Daniel May Brand Standards Manager

I can honestly say that’s hard to recognise the business as it was five years ago when I joined Unite Students. We used to have paper tenancies, paper inventories and a poor digital presence – now we have online tenancies, our own inspection apps and a customer facing app to manage laundry and post. It’s been the most monumental shift, that’s for sure!

In fact, the only constant in Unite Students is change – we’re always changing, striving to be bigger and better, focusing on students and quality every year. It’s certainly given me the challenge I sought when I joined, and it’s kept me on my toes ever since! The culture is varied, I think it depends what team you’re in, but it’s a very relaxed place that allows you to do what you need to do to get your job done, there’s little attention to playing by the rules.
