Student Ambassador (Current Employee) –  Loughborough, Leicestershire31 March 2019
• Have been awarded Ambassador of the week in August 2018.
• I helped pupils with their activities on science activity day, engineering experience day
• I was in the media team of School Games 2018.
• During Applicant Days for students, I conduct tours of the campus, meeting and greeting students and their guests and generally answer any questions they have regarding the University, student life and opportunities students have once they arrive.

All theses helped me develop communication skills and confidence.

Uninspiring management
Volunteer (Former Employee) –  Loughborough, Leicestershire5 March 2019
Loughborough University is in itself one of the most dynamic and inspiring places in the East Midlands. Global leader of sports studies and rising up the University charts it ticks all the boxes from a student perspective. Working here on the other hand is not quite as inspiring. In order to progress you very much have to be in the right 'clique', and motivation for staff is minimal, often expected to add more and more to the working day with no return or reward (or even thanks). Don't let this review put you off, it has it's moments of being a great place to work, it's just a shame that sometimes the level of intelligence from the middle-management team leaves a lot to be desired.... Pays well for what is expected of you.
Pros
Great people, inspiring atmosphere
Cons
Poor leadership

Extremely supportive and well paid
Student Ambassador and Peer Mentor (Former Employee) –  Loughborough, Leicestershire29 June 2018
The role was fairly straight forwards. We were employed to show how great Loughborough is, and that's easy when you've been there for 4 years. Anyone employed there could list off great things about Loughborough all day; including societies, sports, well-being, inclusion, support, tech help and more.

Punching well above its weight as an institution
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Loughborough6 April 2018
Generally a good working environment and people are generally friendly and well meaning. However management and senior management quality leaves a great deal to be desired; lack of strategic goals and vision, poor competencies, poorly scrutinised.
Academic community generally excellent though.
