Its a great place to work. I feel genuinely respected, appreciated, rewarded for good work and most importantly they offer genuine flexible working where no one begrudges you a true work life balance. A real breath of fresh air from some companies who claim to offer flexible working and be forward thinking but the reality doesn't match the claims. The University is a really positive working environment and I am enjoying my time here immensely. Great annual leave allowance and pension too. During the pandemic, the University have been an employer to be proud of, there is so much work they are doing to support the local hospitals with scanning equipment, PPE, nursing and other healthcare workers, Ipads for patients to keep in touch with their loved ones, Covid-19 testing stations, and this is on top of the usual programme of civic engagement and funding.
The food is quite pricey compared with other staff food provision I have used but I just take my own.

Amazing sites and facilities filled with lovely people, state of the art facilities with a really relaxed working environment. The University has a real desire to grow and better itself and its achieving this.
The pay is not competitive, mine is out by about 20k. They say the working environment is but it isn't really. The main campus has an issue with parking it was not uncommon to not be able to park. They charge employees for a parking permit but then say they cant use the facilities on certain days. To try and get around some of the issues they have brought in a private enforcement company who are now fining employees who are just trying to get into work and make the university a better place. I have heard some of my colleagues who look after the service delivery have been exposed to asbestos.Continue reading
Thank you for your review and feedback. Whilst we restrict parking on Student Open Days to ensure our visitors to the University are adequately accommodated for, we do provide significant alternative parking arrangements including a free shuttle bus to and from the alternative car park. Our parking arrangements must support both staff and students, however we know it can get very busy on campus! As such we encourage staff and students to find alternative methods to getting into the main campus, these include the free buses that run across Derby (including to and from the train station and between sites) and a staff 'cycle to work' scheme.

Some wonderful colleagues across the University and great work going on. Lovely work environment, professional and committed staff on the whole. Good leave allowance and benefits.
Inconsistent management and policies which causes stress and confusion, overwhelming workload, under-resourced team although happy to use temps. Academic side seems to be really innovative and forward-thinking but the corporate side needs to update itself significantly!Continue reading

Friendly and welcoming working environment Supportive and encouraging Development Opportunities Progressive Culture
Hierarchical structure sometimes restricts direct progression
- Former Contractor★★★★★RecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Wonderful work environment with everyone willing to lend a hand when needed. Questions are welcomed and there is a feeling of camaraderie in the office. Especially loved the informal nature of communication within the office space irrespective of rank. Always someone offering to make a coffee or tea.
Salaries are not paid till the middle of the next month which can be a bit of a bother.
