I have been working within the Facilities Management department at UCLan for the past 11 months. I have mainly worked within the UCLan Sports Arena. Working within such a close knit team has been really rewarding. I have been able to build upon skills which have allowed me to become more competent within my role.

UCLan ultimately recognises the potential of its hard working employees. After seven months of being employed with UCLan, supervisors recognised my commitment to this vibrant organisation, and offered me an opportunity to develop my skills through the Staff Development Scheme. I was more than happy to take this opportunity as I am always looking for ways in which I can develop my skills. I have since been successful in developing my career here, and have recently secured a new role as Security Patrol Officer. This is not just a financial promotion, but will also be beneficial to myself and my family as I will gain a good work-life balance. I thoroughly enjoy my time working for the University. I find the environment and members of staff friendly and co-operative.

I would definitely recommend UCLan to anyone who is looking for full-time or part-time employment in an organisation which not only cares about its employees, but works hard to recognise and reward their potential.
