Alexandra Iftodi Service and Sales Assistant

I joined the business in April 2016 as a full time Service and Sales Assistant, but started university myself in September so I’m now part-time. I love the variance of the role – the job is not repetitive at all so I don’t find it boring and every day is different!

I hadn’t heard of the company before I applied but I did some research and I looked at the videos on the website and thought: “They look like they’re having so much fun – I want to work there, too!” And it hasn’t disappointed.

The working environment is great, it’s professional but also friendly and fun. Everyone is approachable and supportive, including the management team. It’s fast-paced but organised – you know what to expect and there are lots of opportunities to be creative and active.

If you want a job that makes you smile while you’re heading to work, apply to Unite Students, you won’t regret it.

Julian Carter Sales and Service Assistant

As a Sales and Service Assistant, I work with students to help them deal with everyday problems. It’s a fast-paced role and I love it!

My team is like an extended family to me. And because we all have different views on things, we often find great solutions to problems because we look at things from a different perspective. The business is always evolving and there’s always something new happening, which keeps us on our toes.

I enjoy working with the students, because the fact we’re close in age means I can relate to some of their problems and worries. The best thing is solving problems and seeing how appreciate they are of the hard work you’ve put in to help them. I also really enjoy watching them grow into independent adults, which I get to witness on a first-hand basis.

Nataliya Laleva Housekeeper

I’m a Housekeeper and I clean rooms, kitchens and public areas. The people who work here are friendly and reliable and the atmosphere is great. I’m happy and feel appreciated because I have lots of opportunities for growth and development. Unite Students provides courses to improve my skills and give me training opportunities. Like my Line Manager who’s been giving me more responsibility helping with stock orders and supporting other buildings.

I feel comfortable here because we don’t have any pressure from our leadership teams. They are always ready to listen to us if we have any ideas about the work, ideas are welcomed and we have the possibility to do something more in our job.
