How do you think your PhD is regarded by your colleagues and your employer?
Colleagues and employer – well it definitely helped me get this job um rightly or wrongly. Boarding schools, independent schools like titles, they like to print in their sort of um term books, so I certainly think that gave me a big advantage in getting this job.
Do you feel that your colleagues have any expectations of you?
I think they expect me to give a few more seminars than I do because I can't stand … once I finished my PhD, that very much was it in my eyes um and I think there is a slight 'perhaps you should be doing a bit more research in the holidays and stuff' but I'm just not personally interested in doing that, but that's the only slight negativity.
