The new Aptus Guide 2017
A guide aimed at Digital and Creative Employers in the South West, the new Aptus Guide 2017, has just been published by Aptus Recruitment, Exeter.
The Digital and Creative Sector is already very strong in the West Country. Employers find the cost of running their business in Cornwall or Devon compared to other parts of the UK allows them to be more competitive in the market place.
Property values, rental and business rates all favour locating your business in the South West. Another added value is the predominance of high speed broadband in the majority of urban locations as well as access to excellent commercial property and office spaces across the region.
Companies also find that average salary costs in Devon and Cornwall are lower than other areas of the UK, again making them more competitive when compared to companies located in London, Manchester of Birmingham for example.
In addition, the lifestyle benefits of living in the West Country prove to be very appealing to employees looking to achieve a good work life balance. They can focus on getting the job done during the working week then, often within minutes, they can be on the beach or on the moors relaxing at the end of the day.
For employees raising families the South West is healthy, wholesome and family oriented. There are a fabulous range of excellent schools, great social activities and access to amazing outdoors activities to suit the entire family.
The South West really does have it all for an industry that is not constrained by physical geography. In the Digital and Creative space as long as you have access to high speed broadband your market is always in reach.
Relocate South West’s Contribution
We were delighted when Aptus Recruitment approached us here at Relocate South West to help them with local insight and knowledge on the areas covered by their guide.
We were able to provide them with information on Healthcare and Education, Roads and Transport Infrastructure, Digital Connectivity, Local Amenities, Activities and things to do and of course average property prices across the South West.
We hope this information proves useful to not only employers looking to relocate to the South West but also employees within the Digital sector who may be thinking of making the move.
