    I worked at University of Newcastle (UK) full-time (More than a year)


    Excellent holiday time, closure between Christmas and New Year, tuition perks, pension, lots of cross-university interaction, interaction with students.


    I think it really depends on where you work--my unit in particular we were not treated the same as other units in our larger directorate--more supervision, less autonomy. My work-life balance was skewed very work-heavy, and ultimately is why I left the university.I think this was more unique to the Central Services than in the different faculties and schools.

    Advice to Management

    Unless your employees give you a reason not to, trust them! We were all hired because we are competent professionals, and after a trial period it would be great to just let us run with things (supportively of course!)

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at University of Newcastle (UK) (Newcastle upon Tyne, England (UK)) in February 2017.


    Whole process took 4 weeks. A simple non-technical 30 min interview. Had to bring example of relevant work, and discuss my ideas regarding the current state of the project and areas of improvement (all in a non-technical context). Useful feedback provided after the interview.
