  • There were all sorts of events you could join sports /charity and internal fun events you could do yourself they always welcomed new ideas and they like to keep things fun and exciting so internal and external events were always encouraged and welcomed always fun to do and the managers joined to

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • I would say it was manageable for a student as there so many local eating places and the company had a food cafe and a lunch area you could bring your own food and warm it up and once a week they had a employee food share day we would bring food on Friday. (optional if your a bad cook)

    5/5

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

    5/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • ALWAYS! they kept us busy and who wouldn't love to be having fun at work and outside work with fun people that you actually get on with the company is a big advocate for being mentally healthy everything was very open and inviting anyone could join the emails would come through and you could go !
