Milton Keynes is a multicultural city, having been established in 1967 and is situated in the county of Buckinghamshire. It is around fifty miles from London so therefore offers excellent rail and road connections. The nearest airport is London Luton Airport which is less than twenty miles away and offers flights to over 145 destinations. Milton Keynes is the largest settlement in Buckinghamshire with a large and expanding population. It is a diverse city with almost one hundred languages being spoken here.

Modern Milton Keynes has been named as one of the fastest growing places in the United Kingdom and has long held a continuous strong attraction for both business and opportunity. A recent report shows that Milton Keynes has been identified as one of the best places in the UK for new technology and future based businesses. Due to its economic popularity, robust industries which tend to thrive and expand here include technology and IT, professional services, logistics and distribution, retail and hospitality, finance and business services, manufacturing, healthcare, creative and education.

The city is home to many multinational companies as well as a number of startups and small businesses. It boasts an outstanding reputation worldwide for being one of the United Kingdom’s leading distribution hubs and being in such close proximity to the capital, it enjoys an advantageous access to the opportunities that this presents. There are several business parks and industrial estates which are home to many businesses in various sectors.

Although the city does not yet have its own residential university, there are developing plans for this but the city is home to both the Open University and Cranfield University - an internationally renowned postgraduate and specialist establishment which is around seven miles from the city centre.

There is a lot more to Milton Keynes than its many roundabouts you may have heard about! Milton Keynes is a diverse, creative and dynamic place to be.The city embraces its unique heritage yet also very much focuses on its future potential whilst supporting and recognising the successes of the present.

You would be mistaken in presuming that Milton Keynes is predominantly an urban area. There are around six thousand acres of parkland, woodland, rivers and lakes with millions of trees with a fifth of the city being open space. In fact, it has far more green spaces than any other extended urban area in the country. It also has several sites of special scientific interest as well as almost thirty conservation areas.

Bletchley Park is situated here and is a very popular and interesting attraction as it was once a top secret home to World War Two Code Breakers and it is set in stunning grounds. Visit Willen Lake for its activities and watersports or enjoy a peaceful stroll around Salcey Forest.

Milton Keynes is full of experiences, entertainment and excitement with an abundance of galleries, art, theatre, music, sculptures, shopping and eating out. There are over two hundred works of public art such as the concrete cows, consisting of three cleverly created cows and three calves.The football stadium - Stadium MK was opened in 2007 and there are a host of other sporting inspired venues and events to be enjoyed.

Milton Keynes is an excellent choice for those who value a good quality of life, excellent job

opportunities and a thriving cultural scene in a diverse and inclusive environment.

The next event being hosted by the UK Careers Fair will be held on February 7th between 10am - 2pm. The venue is the Leonardo Hotel, MK9 2HP which is situated in the heart of the town, only minutes from Central Rail Station and a main bus route with off site parking being available nearby.
