It's no surprise that Bristol is consistently rated as one of the best places to live and work in the UK.

Join us and you'll get more than a challenging job; you'll enjoy all the benefits of living and working in one of Europe's most vibrant and best-located cities.

Our international reputation as a centre of culture and place to visit has grown dramatically in recent years, partly thanks to the council-led regeneration of the city centre and historic Harbourside.

With great architecture and stunning views, a host of cultural attractions and a great range of places to eat and drink, the city welcomes over nine million visitors every year.

It also offers one of the country's widest selections of music, multimedia and performance venues, nightclubs, art galleries, museums and historic buildings.

Bristol can provide a shopping experience to suit every taste and pocket. The best-known high street names can be found in the heart of the city's £500 million Cabot Circus development. We have more independent shops than any other major city and if you head to vibrant locations like Park Street, Whiteladies Road, Gloucester Road, Clifton Village and the historic St Nicholas Market, you'll find just the unusual and individual gift you were looking for.

In and around the hustle and bustle of the city, Bristol boasts over 400 gardens and parks, ideal for walking, cycling and relaxation.

As well as all this, and more, Bristol is within easy reach of some of Britain's most stunning landscapes, such as the Cotswolds, Cheddar Gorge, Stonehenge and Somerset, Devon and South Wales countryside and coast.

It's easy to get to the rest of the UK and Europe from Bristol; of all the major UK cities, it's the nearest to London and has unrivalled rail and motorway links, not to mention one of the country's fastest growing international airports.

Its green and blue spaces, compact nature and diverse, village-like communities make it a great place to live and visit.

You can find out more about Bristol's attractions at our tourism website, Visit Bristol, and there's a wide range of information about the city on the Bristol City Council website.
