What is it like working in Plymouth?

As a coastal city, the majority of jobs are related to Devonport’s Naval dockyard, which is the largest in Western Europe. Jobs include diving, pipe fitting, engineering to name a few. If a naval-related career isn’t an option, Plymouth University means that education and administration is a large part of the city. 

The public sector has taken over coastal careers as the national retail chain The Range employ a lot of people in the city. The project ‘Plymouth’ 2020 has seen the creation of entertainment areas, retail areas, business parks, as well as the relocation of the city council. The project itself provides many opportunities for construction workers, project managers and site managers. With many markets and independent stores, there are endless opportunities for unskilled and skilled labourers.

What is it like living in Plymouth?

Almost half of Plymouth is greenspace, making it the greenest city in the United Kingdom. It sits on the edge of Dartmoor National Park and the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so there are no shortages for areas to hike and admire. Furthermore, as the city also has a coastline, it is also a great place for watersports and relaxing. It has more cobbled streets than anywhere else in England. A studio apartment away from the city centre can be rented for around £450 per month whereas it can cost up to £1,100 in more luxurious areas.
