Herefordshire Benefits

ETL Systems is located next to BT's impressive satellite teleport at Madley, 5 miles from Hereford. This rural area is perfect for satellite communications as it is protected by the bordering hills. The purpose built ETL facility is surrounded by cider apple orchards and has great links to Gloucester, Ross-on-Wye, Monmouth, and Worcester.

Herefordshire is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with the Forest of Dean to the south, Malvern hills to the east, Shropshire hills to the north and Brecon Beacons to the west.

Some of the many reasons why our staff like living here:

  • Centre of culture and history: with castles, black and white villages
  • Outdoor pursuits, farm parks and plenty to keep children entertained
  • Excellent village schools and high quality further education colleges including future plans for Hereford University in 2018/19. 
  • Good mix of different industries and variety of job opportunities
  • Good motorway links with the rest of the UK
  • Plenty of living choice; from city centre apartments to country cottages.
