Living in Edinburgh

So, what exactly makes Edinburgh a fantastic place to live and work in?

Attractions and events

The city is jam-packed with things to see and do outside of work. Festivals, museums, galleries, and live music venues all make Edinburgh such a cultural gem. Read more on the This is Edinburgh website. 

Keeping fit in Edinburgh is easy thanks to the excellent facilities on offer - take a look at the Edinburgh Leisure website for inspiration. 

Getting around

The city is investing hugely in developing QuietRoutes - walking and cycling routes across the city so anyone can enjoy the benefits of safer and healthier ways to get around.

If you prefer public transport, then Edinburgh has one of the best transport networks in the country, with Lothian Buses and Edinburgh Trams offering round the clock transport. One of the benefits on offer when you join us, is help with the upfront cost of a season ticket in the form of a Season Ticket Salary Advance.
