A little bit about the city: LA

Los Angeles is spread out a lot compared to other cities, to the point where walking anywhere is pretty uncommon! LA County is home to 88 cities including Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and West Hollywood – and although they operate independently of LA, they are still a part of the metropolis. Los Angeles’ freeway system is daunting and infamously hectic. Despite this, most LA dwellers still use their own cars to get around, although other popular options include ordering a Lyft or an Uber (ride-share apps). One thing LA is rightly famous for is their climate. With sun near to 365 days a year and an average of 75 degrees Fahrenheit every year for the past 30 years, the weather here is near on idyllic!

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