Why work at Treforest?
Set in the beautiful Welsh countryside approximately 20 minutes from Cardiff, Treforest is historically connected to the mining of tin plate, dating back as far as 1835. Today, the town is better known for its links to the University of South Wales and this relationship dates back to 1913 when the School of Mines was originally established.
Today students from around the world come to study, with Treforest being the university’s main and largest campus, playing host to the bulk of academic departments and facilities.
Famously, Treforest is also the birth place of the musical legend Tom Jones, it is rumoured that Tom has an original telephone box from the town in his Californian home to remind him of his routes. Treforest was also home to Upper Boat Studios – a television studio complex where Doctor Who, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures were filmed up until 2013.
