Working in Ipswich provides you with an amazing team, clients, career opportunities and a great way of life. The town was voted the 7th most desirable place to live and work in England and has been rated as the 3rd happiest place to live in the UK – a perfect place to start your career with Willis Towers Watson. What’s more – the Willis Building in Ipswich is a famous landmark with a rich history and open days where tourists can visit.
When you’re not working, you can experience the culture with your friends and colleagues by visiting prominent museums, galleries, and the Ipswich Arts Festival, a free celebration of the arts in the famous Christchurch Park.
If you decide to go to Ipswich, we recommend you go to the waterfront, historically the most important waterfront in the UK, and soak up the picturesque setting whilst eating or drinking at one of the quaint sea-side pubs or restaurants.

On top of this, you’ll be a part of a town that’s renowned for its beauty and historical significance.
Cambridge is well-known for its thriving economy and strength in business. Here, you will work in a great environment whilst also taking advantage of the many shops, both high street and independent, restaurants, tranquil river, and the famous university. If you want to apply to our tech streams, then Cambridge is the perfect place – it’s been coined as another Silicon Valley.
Our most recommended activities in Cambridge are: to visit Market Square for some vintage gems or to go punting on the River Cam (when the weather allows it!).
First of all, Leeds is not only the third biggest city in the UK, it’s also the fastest growing, estimated to grow by 21% over the next 10 years. Secondly, the economy of Leeds is worth nearly £64 billion, so this is the ideal place to launch your successful career with us.
If you’re looking for a big city lifestyle with affordable prices, housing and a reasonable commute to and from work, Leeds is the place for you. Also, finance is an integral sector in this town, so you can do important work in a thriving environment.
Enjoy a great work-life balance by shopping in the rustic arcades, taking a walk around Roundhay Park, or immersing yourself in the culture of the vibrant Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen.

In Willis Towers Watson’s Birmingham office, you can immerse yourself in the second-largest city in the UK and the social, cultural and financial centre of the East and West Midlands. Here you can experience the big city life of London without the traffic or train cancellations – despite having one of the UK’s largest populations, Birmingham has the least congestion for public transport.
Birmingham has everything you need: amazing venues for music and entertainment, such as the Hippodrome, numerous shopping centres and an array of restaurants to suit all tastes. We strongly recommend that you take a walk through the beautiful Botanical Gardens and, if you’re hungry, eat at one of their many Michelin-starred restaurants – Birmingham has more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other city outside the capital.
