendly, positive atmosphere, good ethos
Salaries are in line with land-based FECs which are not the highest
