Mark McClemont, Senior Technician
I have been at Reading since 1987; I started out as a Lab Technician and in the early '90s I got the opportunity to become a glassblower.
I'm the only glassblower on campus. I design, make, modify and repair scientific laboratory glassware for both teaching and research for the School of Chemistry, Food and Pharmacy and other University departments, as well as outside companies.
Eleanor Dickey, Professor of Classics
I really enjoy working at Reading. I like that we are all friends with each other in the Department of Classics; there is a lot of positive interaction. We help each other out and really work together to make our programme something that is as good as possible for students.

When I first joined Henley Business School as a temp, I was struck by just how friendly everyone in the University was. Now, a permanent member of staff and five years on, I still feel the same way.
The environment with its green spaces is a great place to work. We have a wide diversity of wildlife on campus and a wander round the lake at lunch certainly helps to clear the mind and relax.
Martin Ridley, Receptionist and Events Coordinator
We get a lot of enquiries at Henley Business School, and in my role I get to speak to and meet new people pretty much all the time. I do some photography for the department as well, including events. I've been here a year and it's quite varied; no two days are the same.
I also own a martial arts club, All Abilities Martial Art. It's for everyone, any ability, we're keen to emphasise it's inclusive. We practice Aiki-JuJitsu, which is not sport-based but focused on self-defence.
