RELOCATING TO THE UK

 

6.    Why should potential candidates relocate to the UK and not to other countries?

The UK is full of opportunities and amazing experiences. You can travel from the top to the bottom of the country in just 10 hours! It has many great places to visit including our fantastic capital city London which is just 2 hours from Bournemouth by train., Bournemouth has a huge multicultural population, it a big university town with lots of nightlife activity, with many clubs, restaurants, live music venues and pubs. The UK is surrounded by beautiful coastlines, world heritage sites, countryside and mountains, Bournemouth has recently been voted one of the best beaches in the UK, right next to the town centre you have 7 miles of golden sands. Living in Bournemouth is very relaxed, accessible and there are loads of fun things to do.  Life is very social, there are many local festivals and carnivals throughout the year. Our festivals set us apart from other seaside towns and ensure that residents and visitors have many options to join in. Every year we enjoy the Bournemouth Air Festival, Arts by the Sea Festival, Christmas Tree Wonderland, Bournemouth Marathon, free Friday night Fireworks from the pier, Bournemouth Food Festival and many many more.  There are plenty of activities to do during the day and night for people of all ages and interests.


The cost of living is relatively cheap, compared to other European countries, as the wages are better. Even though the prices have increased, the daily life expenditures are very affordable. A meal for one person at a pub or a restaurant is around £10. Rent prices depend on each city and expectations, for example in Bournemouth a room in a house share is between £60-80 per week (typical room in a 4-6 bed house). However, a studio apartment is around £500 per month. On top of this, when living in the UK you have to pay council tax which is dependent on the valuation bands of the property. 

 

Way of living in the UK


The UK is a highly-developed country with strong economic stability, offering many exciting opportunities for expats. One of the reasons people find the UK to be the easiest place to move to, is the fact that English is the official language, which minimises the language barrier. The National Health Service is an attractive factor when relocating, as residents have access to free healthcare and world leading medicine and research. If you are a traveler and like to discover new places, the UK is in the perfect location, as travelling to and from is very easy! Taking holidays in order to travel is not be a problem either, as by law, companies are required to give employees 28 paid days off per year. Besides these great benefits, English people are what makes this beautiful and unique country, the welcoming island that everyone is drawn to. The people of the UK are known for their kindness, welcoming nature and a great sense of humour!
We believe that the culture, lifestyle and opportunities are enough to convince anyone to move to the UK! We encourage you to check out the opportunities available in the UK and at Conduent using your native language.
