Why Norwich?

In Norwich an amazing 77% of people say they love their job.   Although less than 2 hours from London and serviced by excellent transport links, Norwich is one of few UK cities that still retain a strong local identity and with that a strong sense of community – people walk down the street and say hello to each other, baristas remember our coffee order, you get to know about interesting local projects.

This strong sense of self along with excellent shopping, eating out, affordable house prices and excellent schooling is why Norwich has been ranked by the Guardian as the best city to work in.

Don’t take our word for it – Rheumatology Service Director, Tarnya Marshall chose to accept the role of consultant at NNUH after experiencing Norwich hospitality first hand.

“This is a very busy but very friendly hospital and Norwich is a beautiful bustling city. I chose to work in Norwich because of the friendly people and great staff and would recommend living here to anyone. Not only do we have a lovely city, but beautiful beaches and countryside too.”.
