It is good to be able to take ones skills to a university setting. Is there differences in pay and other perks? Kind of really like working in a lab environment so I wonder what skills I could take elsewhere if needed..

I used to work in a university, I left in 2007 when my husband’s job moved abroad. My pay is still about £10,000 below what I was earning
