Reviews:

“Catering department isn't up to much”

Great, friendly staff. Reasonable working hours and (of course) university holidays! I worked in the catering department (in the main cafeteria as well as Brookes Restaurant) and must say that the people working at Brookes are brill!

The pay is pretty crummy (despite the university flourishing in recent years)

The 1960's architecture. Barf!

“Beautiful location, great research resources, too much focus on income streams too little on students and quality”

Great location – Oxford is lovely, great place to work and also has good transport connections with road, rail and airport (Heathrow) so easy to get to Polite working atmosphere, quite open and on the whole reasonably friendly – but don't expect many laughs Access to the journals in the Bodleian library Good environment for helping lecturers learn how to teach The international students are well looked after Expanding the campus into Gipsy Lane - it looks very new and well-equipped Students tend to be pleasant and respectful to a level

When you're focused on researching but teaching as well it's a huge time commitment. You don't want to short change the students so you give you absolute best to them and you really need strong experienced leadership in the faculty to help with winning grants and set the example of how to go about the job when you're starting out. Without this it's very dispiriting and a lot of staff keep leaving for lack of leadership and support. This staff drainage is looked on favourably as recruitment has been halted and replacements are not sought, so workloads getting higher and even less manageable because of this. Multiple campuse ...

Without this it's very dispiriting and a lot of staff keep leaving for lack of leadership and support. This staff drainage is looked on favourably as recruitment has been halted and replacements are not sought, so workloads getting higher and even less manageable because of this. Multiple campuses mean that it's really hard to network fully and co-operate with other teams in other areas, so we don't get any of the benefits which working more collaboratively would bring Lack of common areas for teaching staff to relax in so you don't get to know the other staff or socialise with them Very superficial approach to strategy. Strategy at the top is very linear and one-track ie; purely on income streams. The only focus on students or on the product of the university – ie: the research, the education and the learning of the future - is in terms of what will make a quick quid More long-term strategies are needed addressing the learning environment and the quality of the learning, and curriculum timings and staff satisfaction to reduce turnover and many other things which are not on the agenda more
