    StarStarStarStarStar Current Research Associate in London, England

    The pension and holiday entitlement are the best things (for researchers - may differ across sectors within the university). Holiday entitlement is 27 days per year plus public holidays plus university closure days - a week at Easter, around a week at Christmas and sometimes extra days. The salary may not be the best but the employer pension contribution is 18%. The other benefit is a huge amount of training available, including excellent careers advice.

    Fantastic holidays - annual leave + Uni closure days meant about 42 days off per year. Lots of professional development opportunities, training, and seminars staff were encouraged to attend.
