With its rich cultural offerings, excellent nightlife, and world class retail, Edinburgh is an excellent place to both work and live. For any business looking to expand or newly establish themselves in the city, Edinburgh offers a well-educated workforce with around two thirds being degree educated, and six universities in the city alone providing an excellent local talent pool.
Edinburgh is the greenest city on the UK, boasting 112 parks, and is a UNESCO World Heritage site with over 75% of its buildings listed. This makes Edinburgh an attractive and welcoming place to work, with a vast array of cultural, entertainment and retail opportunities – from the designer shops of St Andrews Square to the bustling Princes Street.
