I have been working at Birmingham City University full-time (Less than a year)
Great holidays, good pay, great atmosphere, wonderful colleagues, and generally keeps you busy.
Does have peaks and troughs in workloads.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Birmingham City University (Birmingham, England) in July 2016.
30 minute excel test based in the office where you would be working followed by 30 minute structured interview with three people who each took it in turns to ask a number of questions. All interviewers took notes during the process. At the end there was an opportunity for me to ask questions. The interview was on a Thursday and they said would be making a decision on Monday. It's now Wednesday and I am waiting for the official 'no' - would have been nice to have received a response by now in order to gain feedback on where I didn't meet expectations to help with future job applications and whether it would be worth applying to them again for any future vacancies - this would just help with knowing whether lost out to someone better on the day or just not suitable for them.
