    I have been working at Natural History Museum (UK) full-time


    great place to work because of the work; adaptable and generally supportive employer; unique for researchers and natural history scientist; one of the foremost collections with generally excellent facilities


    central London location requires commuting in line with salaries/level; overall institutional funding model means low on the pecking chain for Government funding; as a research organisation it constantly needs to remind funders and public of the importance of its collections, science and outputs; a series of reduced budgets and pay freezes needs addressing

    Advice to Management

    measure salaries appropriately across sectors - you strive to do this but important to remain ahead of the game; low salaries are difficult to justify for some areas requiring specialist expertise

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Natural History Museum (UK) (London, England) in November 2016.


    The process took around a week. I was interview by a panel of 3 people from the department that were very friendly. They had a set of prepared questions covering different aspects of the job-related skills. Make sure that you know the requirements posted in the job description, as they really focus on them and your personal characteristics. I really enjoyed the process, even though I wasn't chosen.
