13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

I was lucky enough to live with family in Manchester. Being a large city Manchester was more expensive but our salary reflected this.

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

I didn't get a chance as much as I would have liked to go out in the evenings - work was very tiring and involved quite a bit of travel away from Manchester.

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

There was a company sports day whilst we were there. Also departmental/office socials.
