My current UK location is very close to Junction 10 of the M4 which is the A329M junction. Driving to Heathrow takes 30 minutes, driving to Bracknell or Reading takes 15 minutes.
My current UK location is also within 5 minutes walking distance of a railway station on the Reading to London Waterloo train line providing easy travel to London, Bracknell and Reading. A train to London Waterloo takes 73 minutes, a train to Reading takes 9 minutes and a train to London Paddington takes 44 minutes.
I am very open to relocate almost anywhere! My 3 children are working having successfully graduated. If offered a relocation I would probably relocate on a single bachelor basis for a year with the intention that my wife would join me after the first year. These arrangements can be very flexible - please let me know what arrangement would work best.
