Final Interview

Your Leicester

Located in Leicester, the Head Office campus is in the heart of the UK. The city has so much to offer; great sport, rich history, incredible shopping and plenty of bars and restaurant. Being bang smack in the middle of the country means travelling to and from the area is easy, whether it be by car, train or even a plane.

 

Leicestershire has grown a lot over the past years. It’s got it all; a vibrant city that is surround by vast and rich countryside, so you get the best of both worlds. In the city there’s always something to do, cinema, state of the art shopping centre, the famous curve theatre, the historical Richard III site and two top sporting teams who have international recognition. Add to it a constant stream of events, festivals and fun in and around the city you can’t go wrong.

 

If that wasn’t enough, the house and rental prices are well below the UK average too! So you’ll be able to live and enjoy everything Leicester has to offer.
