Very relaxed atmosphere. Am allowed to take holiday whenever needed (as long as good research progress is made). Lots of funding to go abroad for conferences.
The city does not have much to offer. It is lively but not pleasantly vivid and vibrant. I would stay for a long term.
good pension, you can get £50 membership at the gym, £1 bus fare on the bristol road. can get an NUS card too
University of Birmingham provides similar job package like other universities in UK. It gives 18% in total for the pension.
Good pension scheme; But poor salary
The pension scheme was good, and time off easy to take if needed.
Holidays during Christmas and Easter break
Best - As a student and young person, you get a very high wage compared to other jobs. Worst - No performance based bonuses.
pension, annual leave, one day workshops for different subject trainings enhancing your skills for your current job, aid for your daily travel to office, spectacles, driving classes, eye tests with their suggested centers.
As a part-time zero hours contract worker, I was not part of the pension schemes or other perks offered by the university and therefore cannot comment on that.
