It's a great place to work as work mates offer alot of support.
However ....... management are a sly bunch and will take credit for projects others in the department have undertaken and completed successfully.

This job has been amazing to develop communication skills alongside my studies. It has allowed me to widen my knowledge on the College and help other people take the big step in their lives of moving away from home and choosing the correct path to their future career.
Pros
You get to meet a lot of people, improves a lot of skills such as communication and confidence, it allows working in a team but also as an individual.
Cons
You have to work in all weathers

High pressure, low reward environment with hostile middle and upper management. Low level of care for staff wellbeing. Many staff feel similarly but scared to speak out for fear of retribution from a protected inner circle. Culture is truly toxic.

Great varied role within a team. Everyone was keen to work together to give students the best experience. It was great to show prospective students around campus and answer the questions they had.

The time I spent working at Hartpury college I was a personal assistant for someone who was in charge of the summer ball. I will admit briefly my time was a entirely enjoyable experience and the people that I have met have been amazing.

But I do have to say that my improvements are based on certain peoples work ethics and attitude towards other members of staff. Interestingly as well they decide to feel that relationships included within the workplace are better then anything else.

A college devoid of ambition, with an underlying culture of bullying. The pay is below market rates and staff turnover high. Despite the nice country setting, and some good workers, there is always a sense of fear amongst staff.

A very stressful environment in which to work.
Management want more and more all the time.


Never grateful, no one says thanks.. There is a lot of insecurity amongst staff and this shows in the atmosphere in this workplace. Don't work here.

with a change of management in certain departments this place would be a really nice place to work.
The animal management manager lacked as much experience as other team members and it was clear to see. Often ignoring suggestions for improvement and never supportive of staff.

If you are content in acquiring a poorly paid, comparatively, job, with no iota of ambition, and don't expect any support from a clueless and inadequate hierarchy, this is the place for you. Those who are qualified, driven and aspiring - avoid at ALL COSTS.
Pros
Scenery is lovely
Cons
Poorly managed; no ambition; limited support; out of touch with actual universities

Arrive at Hartpury. I would arrive at lectures lasting up to an 1 hour 30 minutes each time. after this lecture a project was given to be completed in 2 to 3 weeks. once handed in this would be marked.
Thursday and Friday I would attend practical days at outdoor centre through the South West often going to Wales.

the hardest part as completing the assignments and trying to get the highest mark possible.

Most enjoyable part was meeting new people and learning outside the classroom.
Pros
Really good management, Visting new outdoor centre
Cons
Lots of assignments
