Shelly Harrington Sales and Service Advisor

I joined Unite Students as a Housekeeper in August 2014. I was attracted to the role because I was looking for something more challenging and rewarding. Since I joined I have moved into a Sales and Service Advisor role. Unite Students gave me the confidence to show what I’m capable of and encouraged my career development.

I enjoy my role because we work as a team – it can be stressful at times, but there’s always some to help you and the management are highly supportive. We have a lot of different cultures in our properties and when you see the smile on a student’s face when you have made the effort to make them feel they’re at their home from home is priceless. It makes you realise that all the hard work we put in is worth it.
