Benefits of working for us

Our location

Slough is one of the easiest places to get to in the country.

Two motorways (M4 and M40), a mainline railway station with direct routes to Paddington to the east and Wales and the West Country to the west.

Within Slough, there are bus routes across the area and cycling is easy on our flat streets.

Getting to Heathrow is a breeze, the airport is a mere five miles away. 

More information about Slough is available at About Slough.
