Our stories

Our staff come from a diverse range of backgrounds and bring with them a wealth of different life experiences.  Their inspiring stories about their career and work-life balance are open and honest and give a real insight into their work and challenges at various career stages.

Support for ECRs

"I am judged on my outputs, not on office attendance, so I can sometimes work from home or incorporate some flexibility into my working." - Dr Tristan Snowsill

Work-Life balance

"I work less than full time, in order to accommodate my responsibilities at work and home, and in general have found this a very positive experience." - Professor Karen Mattick

Mentoring

"My first year at Exeter was amazing but also very challenging.  Fortunately, the Medical Imaging department has a mentoring scheme and I couldn’t have asked for a better mentor." - Liliana Rodrigues

Developing our staff

"The University of Exeter has been highly supportive of my continuing professional development, supporting me to undertake a range of managerial courses." - Jo Shuttleworth

Widening participation

"Exeter University is a stimulating and supportive environment that has helped me develop and professionally stretch myself." - Professor Ian Fussell
