What are the best and worst things about your company?
Working on something I'm passionate, working in a university environment, getting lots of opportunities for professional and personal development as well as lots of training.Working not as part of a team in an environment with older colleagues in a new city, being thrown in the deep end and too many expectations for someone new to the role.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The amount of flexibility I have- I get to work on a big range of projects, which is both enjoyable and has helped to develop my time management and organisational skills. My team are great and I feel as though I slotted in nicely to the team from very early on. I work closely with my colleagues on certain projects, and my boss is very positive with allowing us to run with ideas that we have. I get to work on things that I actually care about and feel as though I am doing something positive day to day.My boss can be quite laissez-faire and sometimes I feel as though I could do with a little more guidance on what is wanted, especially since this is my first professional role. Working in sustainability can sometimes be an uphill battle and progress sometimes feels slow in terms of student/ staff engagement.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Seeing the positive impact of my and my team’s projects, which can not only reduce the amount of household food waste and save that family/individual money. Also, it can change their attitude to food, which I have realised during the project many people have a rather unhealthy attitude to food which can go on to impact their happiness and health.Frustrated by a lack of project management which I am unable to influence, but it still has an impact on my own day to day working and success of the overall project. Lack of desire for learning and improvement. These problems are with the organisation I work within, not the agency (change agents).

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Career progression - it's given me an opportunity to get on my career ladder, something that I know (and have experienced) is very competitive in the environmental sector.It's not a permanent position - I wish it was!
