Living and working in Wales

Swansea, Wales’ ‘city by the sea’ and the birthplace of Dylan Thomas, is a lively and vibrant maritime city and regional shopping centre – and home to Wales’ premier University, in a beautiful part of the world.

A stone's throw away, the Victorian resort of Mumbles offers a fantastic array of attractions, including a pier, traditional boutiques, craft shops and ice-cream parlours: Mumbles is known as the Gateway to Gower – Britain’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Gower Peninsula extends west of Mumbles in a succession of stunning coastal and rural sceneries. To the east, the Waterfall Country at Afan and the Vale of Neath are a haven for walkers and bikers alike.

In addition to career progression, we offer a range of benefits including competitive salaries, flexible working and health and wellbeing services.
