At Bond Williams Professional Recruitment, we have a wide variety of roles available for job seekers in the Bournemouth area alone; and with our recent expansion across the south coast, we are seeing increasing enquiries from people hoping to relocate to our beautiful seaside town.

Aside from the fact that Bournemouth sees 364 more hours of sunshine than anywhere else in the UK, it is also frequently ranked one of the best places to live with great transport links from neighbouring towns and cities.

With location and ease of commute being cited as some of the top considerations for UK jobseekers in a recent survey by Glassdoor, we thought we’d share some reasons why living and working in Bournemouth is so great.

Job diversity

Business is booming here. Bournemouth and Poole have been dubbed the 10th fastest growing economy in the country; has the fastest growing digital economy in the UK; and boasts one of the fastest-growing employment rates. Locally, most businesses are service providers, and key sectors include financial services and insurance, marine and aviation, travel and tourism and of course, digital. Within those industries, there are a variety of exciting roles.

Healthy lifestyle

When it comes to quality of life, Bournemouth has been ranked 3rd in the country, according to a 2017 study by the Centre of Economic and Business Research and the Royal Mail. It looked at factors such as work-life balance and access to good schools and green spaces.

In addition, a lot of businesses in the area have started incorporating health and wellbeing benefits into employment packages. From discounts at local gyms and healthy food restaurants and retailers to cycle to work schemes and private healthcare, you may find yourself getting in better shape as well as a decent job.

Best of both worlds

Despite losing its bid for official city status in 2012, Bournemouth remains one of largest towns in the country and still has a city feel about it, with a huge commercial centre and exciting nightlife.

On your doorstep are not just some of the UK’s best beaches, but some of the world’s most award-winning beaches; and the neighbouring town of Poole is home to the second largest natural harbour in the world.

London is just a two-hour direct train journey away, but if you prefer the quieter life, then rural Dorset and the West Country is also easily accessible.
