- Michael Page recruitment in Cambridge
Cambridge is perhaps best known for its university, considered one of the best in the UK, if not the world. The University of Cambridge was founded in the early 1200s, making it over 800 years old. It is home to Cavendish Laboratory, Addenbrooke's Hospital, King's College Chapel and Cambridge University Library, among many more local landmarks and notable architectural sights.
Michael Page offer Cambridge recruitment services to put highly skilled local residents into jobs that offer the best match for their abilities. We work for candidates and clients alike. Cambridge itself has very high demand for labour, making it even more important for employers to attract the top talent available in the competitive local market. Our experts focus on several key disciplines, including finance, marketing, legal, human resources and life sciences, but can recruit to many other roles beyond those areas.
Cambridge is regarded as one of the UK's most beautiful cities. Its flat landscape has led to very high usage of bicycles for commuting, among students and workers alike. The area around the city is nicknamed ‘Silicon Fen’ in honour of the science and technology businesses based there. Cambridge Science Park, among the largest in Europe, is owned by the university's Trinity College, and the UK offices of Microsoft Research are located in West Cambridge.
The medieval Latin name for the city, Cantabrigia, is sometimes used by local sports teams. There is a Cantabrigian Rugby Club and Cantabrigian Rowing Club. A shortened form of the word is also the origin of the nickname 'Tab' which is used to refer to students of the university. Whether you are a graduate seeking Cambridge jobs in your chosen field, or a local business looking to hire the best person for your vacancy, the expert team at Michael Page can help.
