Nottingham may only have a population of 300,000 but it's a city that punches well above its weight. Perhaps most famous for its connections with the legendary figure Robin Hood, Nottingham uses its position in the East Midlands to bring together resources and a workforce that enables it to compete with cities twice the size. As a member of the English Core Cities Group it works with the likes of Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool to promote regional centres outside London. Nottingham is also home to many pioneering science and medical research centres and companies - a result in part of the town being the birthplace of Boots the Chemist in 1849. Boots still has its head office in Nottingham and is one of the city's biggest employers.

Ask people to name the top five shopping cities in the UK and they'll probably forget to include Nottingham. And yet this East Midland city is on a par with the likes of Leeds for attracting shoppers. It's perhaps due in part to its historic links with the lace industry and the fashion trade - a tradition continued with fashion designer Paul Smith setting up headquarters in Nottingham. At the Victoria, Exchange and Broadmarsh shopping centres you'll find the big brand names such as John Lewis, House of Fraser and Debenhams. But you'll also find many smaller fashion, jewellery or design stores where you'll be able to make your mark and help the company develop.
