About the area

If you are local, you might have heard of Oldham, but if not, you may not know much about the town. Oldham is the gateway to Manchester City Centre, one of the most vibrant cities in the country, well known for its nightlife, entertainment and shopping. You can travel from Manchester to Oldham by train, tram, bus or car in well under 30 minutes. As well as the bright lights of Manchester, the local area is well known for its outstanding natural beauty. As well as being the gateway to Manchester, we’re also the gateway to the Pennines. Saddleworth Moor, Tandle Hill country park and Daisy Nook are on our door step. Accommodation is also readily available at some very competitive prices. Manchester City Centre has an abundance of high-quality apartments, all a stone’s throw from the amazing night life.

Whether you are relocating or not, we would like to offer you a recruitment and retention payment. We can discuss a level that will work for you whilst you are on interview.
