Relocating – Living and Recruiting in Exeter

Officially voted as one of the top 20 best places to live in the UK, Exeter is a quaint yet rapidly expanding city in the South West. Although Exeter is thought to be a relatively small and traditional city, it is close to beautiful coastline, national parks and vast countryside, as well as having excellent transport links to Bristol, Devon, Plymouth and the M5 corridor, and an international airport.

The city itself boasts quaint architecture, cobblestone streets and an 800-year-old cathedral, with an abundance of independent shops, alongside big branded, high-street stores. This quirky, historic city is situated on the River Exe where you can enjoy sitting beside the river in many bars and restaurants. With a relaxed vibe, Exeter has all the positives of a big city with the close-knit feeling of a town!

Exeter has a thriving student community and one of the UK’s leading Russell Group Universities. It is also an excellent location for outdoor sports, including water sports and has a competitive football and rugby team. It is a diverse city with plenty on offer for those interested in music and the arts. With a low crime rate and excellent schools, Exeter is a sought-after place to get on to the property ladder as property is more reasonable than some of the larger cities.

There has been a recent buzz about business development in Exeter, with a real focus around the recruitment industry. As the industry continues to flourish, there has been a growing demand for recruiters. The recruitment industry is no longer bound to the big cities, and this shift to the South West means that the market is changing. With flexible-working, employee incentives and rewarding work environments, it is the perfect time to relocate. Exeter offers an excellent work-life balance and an affordable cost of living, allowing you to truly switch-off from the office!

We have excellent relationships with some of the leading agencies in Exeter, so if you are looking to get into recruitment, change sector or develop your career, then we may have the ideal role for you! We currently have live vacancies in the following sectors:

  • Construction
  • Finance
  • Technology

Today we pay homage to Gemma Hill and celebrate her 2 year anniversary with PP!

Gem is someone the business had known a long time, and due to circumstance and the stars aligning, the opportunity came up in 2021 for her to join the team - and we've never looked back.

She has brought a fresh, fun and very detailed approach to PP and the Rec2Rec market, something which our clients and all the candidates that Gem has dealt with will attest to.

We love having her on our team, she makes us laugh and truly cares about everyone she works with and comes into contact with in her role!

So here's to Gem's first 2 years at PP, with many more to come 💜
