People here already know it, but now Cambridge has been confirmed as the top place to work in the country, according to a new study carried out by employment site Glassdoor.
Judging against criteria including how easy it is to get a job (hiring opportunity), how affordable it is to live there (cost of living), and how satisfied employees are working there (job satisfaction), Cambridge – which scored 4.1 – narrowly beat Milton Keynes (4), with Nottingham (also at 4) running a close third. Peterborough came fifth in the list.
Cambridge was considered a prime spot because of its successful cluster of high tech companies, while the emergence of some of the growing industrial cities in the North meant London was outside the top 20 of this year’s list.

Interesting experience today in the Norfolk region, one of the most popular regions for summer vacation. No way to get from our camping to the nearby beach by bike with a kids trailer than on a narrow A-road, where cars go 100kmh. Thanks, but no. Wonder what the UK government is doing for its people to have a proper infrastructure to support wellbeing and ultimately healthy people and less burden for the NHS system. BIG question mark!!! Other countries seem to have moved on since the last century. Maybe not all is wrong about the Scandinavian / Northern European model. And these countries seem to be able to do this while in the EU. Probably then not the fault of the EU. Something to think about.
