Nottingham’s been voted the third best place to work in the UK!3 min read

According to a new study by the job site Glassdoor, Nottingham’s been voted the third best place in the UK to have a job. We knew we were based here for a reason!

Apparently, we only came behind Cambridge and Milton Keynes in a list that was based on how easy it is to get a job,  affordability of housing, and employee satisfaction. Dr Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor’s chief economist, says Nottingham offers ‘decent salaries and job prospects combined with a lower cost of living.‘ Here, our money goes further; we can save and still have a good quality of life.

Who needs to move to London, ‘ey? We’re quite happy with our Goose Fair mushy peas and sensibly-priced pints… duckeh.
