Why Aberdeenshire?

From Mountain to Sea, the very best of Scotland!

Pennan CoastWe know making a move in your career isn’t just getting a new job. It’s about making more of life. It’s about the importance of balance between professional and personal life; delivering the best outcomes for you and your family.

So imagine getting ready for your first day, whilst walking a sun soaked stretch of sand. Or figuring out your lesson plan, in the middle of a forest. Well, in Aberdeenshire you can do just that. Because no matter where you’re placed, you’re never going to be far from open country or the North East coastline. Even if you choose to live in the heart of the city, you’ll find Aberdeen beach less than half a mile from the centre, giving you a glorious two-mile stretch of golden sand, lined by a beautiful esplanade.
