What was it like living in Nottingham? Could you tell us a bit about how you found the city as a student?

"Nottingham is fast growing with a lively centre filled with good retail offer, bars and restaurants. There is always something to do and all your friends live close by due to the proximity of student housing to the campus. Nottingham is also less than 2 hours train ride away from London (and most other large cities) which is a big advantage."

"After graduation I immediately moved to London and gained 3 years experience in the retail sector. I had always admired Macaulay Sinclair's work and therefore set a goal to work for them."
