    I have been working at University of Surrey full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lovely campus, wonderful environment, good pay and development potential

    Cons

    Only really the parking situation, which is dire!

    Advice to Management

    Please be bolder and more decisive when tackling thorny issues and don't be afraid to recognise when departments and processes need root and branch review/change.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Surrey (Guildford, England) in February 2017.

    Interview

    A competency based interview with a couple of people from the team. They asked basic questions which were all around the role and the job description. They didn't try to find out anything about me compared to other places - i think the process could be improved and less public-sector textbook.
