I joined Unite Students in June 2016 having worked in conjunction with Unite Students staff when I held a position at the University of Portsmouth halls of residence. After seeing how Unite Students functioned first hand, I knew it was the place for me. I can honestly say It’s met all my expectations and I’m really happy in my role. Not everyone can say they enjoy their job, but I do and it’s a perfect fit for my skillset.

I’m currently a Maintenance Engineer specialising in plumbing and it’s fair to say that some days are fast paced – and no day is the same as the next, so anything can happen! Having said that, we always deal with everything that comes in in a calm and professional manner and we’re always met with gratitude and thanks for the effort that we put in.

The culture and the attitude of the staff are second to none, and I believe the management style is great. Overall, this is a very rewarding, satisfying job that continually lets me use my skills and personality to enhance the student experience.

“Everyone works together to help each other and this makes Unite Students a great place to work.”

Our people Greg Taylor Maintenance Operative

Greg Taylor only joined Unite Students three months ago, but he’s most definitely found a job that he enjoys.

I joined Unite Students three months ago as a Maintenance Operative. Even though I’ve only been here a short time, I’ve been welcomed from every member of staff and everyone is ready to answer any questions I have, which has been amazing. While there are lots of teams doing various jobs, everyone works together to help each other and this makes Unite Students a great place to work.

I look forward to coming into the office every morning and seeing what jobs that I need to do that day. Whether it’s unblocking showers, stopping leaks or changing light bulbs, I enjoy getting to meet new faces every day and help in a small way. Everyone I work with is happy and willing to talk or listen.

Unite Students is a great place to work – my work is fun and I get to meet new people every day, learning about different cultures and working alongside people I enjoy being around. By joining Unite Students, I have found what many people look for – a job they enjoy!

You can develop and learn new skills whilst working with some of the most amazing, fun, creative and talented people I’ve ever met.

Unite Students has many reward and recognition schemes which truly shows how much they care about their people. I’ve never worked at a company that cares so much about their customers and employees.

I really am proud to work for uS!
