Ten reasons jobseekers should relocate to North Wales
Whether you’re taking the plunge alone or have a family to consider, it’s not always easy to simply pack up and relocate for work. But given the right offer, it could be the best decision you ever make. We’ve put together ten reasons why you should relocate to North Wales.
1. Thriving economy
Businesses continue to invest and are basing themselves in North Wales. With reasonably-priced office spaces, a range of industries are putting down roots in the region, including creative agencies and pharmaceutical head offices. Now’s a good time to relocate to the area and be a part of the action.
2. Key sectors are flourishing
The region has a growing reputation for offering high quality professional services and support functions, with particular expertise in IT and financial sectors. Companies are always on the lookout for highly-trained employees. Be part of the area’s growth; let Supertemps Specialist
find the ideal role for you.
3. Get more for your money
The average house price in North Wales is £162,821 - that’s almost £19,000 cheaper than the national average
4. Cost of living
With a lower cost of living, you have a better opportunity to save for the future, bringing you peace of mind for later life.
5. Cheaper than you think
Relocation might not be as expensive as you might think. According to a 2013 survey
by Atlas Van Lines, 82% of companies reimburse or pay for some relocation costs for new employees.
6. It’s beautiful
North Wales offers some of the most spectacular scenery, not just in the UK, but in the world. Just take a look at the stunning Snowdonia National Park or Anglesey’s beautiful coastal path. Relocate and take advantage of what’s on your doorstep.
7. We're a talented bunch
There is a huge talent pool to learn from. The region produces thousands of strong graduates from universities such as Bangor and Aberystwyth, so there is an opportunity for you to work alongside some fantastic colleagues.
8. Strong transport links
London is only three hours away from Bangor, for example. So, if you are worried about relocating to North Wales, don’t: you’ll be able to visit friends and family elsewhere quickly and easily.
9. Family matters
A relocation isn’t just about you if you have dependants. If you are a jobseeker who dreams of providing an idyllic environment for your family to grow up in, North Wales boasts plenty of good schools, low pollution levels and a host of outdoor activities to keep children entertained throughout school holidays.
10. Cheaper education
Speaking of children, you could save more than £16,000 in student fees if you relocate to North Wales. Students must spend two years in the Welsh education system and then when it comes to them going off to university, they will pay fees of £3,685 a year, rather than up to £9,000 for students in England.
On average, you will spend 99,117 hours working in your lifetime. Let North Wales help you to enjoy them.
