Business is booming in Bristol – a city that has consistently been named the fastest growing nationally in numerous reports on business success. The urban population is the 8th largest in the UK and with the surrounding activities at the port of Avonmouth and the cities of Gloucester, Bath, Exeter & Plymouth in close proximity the entire South West economy is flourishing.
Recent analysis from a top accountancy predicted that Bristol would continue with its’ impressive growth record and a further report by one of the leading UK’s banks names it as the fastest growing city, with universities and thriving digital sector credited for large chunks of its success.
On top of this, the South West as a region is now outperforming the rest of the country, with an employment rate, higher even than London and the South East, according to recent ONS figures.
Its’ strong presence in highly regulated sectors such as Aerospace, Defence, Electronics and Financial Services to name but a few continue to create exciting new job opportunities for C-Suite, VP and Director level candidates.
The city of Bristol remains a top target for tech and creative firms looking to move out of London while property investors are following suit due to the overheated market in the capital. A recent study commissioned by UWE Bristol concluded that the city’s highly talented workforce and unparalleled collaborative approach gave it the potential to become one of the world’s leading centres for innovation.
Well publicised pleas by the leaders of the UK’s largest cities to devolve more powers and spending away from central government to regional centres, as well as the now removed tolls on the Severn Bridge, the electrification of the main line to Paddington, the M4/M5 axis and the excitement around Spaceport Cornwall can only continue to spur further growth across the entire South West region.
