The V&A Museum of Design recently opened in Dundee and is an international centre of design and the centre piece of Dundee's innovative new waterfront development. This, along with Tayside's great links to all other major cities in Scotland, means the area can offer employees plenty of choice when it comes to both accommodation and opportunities of things to do in the pursuit of the right work-life balance.

Come join our friendly team and experience living and working in one of the most beautiful areas of Scotland.
