Jo Priddey
I started working with the OU as temporary staff through Manpower during the pandemic. I thought the initial training was fantastic and felt well prepared to start working. When I was offered a permanent position it was great that the OU took my personal needs into consideration so that I am able to complete my degree and work 4 days a week.

Charles White
The recruitment process was smooth from start to finish. As an applicant, it was useful to have the selection process made clear to you from the outset. Communication from Manpower was, and remains, good. Excellent candidate care continues to be provided, they are both responsive and proactive.

So far the Open University has been the best job I have ever had, a very relaxed environment, everyone open to helping one another, no pressure and all trainers prioritise the quality of calls rather than the quantity.

Sarah George
Whilst working at the Open University, the support I have received has been outstanding; from colleagues at advisor level, to the senior management team, there is not a question or query that has not been resolved without a swift and appropriate response.

Working with the Open University has opened me to a lot. There are a lot of trainings to improve your skills and open you to other possibilities. There is room for growth. A lot of it. And did you know you can study for FREE as permanent staff? Wow! There are other juicy perks too.
