Live and work in the beautiful South West

Our region

From Gloucester down to the Isles of Scilly, we cover an area of 22,000km² and a population of five million people. The South West has something for every lifestyle. We can offer picturesque countryside or city living, with sandy beaches along the coast and stunning moorland in the Dartmoor National Park. Bristol has a thriving creative scene and our universities are some of the best in the world.

According to the Lloyds Bank Happiness Index, we're the happiest region in England – a title we’ve claimed several times in recent years. There’s a real community spirit, whether you’re in the smallest village or the biggest city. It's easy to understand why the region has been called Britain’s “best-kept secret”. And when you join one of our Provider Partners, you can discover it for yourself.
