Toulouse is France's fourth-largest city; it is the centre of Europe's space industry, and is also a seat of learning full of medieval buildings.
Companies like airliner-maker Airbus have contributed to a booming economy, with Toulouse's population rising significantly in the past few decades. But it is also a historic, gastronomic city, famous for such French classics as cassoulet and the controversial goose liver dish foie gras.
Working Lives travelled to Toulouse to profile six very different people who call the city home.
