Working at NIAB

Cambridge backs Our headquarters are situated about a mile from the historic and cultural centre of Cambridge. The city has a diverse range of restaurants and pubs, unique shops and markets and, of course, the Cambridge colleges. Schools and sixth-form colleges in the area are highly regarded. In addition to the usual leisure activities, Cambridge offers a superlative programme of theatrical, musical and artistic events rarely matched outside London. The Cambridge Commons provide a swathe of open, green spaces at the heart of the city, through which winds the river Cam with its age old tradition of punting.

The City is well served with a network of Park and Ride schemes and, with its flat terrain, bicycles are a popular, healthy and cheap mode of transport. Cambridge is well-connected to the major road routes and central London is only a 50 minute train journey away. London Stansted airport is also accessed easily. The cathedral city of Ely is close by and the Norfolk Broads and coast make popular weekend destinations.
