I joined Unite Students in March 2017. I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive about working with students at first, but once you start talking to them and start seeing them every day, you grow in confidence. I love the working environment and the support I get from my colleagues, it’s a lovely place to be.

The culture here is amazing – not only are my colleagues amazing, but the students are, too. I feel really comfortable around my colleagues and know I can go to my supervisor anytime with any concerns. I really enjoy the rewarding feeling I get from my work.

“I love it when we have new intakes of students every year – it’s so rewarding helping them to settle in.”

I was asked by a friend if I could help out with some events for Unite Students in 2004 – I loved the students and people so much that I applied for a full time position and have never looked back! And it just keeps getting better as the company’s policies and processes are evolving.

I work in a very fast-paced environment during certain times of the year – which I love – and for the rest we’re quietly professional. My working relationships with my colleagues are excellent, everyone is passionate focused on what they’re doing, going above and beyond their job role and we all appreciate each other’s workload. My favourite thing about the business is the way the company cares as it supports and develops people – and I’m proof of that. The rewards and benefits are fantastic and I don’t know if any other company that provides this for their employees.

I love it when we have new intakes of students every year – it’s so rewarding helping them to settle in, even if you’re just talking to them because they’re homesick or lonely or just want a chat. Getting their flats ready is so satisfying when you see the look on their faces. I’ve never lost my passion for this and I never will.
