Working in Bristol
Historically a port town, Bristol’s recent surge in wealth and prosperity has been a direct result of its many growth industries, such as defence and aeronautics.
Many people also find employment in the health and financial service sectors and the digital economy, which has unlocked a number of opportunities in science and research.
Salaries are not typically as high as other major cities in the UK, but this is offset somewhat by the lower cost of living and the growth in disposable income.
Bristol also has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the UK. However, it is becoming increasingly hard to find employment across the UK and so it would be advisable to find work before moving.

While property prices vary one thing’s for sure, property prices are steadily decreasing and have seen a fall of around 2.42% in the past year. As per Zoopla, 7th August 2019

Why Move to Bristol
Buenos Aires, Paris, Bristol. Yes you are reading that correct. Bristol has recently joined the likes of these famous capital cities in an inclusion on a National Geographic list of the ‘Coolest Cities in 2018’.
