Former Retail and Bar Staff in Lancaster, England

As part-time bar staff there were plenty of events through the year that managers would organise to say thank you. It helped create a good environment and made us feel valued.

Current Senior Postdoctoral Researcher in Lancaster, England

Cons: building and office is shabby and in need of a thorough modernisation. Pros: flexible working hours and office arrangements; managers trust you you to get on with the job without breathing down your neck. Good colleagues. Excellent career prospects. Good professional development offered for free. Staff health support.

It's a typical UK university in terms of benefits package

Current Research Associate in Lancaster, England

Fairly standard compared to other universities, though the option for private dental insurance is more important here given the limited number of NHS dentists in the area. There are interest free loans to help with EU nationals dealing with Brexit uncertainty, but this is fairly standard across many UK universities at the moment. You are treated a little unfairly with slightly reduced leave if you start midway through a month in a year, as you get 2 days for the whole month and nothing for starting part way through a month. Also, fewer days leave in Research Associate position vs Senior Research Position despite doing the same work (and getting paid less!).
