When looking for work in a particular area it is always very important to ensure that you know the main businesses and companies in the area, as well as knowing which industries offer the best chances for employment. While this might seem like common sense, it might surprise you to learn how many people forget to follow those simply guidelines.

When it comes to searching for jobs in Bristol your best chance of success comes from focussing on the retail industry. Not only have you got major supermarket chains like tesco, Asda, Lidl and Morrisons in the area, but there area also large shopping centres like Broadmead Shopping Centre and The Mall at Cribbs Causeway to consider.

For full time work in the supermarkets we mentioned, an entry level position serving customers at the till or stocking shelves will earn you between £5.93 and £6.10 per hour for your first year or two. However you'll also be able to take advantage of the fact that these companies are continually offering upskilling opportunities for their staff, so with a little care and attention to your work and plenty of enthusiasm you should be able to work your way up in no time at all.

For thos of you who would prefer to work at a shopping centre, we recommend you set a day aside to call into each of the shopping centres armed with copies of your latest CV and call into each store you see that you might be interested in working in. Be sure to ask for the manager and ask about the possibility of vacancies arising in the near future. You can expect to earn a little more from these positions, namely between £6.10 and £6.41 per hour.
