Bristol is a city of culture, collaboration and creativity
Bristol was named as one of the best places to live and one of the best European destinations to visit in 2019. The 10th largest city in Great Britain, Bristol is one of the ten ‘Core Cities’, with an estimated population of 459,300.
With a vibrant and diverse population and many inhabitants passionate about sustainability, independent businesses, technology and creativity, Bristol stands up as a city that you can’t ignore.
“The culture and creativity here mean Bristol is regularly listed as one of the top places to live or visit, both in the UK and in Europe, and it’s easy to see why. Most importantly, our team members love Bristol, as it has so much to offer, and we see first-hand that a happy employee is a productive one,” said Richard Hill, CEO of Mind Doodle.
In Bristol and neighbouring cities such as Bath, there is a strong network of organisations that regularly connect and collaborate.
