    Pros

    Very quick to hire after initial informal interview, friendly staff. Able to offer more hours if requested, pay was good for what the role entailed.

    I have been working at University of Leicester full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pretty flexible with hours, they have a great staff development scheme and loads of help/services for keeping calm, counselling, advice etc. Discount off the gym if you join the salary sacrifice scheme. Friendly staff, they're very understandable when it comes to those annoying life situations like having to be home for an inspection/plumber/work of some kind. Very supportive of being healthy mentally and physically, if you're stressed they also do staff yoga etc as well as the counselling service.

    Cons

    Food isnt great and is pricey and there could be more places to sit to eat and vending machines for food. Fixed contracts rather than permanent positions however this is usually down to funding bodies in my case.
