Living in Cambridge

Living and Working in Cambridge

Cambridge is a quite unique and beautiful city that is famous throughout the world. It boasts an enviable array of colleges and the university is globally acclaimed.
Outside of work it has fantastic shopping facilities, plenty of wonderful restaurants as well as a great nightlife.

This university town is perfectly situated just 50 miles north of London and the transport links into the capital are excellent with a number of direct trains to both Kings Cross and Liverpool Street.

As well as the obvious university presence, Cambridge is home to some companies and organisations who are leaders in their fields of expertise.


The Cambridge Science Park and Cambridge Business Park are both full of hi-technology and forward thinking organisations and on the outskirts of the city, you will find Vision Park (home to Crem Recruitment) and Granta Park amongst many others. Addenbrookes hospital is another major employer and, as seems to be the case with all things Cambridge, it leads the way globally in many aspects of what they do.

Some huge names in the business world have their headquarters in Cambridge, companies that often have openings and are looking for the best talent around.
Outside of work, you will never be short of something to do in Cambridge. The stunning architecture and buildings are steeped in history so just a walk around town can lead to a very enjoyable afternoon. You can grab a bargain at the local market and in the summer months, many locals take to the river and go punting.

The Cambridge Corn Exchange and The Junction both regularly host household names in music, comedy and other entertainment. The Cambridge Arts Theatre also makes for a memorable occasion.

Other places of interest include the nearby Wimpole Hall, The Imperial War Museum in Duxford and the Botanic Gardens.

For the more energetic, Cambridge has plenty of gyms; sports centres and other activities to take part in. Cambridge United and Cambridge City are the two predominant football teams and regularly play in front of several thousand people each week.

Annual events include the Cambridge Folk Festival, The Strawberry Fair and the city comes alive during the annual University boat race.

It is fair to say, Cambridge is not a cheap place to live but surrounding towns and villages are easily accessible and many people are based here as they tend to be slightly cheaper. Haverhill, Saffron Walden, Linton, Sawston, Newmarket, Ely, St Ives, Huntingdon and Royston are all very commutable into Cambridge.

Overall, Crem Recruitment are extremely proud to be part of such a beautiful and historic city and we would highly recommend it as a place to live, work or visit.
