Paisley is a great place to work. I’m newly graduated and I’m delighted to have a job on the graduate internship programme - it’s allowing me to put my skills into practice in a local business.

Paisley has the highest concentration of listed buildings in Scotland after Edinburgh. A stroll through the town centre takes you past the ancient Abbey, past the splendid Thomas Coats Memorial Church, past the Paisley Museum and Art Galleries. The town also has a thriving arts scene. There is, plainly, a lot going on.
