Jody McFarland General Manager

Working in Glasgow where the student accommodation job market is becoming a sector in its own right, lots of sales advisors left Unite Students to develop their careers at competitors. However, I’ve seen first-hand that the level of support you have at Unite Students is far superior and just isn’t available anywhere else. The company encourages you to do as much as you want. I’ve had countless opportunities to enhance my skills, including leadership courses, business coaching and mentoring. I also feel listened to when it comes to my ideas about how we enhance our service for our customers.

As clichéd as it sounds, no two days are the same here and I love the fast pace of city operations – knowing that at times we have a very small window to pull together and get the job done, and yet somehow we nearly always do! We have great camaraderie in the team and I love that.

I feel really lucky working for a company whereby small benefits have an effect on your wallet. I’ve taken advantage of the share save scheme, free breakdown cover, cheaper airport parking, reduced price cinema tickets and the bike to work scheme. Unite Students help support you with more than just your monthly salary and that makes me feel like they care about me.
