Clare Ballinger City Manager

I began my career with Unite Students in 2011 as a Service and Sales Manager. At the time, I didn’t know a huge amount about the company, apart from what I’d read online. I was attracted to the position as it was something very different to what I was doing, but I could see I had transferable skills.

The working environment here is fast paced and challenging and you have a real ability to put your own mark on what you do, which I really enjoy. The culture encourages you to treat properties as your own, make decisions and have accountability – and the business rewards well and recognises people’s strengths. Autonomy is important to me and I like the opportunities I have to grow and develop.

The people are incredible, I love the team around me – even when the work is incredibly hard, we find ways to have fun! The students are why I come to work, I know that what I say makes a difference to them and that’s why it’s such a privilege to be part of a young person’s life during this time.
