“Charity call centres, as long as you can follow a script they'll give you a job that day. Probably the most soul destroying 9 months of my life, but Bristol's got a couple of them. Other then that...erm...more call centres, just not for charities...Ethicall - where I worked, boss is a monster, managers are trolls.NTT - mates work there, as far as I'm aware not as bad.Lots of young people so if you wanna make some friends it's a good place to start.”

“Reasonably priced? - There's cheaper cities. A pints about 3 quid on average. Decent bars - yup, loads. Best in the west. Getting around - get a bike, get a helmet, get high-vis jacket. Buses and trains are better in New Delhi.”

“Bristol can be expensive if you are big on socialising but on the other hand it is a great place for socialising! Bars, pubs, clubs, music venues, theatre...I'd echo the suggestion to get bikes. Public transport is not bad but is expensive. Bristol is a 'cycling city'.There is reasonably priced accommodation if you pick the right area.Easy employment opportunities are in retail (shop work), call centres, catering, cleaning, care homes / hospital ancillary. Opportunities for using your degrees and getting suitably rewarded will be slim - you are up against similarly ambitious UK graduates who employers know won't be off in the summer! The finance sector is big if you have a little experience in banking, pensions admin, accountancy, book keeping, etc but the pay is no better than previously mentioned casual work. However the hours are typically more sociable.Have a look at the jobs section of this site...”
