    I have been working at University of London (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work, nice colleagues, plenty of opportunity to develop transferable skills, opportunities to network and progress within academia in the long run.

    Cons

    The salary paid is simply not enough to live on in London in the 21st century, and you'll find yourself needing to do extra work on the side. Also, senior management are obsessed with targets and have no real interest in making sure that research is carried out to a high standard.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of London in June 2014.

    Interview

    Lengthy online application process that included providing detailed answers to three skills-based questions specific to the role. Was invited for an interview within a week of the closing date that included preparing and delivering a presentation to three staff and departmental head. Interview was due to last an hour, but lasted just thirty minutes. Panel questions mostly consisted of those asked for in the original online application, requiring repeat of answers that had already been detailed thoroughly in the online application. Rejection followed day after interview. Feedback provided, but not something that could be absorbed beyond gaining niche skills only of relevance to that role and not of general use in wider industry.
