Recruitment on the Coast

Recruitment on the Coast – Relocating to the South Coast!

Moving to the South Coast is an attractive proposition for those who are looking to get away from the bustle of the larger cities and closer to the seaside. With some of the most beautiful beaches in the UK, the South Coast has the perfect balance for recruiting and relaxing!

Cities such as Portsmouth and Southampton and towns like Bournemouth, are currently thriving; with modern shopping complexes and high-street stores, quirky pubs and seaside bistros, there is a mixture of the old and the new.  There is also one of the most desirable towns to live within England, which is Winchester. Winchester is a traditional, quaint town with riverside walks, winding streets and independent shops and cafes, all within a short commute to Southampton. The South Coast is perfect for anyone who likes water sports, hiking and the outdoors. As well as long sandy beaches, there is plenty of natural beauty around, including The New Forrest, a National Park known for it’s historic past and wild trails. The Jurassic Coast is also in close distance, one of the world’s heritage sites.

And, it could be a great investment, with house prices rising year on year, it is becoming a sought-after area to buy property. If you’re looking to relocate with a family, there are excellent schools across the South, some of the UK’s leading Universities and a thriving student community.

Business is continuing to buzz across the South Coast as there are some huge company headquarters based there. The recruitment industry is currently flourishing in Portsmouth, Southampton and Bournemouth as companies are taking a more relaxed approach to recruiting. The South Coast is a perfect location for work-life balance, and many of our clients are encouraging this. With the opportunity for flexible working, a generous holiday allowance, a laid-back culture and relaxed KPIs, these companies are rewarding their employees with a mature environment.

The South Coast is still well linked to the more cosmopolitan cities of London and Bristol, taking around two hours to get there. There are also international airports meaning that you can travel further afield. Or, you can stay closer to home and have a weekend away in Somerset or Cornwall.

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?
