Location and transport

Mage is located in the Scottish Enterprise Technology Park, East Kilbride. For those who live in or near Glasgow, it’s a half-hour drive from the city centre. You’ll be driving in the right direction to miss the rush hour traffic (as most commuters travel into Glasgow in the morning and back out at the end of the day).

There are also great public transport links, with buses taking you from most areas of Glasgow to a 15-minute walk away. There is also a train service between Glasgow Central and East Kilbride.

We look forward to receiving your application and we hope we’ll be welcoming you onboard soon.
