    Not much opportunity for students, but that seems to be changing

    I worked at Loughborough University part-time

    Pros

    The careers services started an initiative called Work@Lboro, which focuses on helping students to find work during term time in Loughborough, either on campus or off. This was not around when I first started. Though I was still lucky enough for find employment with the Sports Development Centre and the IT Services. Both jobs were on a casual basis, which was perfect for students since it gave me the flexibility to study.

    Cons

    The employers did not seem to take account that being employed on a casual basis means that I might not know every detail of the workings. This was particularly true for working at the swimming pool, and I found it frustrating when I was unreasonably expected to know everything about the facility when I only work there about once or twice a month.

    I have been working at Loughborough University

    Pros

    Excellent scenery and sporting facility. Quite a friendly environment with enormous amount of team work. State of the art engineering facility.

    Job insecurity is high. Very quiet and lonely town. Little encouragement about good work done. Unnecessary training courses that waste productive time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    maintain the facility on ground. Encourage fellow researchers more about god work done. Be more concerned by researcher's well being.
