Work-life balance


Software Developer in London, Greater London
on 18 May 2020
Lovely People with Unfortunate Pay
I truly loved my time at The National Archives - the team I worked with had some of the hardest workers and positive people that I have met in my time working. Unfortunately I felt I had to leave. This was due to my pay not reflecting the high-cost location of nearby London, nor a pay-rise for effectively being promoted. In addition, some of the ideas held by those who have been in the business for a long time have effectively stagnated, so it's particularly difficult to incite any change in the business. The good people did outweight this for me, but I recognise it isn't for everyone!
Archive Supervisor and Assistant in Kew, London

first job in the heritage sector
This was a full time position and my first in the heritage sector. This was a target of mine as it would give me more job satisfaction as I have a passion for history. however some of the staff were unfriendly and some weeks you worked six days in a row.

It is a great place to work
Have learnt a lot and been exposed to a variety of procurement exercises. The culture here is very friendly and I have learnt a lot in a short space of time. It is a cultural destination and I enjoy the work immensely
Manager in Richmond upon Thames, Greater London

Love working here
Great atmosphere, nice colleagues, excellent facilities, including free museum and parking. Wellbeing is good and we hold an annual wellbeing day for staff every spring. Work areas are clean and clear of clutter and there are kitchens on every floor to make tea and lunch etc. As a relatively new manager, I feel things could be improved such as more joined up cross department working and better management of workloads within teams. In house recruitment guidance is very limited which is a sentiment expressed across the organisation. Cleaners don’t seem to clean desks etc as regularly as other offices I have worked in.

Lovely place to work
I have been working here for over 5 years in a strategic and leadership position. I have found colleagues to be very friendly, highly qualified and very engaged in what they do. The archives are situated in a beautiful estate with lakes, swans and lots or horticulture. I feel very valued as a member of staff and the salaries and benefits are good too. Free parking and close proximity to London makes it even more appealing. Great free museum and bookshop onsite with a good coffee bar.
