Principal HR Business Partner (Current Employee) – London – 12 January 2018
UCL is a great employer. With over 12,000 staff and over 30,000 students, there are plenty of opportunities for career development, enrichment and enhancement in both academic and professional service spheres.
I have worked in HR at UCL for many years, until Jan 2018, and have thrived on a wide range of challenges and initiatives. Days have rarely been the same, and with such a broad range of academic disciplines it is a buzzy and exciting place to be.
Location-wise, Bloomsbury is great; very much the university quarter of London. There is lots of investment in the estate and with UCL East, more to come.
Downsides? as with any place, lots to do and never enough time. Upside? The incredible academic and scientific advancements; the people; the culture and ethos.

Printroom manageress. (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 6 September 2017
I am able to comment that although I was only a teenager I got a good salary and a Cheese and Wine Party as the youngest ever management position they had employed since King Henry the 8th had opened it. The litho print machine wasn't there then. It was excellent employment and I left to start a family.
Telephone Interviewer (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 24 July 2017
Got along very well with colleague's, we were like a family as the team over time grew smaller and closer. The job was very straight forward, it was not a chore to go in to work as the environment was friendly.
Ambiente de trabajo competitivo, pero buen balance con la vida personal

You have to work hard but you can advance your career
PhD student (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 8 March 2017
You have to work hard but you can advance your career working for UCL. As always, academia is not great for keeping a goof life/work balance but this is especially true in high-ranked universities. Job security is not guaranteed if you are not proactive in searching and applying (preferably successfully) to research grants.
A very fun place to work ......Great individuals all round

Mentor (Volunteer) (Current Employee) – London – 9 November 2016
During the mentor Programme, I could meet new people form different countries. The main aim of this program is to help those new students get used to UCL and London, i.e. to help them settle down to their study and living in London. I enjoy this volunteer experience although it is free, since this can help me to communicate with new people and build my experience.
