Living & Working in Dundee

Dundee's people are its greatest asset. The city is cosmopolitan in outlook and combines and celebrates many different cultures. Priding itself on its warm and friendly welcome to visitors, Dundee is a university city and is home to thousands of students and academics from all over the world, with more students per head of population than any other Scottish city.

The city has grown in importance as a regional centre, and has a population of more than 300,000 people within its 30-minute drive time catchment area. With many people attracted to the city to work, rest and play, Dundee is a bustling centre during the day and lively location at night.

Dundee's workforce is well educated, highly skilled and flexible having adapted successfully to a range of modern industrial sectors.

While Dundee's house prices have been rising over the last few years, the average price of a house remains around one quarter of that in London and well below that of Scotland's three other major cities.

Demand for high quality housing on offer in popular hot spots such as the West End and Broughty Ferry is high while the rest of the city offers a range of options including trendy apartments in converted jute mills and high quality executive houses.

‌'Dundee's setting is probably more extraordinary than any other city in the UK. It is about as ideal as any setting could be.' - Stephen Fry, Actor.
