Probably best known for its beautiful university - which is more than 800 years old - Cambridge is a town in East Anglia. Situated on the River Cam, approximately 50 miles north of London, it offers a variety of options for those seeking opportunities, particularly in the software and bioscience sectors.
The history of Cambridge is a long one and evidence suggests that people have been living in the region for over 3,500 years.
Throughout the Roman and Medieval periods, it was a small but prosperous market town with a busy trade route along the river. In 1284, Pembroke College was founded, the first part of what would later become the world-famous university.
During the 19th century, the city expanded due to a combination of improvements in agricultural production, as well as the railway's arrival in 1845, which encouraged the growth of heavy industry.
Much of the modern economy of Cambridge is linked to the university, and a number of science parks are situated on the outskirts of the city, many with close ties to the institution.
Cambridge Science Park, for example, is owned by Trinity College and is the oldest of its kind in Europe. It is home more than 100 companies in sectors including bio-medical, telecoms, computing, energy, environmental and industrial technology.
Just some of the top companies with offices or other facilities in Cambridge include Microsoft, Sinclair, Marshall Aerospace and Autonomy Corporation.
