Job hunting by UK region

The south west | Other regions

Our Finding a graduate job guide (campus only) provides advice about finding work in UK regions including some particular information about the local area around Bath.

You can search MyFuture (where we advertise job opportunities which are notified to us) by location. You can generate a list which also includes vacancies which have been advertised in the past. Not all employers will recruit through MyFuture but it is a starting point for identifying some graduate opportunities by region.

Duport business confidence reports detail business performance and trends in any area of the United Kingdom.

The South West

MyFuture

In MyFuture's advanced search facility for vacancies the region menu includes more detailed South West options for Bath, Bristol, Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. This is a useful starting point but not comprehensive due to the fact employers may not choose to use us or may not know about us. You should adjust the search defaults to look for both current and expired vacancies if you also want to view potential employers which are not currently advertising a job with us.

South West employers which have advertised vacancies with us between August 2013 and August 2015:
