It’s well documented that the GAAPS team Travel Well; just like the Actuarial profession itself!
And it’s fair to say that we often favour the warmer climates of the mediataranian, the hustle and bustle of the Far East, the Surf of Australasia; or cities steeped in history; which is why once a year we are only too happy to host the Heriot Watt Actuarial careers fair in Edinburgh.
Now scoff as you may, it may not have the surf of Sydney but we choose our travels destinations carefully; and Edinburgh is NO exception!
Two fabulous days were spent flitting around this wonderful city on foot; sampling the gastronomic delights of La Partenopes delicious home made desserts, stodgy dumplings and excellent wines by evening, and by day we couldn’t resist sampling the scrumptious cakes at Urban Angel.
I’d like to point out that all this eating was in the name of client entertainment; and as for the flitting around the wonderful city on foot; well, we cat be seen to recommend new employer locations to our candidates without actually having bothered to check out the areas for ourselves can we now; so feel free to email us if you need advise on cafe’s, bars, restaurants and oh the odd retail store 😉
