As a result, Edinburgh remains not only the second largest financial centre
in the UK, but one of Europe’s main hubs and your career will give you the opportunity to develop your own outstanding expertise.
Naturally, we enjoy a great social scene, and you’ll be welcomed into this by your local social committee. We have a great social calendar which you’ll be invited to join and you can take up to 6 days to volunteer in your local community too. Scotland is
