Marketing (Former Employee) – London – 5 September 2017
Some of the managers are really good but some are clueless and scared to loose the job, this has repercussions on all the members of the team. all in all is a place with potential if more open to a flat-hierarchy approach.
Help Desk (Former Employee) – Docklands, Greater London – 26 July 2017
I worked here for around 18 months after Uni. This is a great place for part time work. Great staff to work with, good pay as they start you on living wage for London and give you sound holiday package. The spread of work is interesting and work colleagues helped me to focus on getting tasks completed and helped me to improve without being over critical. Managers I met were supportive and took an interest. There is a nice vibe, people smiling and clear about university as it serves east london. Would definitely have liked to stay on as could see potential career. Have kept in touch with few people so will try to get back. Thank you UEL for giving me the best start to my working life.
good support which increased my skills. good integration and communication between departments
Digital resources intern (Former Employee) – Docklands campus – 19 July 2017
As an intern my job was to assist the IT team in the transfer of services from an internet to an intranet environment. My work experiences in the past have been intense and demanding, working to very tight deadlines. Working in a University was a lot slower and not demanding. This initially gave myself a few problems in adapting to a work culture that was not profit driven but service driven. The most enjoyable part of the job was having a lunch hour. In the previous 35 years of employment, a lunch hour was not allowed or given.

Careers Consultant (Current Employee) – Stratford, Greater London – 13 June 2017
I have been at UEL for 3 years and have thoroughly enjoyed my time here . I was fortunate to have a line manager who was a great believer in CIPD and autonomy. I was also lucky enough to work in a cohesive , collegiate and supportive team. This enabled me to be instrumental in developing the UEL Professional Development Award, that awarded students for developing their employability skills . I was also given the opportunity of create and deliver employability workshops to over 2k students over a 3 year period. Overall I have had a positive experience and am now looking to further develop my career.
