Service Desk Analyst (Former Employee) – Durham, Durham – 3 June 2017
As an IT Service Desk Analyst it was great to be both behind the scenes and in direct contact with internal and external stakeholders. My only con for this position would be the salary of this job for the workload.
It was a fun working environment as I worked with many different people
Food Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Stockton-On-Tees – 24 May 2017
i enjoyed working at Durham but that was more to do with the people I worked with than the actual job as I got along really well with everyone. The work itself ranged from easy to tough depending on how many customers turned up.
Typically a 35 or 37.5 work week with flexible hours. My job was quite sedentary with sitting at my desk for most hours of the day. The workplace and management are quite relaxed but never the less, deadlines are always met by the department. The staff are very pleasant and are always willing to help.
Site Manager (Former Employee) – Various Campuse's – 12 April 2017
The work was very interesting. The Project Managers who ran the various Site's for The Universitie's were helpful & knowledgeable. I was sad when the project's came to an end as every day was different with fresh challenges to keep you on your toes
Postdoctoral Fellow (Current Employee) – Durham, UK – 14 February 2017
As a postdoctoral researcher in a science department, I have found the research in Durham to be world class, but the working environment within the department is not good. The management of junior staff is almost non-existent and the leadership is dysfunctional.
An excellent academic experience and a beautiful city. Fantastic English department with supportive professors. A great choices of modules. The collegiate system helps you feel a part of the university.
Waitress (Former Employee) – Durham – 18 November 2016
I loved working at St Chads that staff were easy to get on with the management was fantastic I love working formals and seeing all the students and I gain valuable people skills and I typically on a day to day basis would clear and re set the hall, prepare the food for the evening meal and the serve and clear. The hardest part was being on my feet constantly but I soon got used to it.
Kitchen Porter (Former Employee) – Durham – 27 September 2016
Cleaning and maintaining a clean work place to standard operation procedures. My co workers were all very helpful and we worked together as a team. It was a good working experience and something different to what i was used too.

Prácticas universitarias (Former Employee) – Durham – 19 August 2016
El ambiente relajado y las ganas de que todos los visitantes pudieran disfrutar de un dia divertido mientras aprendían caracterizaba el día a día en el learning team del museum de la uniersidad de Durham. El hecho de trabajar frente al público, mayormente niños con gran entusiasmo por ir de excursión al museo, emfatizaba la faceta acojedora y pro-activa de todos los miembros del equipo.
