Hayley SmithOne of the great things about these interviews is that while the people do all sorts of different jobs and work in all sorts of different areas of the university, one thing they all have in common is that they really like the work they do and the people with whom they work.  Add in the fact that  the city of Aberdeen has a fantastic breadth and depth of entertainment, arts, culture and sports facilities, and also that, as Hayley puts it, there is “the country on one side and the beach on the other.”
