Regular and reliable public transport in the area means that Cambridge is easily commutable from surrounding villages and the beautiful town of Ely.
Shopping Culture and Nightlife
For all of the prestige of its colleges, shopping in Cambridge is not as expensive as you might imagine. You’ll find all of the usual coffee chains and restaurants, alongside a massive variety of independent cafes and shops selling everything from books and kitchenware to pastries, chocolate and tailored suits.
Internationally famous shops all fit nicely into the surroundings of Cambridge and its Grand Arcade and your staff discount will take a generous slice out of your bill in restaurants all over town.
When the evening comes, you can try out one of Cambridge’s three main cinemas or take in one of many regular theatre shows at venues including the ADC and Anglia Ruskin’s Mumford theatre.
Then, when summer comes around you could go along to one of Cambridge’s unique festivals, like the famous Strawberry Fair.
Cycle or catch the bus into town after your shift or at the weekend on almost any evening and you will see a whole world of students passing between King’s, Queens’ and Trinity Hall to name a few.

If all of that cycling isn’t quite enough, you’ll find access to everything from tennis to swimming is right on your new doorstep. The Frank Lee Centre is CUH’s very own leisure and fitness centre, with a gym, swimming pool, tennis courts and exercise classes run by friendly trainers. Go for a jog around any of Cambridge’s many greens and open spaces including Jesus Green, Parker’s Piece and Christ’s Pieces. Punting, too, is just as popular as you might imagine. You can hire your own punt, or take a chauffeured trip up towards the village of Grantchester.
The city of Cambridge is renowned for its famous, world-class schools and colleges – 31 make up the University of Cambridge. This reputation extends to the wide range of state schools, as well, with plenty of choice for primary, secondary and college education wherever you live.
Why choose to work in CUH?
We were proud to be named top trust in the Midlands and East Anglia by the health research organisation Dr Foster. The award, of which there were only four across the UK, was based on our mortality ratio and patient survey results, and demonstrates that we are one of the safest hospitals in the NHS.
Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) is one of the largest and best known hospitals in the country. The ‘local’ hospital for our community, CUH is also a leading national centre for specialist treatment; a government-designated comprehensive biomedical research centre; one of only five academic health science centres in the UK, and a university teaching hospital with a worldwide reputation. Building on these different elements, CUH’s vision is to be one of the best academic healthcare organisations in the world.
Our priorities focus on a quality service which is all about people – patients, staff and partners. Our values – kind, safe and excellent – are at the heart of patient care, defining the way we work and behave.
You’ll get training and development in this friendly and dynamic organisation which seeks to innovate and strives for excellence in delivering first-class patient care. You’ll also benefit from childcare facilities, flexible working and a final salary pension scheme. Cambridge is a great place to live with good schools, lots of housing developments, new shopping, sports and leisure facilities … and it’s only 45 minutes away from London.
Our staff make this hospital what it is. Everyone’s contribution is valued and acknowledged – every single one of our staff has a part in making the team at CUH the best – doctors, porters, nurses, lab technicians, pharmacists, carpenters, healthcare assistants, secretaries … CUH aims to support you in your working life. We have a range of schemes to help you achieve a healthy work-life balance – flexible working, special leave arrangements, elder care, childcare facilities, and holiday play schemes.
We believe that investing in staff development and training not only develops the individual’s personal potential, but helps achieve excellence in patient care. The Trust is committed to providing a range of different programmes for staff to access, depending on their learning preferences and needs. We undertake external development programmes as well as providing a comprehensive range of in-house training through our learning centre. We have also developed an innovative suite of bespoke leadership and management development opportunities designed to support the Trust’s aim of putting the patient and the patient experience at the heart of everything we do.
We have modern, purpose-built and well-equipped facilities to work, learn and play with new buildings and facilities being planned and built. In the Frank Lee Centre, we have probably the best sports and social facilities in a UK hospital – just for our staff and right on-site. You can get fit with circuits, relax with some yoga, take a swim, play some snooker … have a drink with friends. Our shopping concourse has a comprehensive range of services: including clothes and gift shops, a supermarket, restaurants and cafes, bank, travel agent, hairdresser, solicitor, etc.
