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

Celebrating 5 years of the FABULOUS Louise Reid on our Team 🧡 🥳

Louise heads up all of our European hiring needs and actually made the move herself 3 years ago when she set up home in Amsterdam 🏠

Today’s #worldbookday, a fantastic day to celebrate the books we love and that inspire us!

From the stories that inspired us as children, those which some of our favourite films come from to thrillers and business literature that keep our brains moving as adults - books are the gateway to a world of imagination 🌍 📕 

What’s your favourite? Either personally or business-wise?
