team leader (Former Employee) – Nottingham – 14 May 2018
I learnt a lot of new skills that couldn't be gained elsewhere as I was able to work with lots of different people and have a chance to get involved with helping them in a way that would benefit them positively.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – All campuses – 17 May 2018
Shift pattern is terrible, very poor work/life balance. Management are directorial. The organisation does not care about their employees well-being, even though on the surface they appear to. Don't touch them.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – CITY – 23 April 2018
Very poor management do not care about the staff get rid of people very easily no interest in there welfare,they employ you at one place on certain hours and then try and move you around and work longer hours,the shift pattern is the worst I have ever seen.
Reception Officer (Former Employee) – Nottingham – 7 April 2018
I worked as a Reception Officer and was the first point of contact for students/visitors. The structure was fantastic and everything was in order. Relevant protocols were in place to protect staff, students and delegates.
Great to work alongside the University I am currently attending. Great job for students who are doing their degree and are looking for work on the side. Always understandable of degree deadlines and having to change working hours where necessary.
Consumer Behaviour Lecturer (UK) (Former Employee) – Nottingham, England – 27 March 2018
Working at Nottingham Trent was an unplanned venture, as I just completed my master's degree and was invited to an interview. The interview process was informal and comfortable, overall the hiring process was fairly quick. I was employed as a contacted lecturer in the fashion MA program (FMMC), paid per hour for lecturing and marking. I found the pay to be appropriate, however hours were limited. I recommend this university to any academic, or any recent graduate who would like to pursue academia as a career. Internally there are opportunities for side research projects, which may or may not be funded. Also in terms of creating work, depending on your manage you have a lot of freedom in creating your own lesson plans and presentations.

Student Ambassador (Current Employee) – Nottingham – 10 March 2018
The jobs range from working on open days giving tours and directing prospective students around campus, to conducting post offer phone calls and bag packing. I have become more confidant during my time in this role at speaking in front of large crowds. The jobs are fun and easy going however it can sometimes be rather cold during winter open days. The flexibility to fit work round my studies is second to none and the pay is competitive.

Nottingham Fashion Week-photographer and writer (Former Employee) – Nottingham – 1 March 2018
I shot the garments and catwalk of first and second year student at Nottingham Trent University. I interacted with the designer so I understood the concept behind their garment which then made it easier to shoot the editorial and therefore tell a story.
The university offers great opportunities for temporary employment, timetabling all of your shifts around your lectures and seminars so you will never have a shift that clashes with your contact hours. Supervisors are helpful and friendly, talking you through any problem that may arise.
SYSTEMS COORDINATOR (Current Employee) – Nottingham City Centre, Nottinghamshire – 18 January 2018
As someone with long-term and severe health problems, I never felt that I was given appropriate support, especially given that my particular ullness formed part of the organisations mealy-mouthed strategies
I enjoyed everything about this role and was definitely one of the best years of my life and time at Nottingham Trent University. It was a normal 9 to 5 routine, but new ideas were listened to and encouraged within reason. I learned alot from the role and would encourage anybody with a passion or interest in marketing, writing, copywriting to work for this organisation.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Clifton, Nottinghamshire – 2 January 2018
