A new feature for our blog, we’ve put together a series of guides to living and working in the towns and cities where our branches are based. Written by people with the lowdown on all things local, these will be a must-read if you’re considering relocating. First up is our head office location of Lincoln.
Lincoln is most famous for its historic ‘uphill’ quarter. Sitting atop the rather aptly named ‘Steep Hill’, the Cathedral was once the tallest building in the world, and the castle holds one of four original copies of the Magna Carta. In the uphill and Bailgate areas, there’s plenty of independent cafes, pubs and restaurants to try; once you’ve finished exploring the cobbled streets.
Head down Steep Hill to Lincoln’s High Street and St Marks areas, where you can find many big brand shops along with independent retailers. Nightlife in Lincoln has been much improved since the arrival of the University, with a wide range of bars and clubs to choose from.
Lincoln is currently seeing wide-scale development with a new transport hub, and the current regeneration of the ‘Cornhill Quarter’ in the City Centre.
A visit to Lincoln’s famous annual Christmas Market is a must; held over the first weekend in December, German-style chalets transform the uphill area into a wonderland of festive sights and smells.
Why not also pay a visit to Sincil Bank and soak up the match-day atmosphere and watch Lincoln City Football club in action.
Our Head Office is conveniently located just a 5-minute walk from the Train Station, near St. Marks shopping centre.

Ambitions Personnel Jobs in Lincoln
We’ve been established in Lincoln since 1990, so we know the job market inside out. If you’re considering moving here and want to find out more about the types of roles available then speak to one of our consultants who’ll be happy to help. We recruit for permanent and temporary roles across a wide variety of industries, from warehousing, factory and driving, to office-based roles at all levels, including HR, marketing and accounts.
Entry level roles in industrial sectors such as factory and warehousing are usually paid at the National Minimum Wage / National Living Wage rates, but can sometimes attract a premium for overtime or shifts. Large employers will often use a recruitment agency to help with peaks in demand, and often offer permanent contracts to agency workers.
The average starting salary for an Administrator is between £16,000 and £18,000 per annum.
The city centre itself is small enough for everywhere to be accessed by foot. However, if you want to head further afield then Lincoln has a newly regenerated ‘transport hub’, encompassing a brand new bus station and improved links to the train station. The move has created an increase in services in the city, making it easier than ever to get about.
