Famous primarily for being steeped in history, Bath is a hotspot for tourists keen on learning more about the UK’s heritage. Every year, thousands of people flock to the city’s Roman Baths (from where the city gets its name) and its breathtaking abbey, perusing the region’s many hotels, bars and restaurants along the way.
Unsurprisingly, then, Bath’s economy benefits significantly from a thriving hospitality industry that draws in a huge number of visitors from the UK and abroad. What you may not be aware of, however, is the fact that the city’s employment market is diversifying and growing every year. An unprecedented number of tech start-ups, for example, are beginning to pop up in offices around the centre of Bath, generating demand for fresh talent and helping to build the city’s reputation as a hub for young professionals.
Interestingly, Bath’s employment landscape differs from many other cities in the UK in that a high proportion of employee jobs are categorised as part-time, reflecting residents’ hunger for a good work-life balance. In line with this desire for flexibility and less stressful forms of working, therefore, office spaces around the city are starting to evolve. Our selection of serviced offices boasts a range of features designed to boost wellbeing and promote flexible forms of working such as break-out spaces, coworking areas, 24-hour accessibility, and showers. Outside of office walls, there are also a number of quirky shops, green spaces and old-town architectural features to help professionals unwind on a lunch break.
If all that weren’t enough, most offices in and around the city centre are only a short walk away from Bath Spa Train Station. This important transport hub offers a range of speedy services to commuter towns surrounding the city as well as a regular 90-minute service to London Paddington – very useful for businesses with close partners and clients in the capital.
