Glasgow has everything you’d want in a city, the architecture of the city is beautiful, the people are friendly and there is something to please everyone. In July and August 2014, Glasgow hosted the 2014 Commonwealth Games, welcoming millions of visitors into the city for a spectacular sporting event. The Botanical Gardens, Glasgow Cathedral and various art galleries are great to visit in the day time, and in the evening, there are lots of concert halls, bars, restaurants and clubs to pick from. If you want to get involved in team sports, some options are 5-a-side football at the Powerleague, Townhead, various rugby & hockey clubs located around the city and there’s even a golf club beside the NS&I offices.
Where is Glasgow?
Glasgow is west central Scotland, and a hugely popular city, closely located and easily commutable from Edinburgh, and of course easy access to the Islands and Highlands of Scotland.
Are there any other grads working from this office?
There are a few grads working at this site, as well apprentices. They are quite a small team, but meet up with grads from our Edinburgh office for drinks and work events.
Is it easy to travel and park?
The nearest train station is Priesthill & Darnley or Nitshill Station. The offices are located beside the M77 and therefore are accessible by car from all areas of Glasgow. It is easy to park with lots of space in the car parks and if you don’t drive, there are buses from town which run from Buchanan Bus Station too.
If I move to the area, where are the best places to live?
Living in the southside, west end or centre of Glasgow is advisable, as from there the building is accessible through various forms of transport. There is a good mix of new and old style buildings.
What are the options for lunch?
There is an onsite cafeteria which sells hot and cold food, alongside newspapers and other items.
Vending machines for snacks are also available around the building. Silverburn Shopping centre is a 5 minute walk away and there are a number of restaurants located there. There is also a 24 hour Tesco and a Morrisons in the surrounding area.
