Recruitment Agencies in Bristol
Contributing towards an unemployment rate that's lower than the national average, recruitment agencies in Bristol play an important role in helping employers recruit local candidates for permanent, temporary or contract jobs. The City of Bristol is one of the largest cities in the UK and a strong economy is supported by key industries such as aerospace, retail and finance.
The City and County of Bristol is located in the South West of England, a location that benefits from its close proximity to London. Excellent transport links such as the M4 motorway, have attracted a number of jobs and created a higher demand for employment agencies in Bristol. The city is home to more than 230,000 workers and this equates to an employment figure of around 75%.
Key industries for employment in Bristol
The South West's engineering and aerospace sectors are responsible for nearly 26,000 jobs and Bristol recruiters may work alongside a range of prominent employers such as BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce and Airbus. The Ministry of Defence also has a significant hiring presence, taking on staff within the purpose built Abbey Wood site in Filton. A number of national specialist agencies cover the Bristol area, however more diverse employment firms may also operate in the field.
Businesses within the professional services, such as those in the finance or legal sectors, employ more than 31,000 members of staff. Multi-sector agencies will fill the majority of job vacancies in these vocations, however there are industry specialist staffing consultancies in the area. Jobs in these sectors are most commonly found within the City Centre or North Fringe, with an abundance of renowned firms basing themselves here. Some of these include Lloyds Banking Group, Simply Health and Grant Thornton.
Retail in Bristol
The Bristol retail sector received a major boost in 2008 with the opening of the £500 million Cabot Circus shopping centre, which includes branches of House of Fraser and Harvey Nichols amongst many other popular retailers. 15% of employment in Bristol is in the retail sector and there are a high number of recruitment agencies with expertise in providing commerce staffing solutions. These can be found across the county, however there is a concentration of services between College Green and Broadmead - just north of the River Avon.
