Jobs in Dundee: The Best Place to Live in Scotland

Avatar

Dundee has experienced something of a renaissance in recent times. Most notably, the city has been crowned the best place to live in Scotland, owing to a number of factors including culture, property prices and employment rates. It’s another exciting accolade for the City of Discovery, which was also recently named as one of the world’s “must see” destinations.

It’s an amazing achievement for the city, which has worked to build upon its food and drink manufacturing and creative industries. This makes it a very exciting time to be living and working within the city, particularly if you are seeking to gain long-term, meaningful employment.

Working within the Dundee market myself, it’s not hard to see why the city ranks so highly. Not only are the opportunities there to progress your career and work with some of the best teams in the country, there is also plenty of focus on a good work/life balance … Which makes sense in a city that is home to exciting tourist attractions, such as the recently opened V&A.

There are many advantages to working in Dundee, not least because of its strong, historical ties across a number of sectors including journalism, finance, brewing and distilling; markets which continue to thrive to this day, which ties in with the number of highly skilled workers living in the city.

There are also plenty of scenic cycling routes, whereby you can jump on two wheels and head down to Arbroath or St Andrews for some Instagram-worthy views.

So, if you are considering a move to the city for work, it’s not hard to see why. Where else in the world will you find such a mix of history, craft beers and culture? Dundee has moved beyond the original “three Js” – jam, jute and journalism – to become something of a creative hub. There are festivals of literature and science; jazz and horticulture; architecture and theatre.
