We are currently looking for nurses to come and work in Bristol. You will never be bored of things to do or see in this vibrant and culturally diverse city close to the beach. Read on to find out why you should move to Bristol.

The region

In 2016, the South West claimed six of the top 10 places to live in the UK, as voted for by the public. Dorset, Devon and Cornwall possess Britain’s most-loved beaches and natural beauty and it’s understandably the UK’s No.1 holiday destination. But Bristol and Plymouth also offer cities that boast everything you’ll need in terms of jobs, shopping, nightlife and culture. That’s not forgetting Bath, a spectacular pretty city.

    I presently work as a Band 6 Team Leader in theatres in Buckinghamshire and I am looking to relocate to the Bristol Area spring/summer of 2020. I am looking for a bigger hospital setting than my present place of work which was a great introduction back to the UK and the NHS. I took my present job as a nurse returning to the UK after many years working in the USA. Lucy Hurst was my recruiter at HCL and we worked together to get my present job last year. I am looking at working with HCL as well as other job entities.
    Thank you, Kind Regards, Hyacinth McIver
