Staff Stories

Bucks is a fantastic place to work; since starting I have been well supported in increasing my qualifications and provided with a wealth of opportunities to grow professionally. Because of its size, there is a real sense of being able to contribute to the development of the institution.

Rebecca Rochon - Senior Lecturer Academic Enhancement

I really enjoy working at Bucks and the highlight for me is the people – students and staff. I’m very lucky in my role as a Faculty Operations Manager to be able to be involved in so many different aspects of the organisation and every day brings new challenges. There is no such thing as a typical day – I could be doing anything; organising an office move, purchasing IT, attending committee meetings and anything and everything in between. But I wouldn’t be able to do this without the support and help of so many different areas and, as such, we’re a great team.

I started working in the gym at Bucks as the Fitness Supervisor in 2014 after spending 4 years working as a personal trainer for a major corporate gym. The difference in culture and work ethic is incredible. Here you are made to feel welcome and your opinion counts.

I work in a fitness team which is very professional and includes people from different backgrounds in fitness where each individual is an important cog in the wheel. The equipment we have is top of the range which is vitally important in an ever evolving industry. Our members are diverse and every day is different, the friendly atmosphere makes working here a pleasure.
