Bristol is one of the UK’s most popular tourist destinations, with crowds flocking to see the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge, the Cheddar Caves, and Brunel's SS Great Britain.
However, for some recruiters, this isn’t just a family-friendly holiday resort – it’s home. Recruitment Grapevine caught up with Alan Furley, the Director at ISL in Bristol, to find out what it is like to live and work in this up-and-coming city.
What do you love about being a recruiter in Bristol?
I came to Bristol for University, and I have stuck around ever since! I do have experience working in London, but I have found Bristol can provide you with a great quality of life with some great opportunities, and it’s a great place to grow a business.
There’s also some really great business community support available. You can be just ten minutes away from some start-up incubators, but when there are also large businesses like Lloyds bank based here. It’s not sleepy by any means!
