What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
The casual, relaxed atmosphere to working. Everyone at the company cares about everyone else, and the people are the priority not the work.
I honestly don't have anything I dislike about the job at this point, the only minor thing for me is the location of the office.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £25,000 - £27,000
Current salary: £25,000 - £27,000
What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Make sure to appear well rounded, the environment in the office is a friendly and casual one. We much prefer to take someone who has hobbies and does things outside of their academic life than someone who has forsaken their personal/social life purely to focus on academia.
Do you have any interview tips?
Same as the application, put yourself across as a rounded person. Don't worry about saying "I don't know" to a question or two, they care less that you know all the answers and more about the way you think.
