A little bit about the city: Cambridge 

Known as the home for one of the best and oldest universities in the world, Cambridge is thought of as an attractive place to live, thanks to its historic past and its beautiful scenery. With a thriving tech sector, Cambridge is the place to be if you’re interested in the newest and most exciting tech. As it’s only 50 minutes to central London, Cambridge is a great place to be if you want to pop to the capital to explore. As for getting around the city itself, cycling is a commonly favoured method for locals. According to the council, around a quarter of the residents here choose to cycle on their daily commute, this is made easy by the flat ground and the miles and miles of bike paths spanning the city! 

Years of experience and salary levels are shown purely as a guide. We will only consider applications from candidates that can demonstrate the skills or experience required for the role.

Whilst we would love to respond to every application due to the high numbers we receive we cannot guarantee this.
