Business services is a key industry for Somerset and the growth of this 'knowledge economy' has been a big boost for the county, which is still one of the most prominent areas in the country for new business start-ups.
Offering exciting opportunities for people who want a more rewarding life without compromising on their business aspirations, Somerset’s business services providers include companies working across a wide range of technical professions including:
- Design & Print
- Hospitality and Conference
- Marketing & PR
- Property Services
- Skills & Training
- Waste Management and Environmental Consultancy
Many of these companies have chosen to set up or relocate here due to the combination of a dynamic working environment and top broadband connectivity rates, along with an unbeatable quality of life.
With the expansion of work in other key sectors, the imminent growth due to developments at Hinkley Nuclear power plant, and the lower start up and property costs in the County compared to Bristol, Bath and other Cities, the case to be based in Somerset is very convincing.
