I've seen a job advertised with a pay scale of £33k to £44k. I'm used to the private sector where I'd expect to try to persuade the interviewer to offer me pay at the top end of the scale. A friend who works in the NHS says that isn't how things work in the NHS and there a new entrant to the NHS would automatically start on £33k regardless of prior experience.

Does anyone know how it works at Cambridge University? I've looked on their website and it isn't clear (but if I had to guess it looks like they follow the NHS model.)

I don't know but I don't see any reason why it would follow the model described (and is your friend in NHS management to know that?)

If it's a non-academic position, if your experience is highly relevant you should be paid at the higher end, I would think.

Thanks for your post.
My friend has a senior position in the HR department of a local hospital.
