What are the Best and Worst things about your job?


The nature of the work is very interesting and rewarding. The work/life balance (flexible working) is also brilliant.


The pay - for the work we do, we have a low salary compared to academia and industry.

What is the annual salary for this role?

Starting salary: £25,000 - £27,000

Current salary: £27,000 - £29,000

What hours do you actually work, on average?

Start: 08:00

Finish: 17:00

Do you have any interview tips?

Make sure you look up about the company, and specifically the team/group you are applying into. I have sat on interview panels and candidates have said that they couldn't find any information because the work we do is secret....this isn't true and we have published a number of papers in
scientific literature. Shows a lack of homework/research!
