I worked at University of Manchester full-time (More than a year)
Large employer, so great work-life help, e.g. relaxation and sports sessions. Lots of opportunities for training if you're on the main campus (see below). Fairly well-paid. Generally a good place to work.
However, if you're based in an off-site team (not on the main campus), then you are extremely isolated. No time was made available for us to go onto the main campus to take part in the sessions or training and nobody from main campus every bothered to offer to come over to us.
Also, very little opportunity for promotion in the area I was in. Be aware that you may have to move departments in order to progress, as people tend to stay in the same job for a long time and block the path upwards for other people.
Advice to Management
Involve off-site teams more in your training and programmes, please!
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Manchester (Manchester, England (UK)) in January-2018.
The process took around two weeks from application to interview. They let applicants know whether they had been successful within a few days. I was interviews by two people, one asking questions and one taking notes. It lasted around 30 minutes and seemed quite informal.
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
