Great facilities. You meet plenty of bright, interesting, motivated people and Nottingham is a great city to work in. There's quite a bit of part-time work, so you can earn as you learn, but full-time posts are a lot rarer. This means you're unlikley to be able to build a long-term career at Nottingham Trent. Reasonable rates of pay.
Management decisions can be hard to fathom and for part-time or sessional staff, work allocations can seem unfair. There's very little job security for these staff. You might come under pressure to bump up student grades.
Nottingham has great nightlife.
“Able and motivated people”
Lovely working atmosphere with helpful, keen and cheerful colleagues. Some able and motivated people. Liberal outlook and cosmopolitan feel to uni life. Strong focus on professional and academic development. Occupational health advisors work alongside staff to promote NT's 'wellbeing at work' scheme.
Lots of bureaucratic systems and admin, with very poor communication from the top of the university. Pay could be a lot better. Very little job security and a tendency by the university administration to focus on short-term objectives.
Flexible benefits scheme, covering everything from shopping vouchers to childcare. Oh and they have a 30 foot climbing wall in the sports centre.
