    I have been working at Ellucian full-time (More than a year)


    I have previously held jobs in both the Public and Private sectors and for the last while (less than 1.5 years) I have been working for Ellucian. In that time, I have been promoted and given multiple opportunities to extend myself.
    I find that I am constantly challenged but also well rewarded. I travel frequently within the UK and have also had the opportunity to travel internationally.

    The company is dynamic, well entrenched in the sector and manages to be both Global and Local at the same. I work with a great group of diverse but likeminded individuals. Everyone has their own drive to perform, but each is collectively focused on helping the business and our clients to succeed.


    If you are unprepared for it, the demands of travelling can be a bit of a drag. However, you get into a groove and make the best of it that you can.

    Advice to Management

    We all accept the need to work hard and enjoy a challenge. But, the time it takes to simply get from A to B should not be overlooked.

    As an observation after having visited offices in the USA. Whilst perfectly pleasant, it would be great if the UK location could benefit from some of the same attention.

    However, all in all I believe things are definitely going in the right direction!

    Contracts Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milton Keynes, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Ellucian (Milton Keynes, England).


    The interview took part in three stages. I submitted my CV to an online portal and was then called for a telephone screening interview by an internal Recruiter, which took place two weeks later and lasted around 30 minutes. The Recruiter asked me questions about my experience and explained a bit more detail about Ellucian and the role.

    Around two weeks later I undertook two face-to-face video-based interviews with the Hiring Manager and a potential colleague, who are both based in the US office. These interviews were approximately 20 minutes each and took place in the evening.

    I was then invited to a face-to-face panel style interview a week later with Counsel at Ellucian's office based in Milton Keynes. This interview lasted around 30 minutes and I was informed that I was the last of four candidates to interview at this final stage.
