    I have been working at University of Kent full-time

    Pros

    Well aware of employment law;
    Well resourced.

    Cons

    Not very good pay for support staff

    Advice to Management

    Support staff is not less important or much less contributer than lectures​, so would be beneficial if this reflects on the payscales.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Kent (Canterbury, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Interview involved a presentation to the full department, followed by questions, and then lunch, followed by an hour with the interview panel. Questions focused on my research, my teaching experience, my plans for publication. Everyone was very civilised and friendly - had one or two quite sharp questions after my presentation but not in the interview itself. You get a chance to meet the other candidates too, at lunch, so that's a bit strange - everyone being super-friendly but thinking 'am I more or less likely to get the job than this person?'
