Meet our people / Peter Johnson

Peter is our Facilities Supervisor in Manchester and takes pride in leading a team recognised as one of the best in Unite Students. He is also the non-scuba diving Chairman of Oldham Sub Aqua Club.

“Lots of companies say that the customer is key, but it’s something we really believe in and act on at Unite Students. I work closely with our operations team managers as well as a small group of maintenance professionals to make sure that everything runs smoothly.

We’re a really close-knit team and we’re great at handling the unexpected – which can happen every day. Your views really matter here and if you’re good at your job, the company will back you to the hilt.

I was asked to help with the development of our new hand-held Personal Device Assistant system for scheduling maintenance activities. We designed the look, improved the usability, influenced the way the drop-down windows work – and we’ve ended up with something a million miles better than before. This is a company that values your ideas and listens to your feedback, and the senior managers’ doors are always open. I would say that if you want to progress, this is the place to do it.”
