Live and work in Bristol


Life in Bristol –

Bristol has a unique style and character that simply can’t be replicated anywhere else in the world. From its vast shopping facilities, beautiful buildings and houses, buzzy culture and nightlife, and access to the countryside, its’s been labelled one of the best places to live within the UK (Sunday Times).

The city is a place proud of its food, drinks, balloons and street art. You are probably thinking, what a bizarre combination of things, and you are correct in thinking so. But that’s what’s given Bristol it’s quirky reputation, with a sense of fun and creativity.

Bristol is praised for its big city feel but small size. You receive all the perks of living in a big city like London, without the cost and manic crowds. Life in Bristol can be quite relaxing and pleasing. With its wonderful mix of cultures, there are always new and exciting things to try or see.

It is full of hidden gems waiting to be discovered!

Links –

Bristol is well connected to the rest of the country by the M4. With easy access to Bath, Wales and the countryside. You can get your rural fix and escape to Somerset to explore Cheddar Gorge, or hike through the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire.

Oh, and London is only 90 minutes away as well. You will be spoilt for choice!

Working in Bristol –

For the size of Bristol, its job market is surprisingly strong. It has low unemployment rates and higher than average salaries. This, combined with reasonable rent and housing prices, makes Bristol the place to be!

Things to do in Bristol –

After a long day in work, nothing beats a walk along the harbourside and getting a pint of scrumpy in one of their many pubs.  Or if you visit the harbourside on the weekend you will be greeted with festival-like markets, which is a community of foodies, makers, musicians and artists.

If you are looking for a more family friendly day out, then visit the zoo. Bristol is home to the fifth oldest Zoo in the world, it’s been a large tourist attraction since 1836. There’s also Bristol aquarium, given you the chance to be underwater and close to the reef without getting wet!

There are many other things to do, such as visit the museum and art gallery, or a boat tour around the harbour. You want something more extravagant? Then go hot air ballooning!

The excitement never ends in Bristol.

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 💜
