Where to look for vacancies in Bournemouth

In recent times job hunting has become increasingly more difficult due to the economic down turn. There are far fewer positions available than there were a couple of years ago, however due to increased unemployment there is also far greater competition. However there are still jobs to be had, you just need to look in the right places. So let’s take a look at where the best places are to find vacancies in Bournemouth.


Due to Bournemouth being situated on the south coast of England it has a strong tourist industry, with people attracted to its warm summers and beaches. Because of this there is also a strong service industry with a high number of pubs, bars, clubs, hotels and restaurants in the area. This industry therefore accounts for a large number of the employed in Bournemouth. This is especially true during the summer months when the tourist season is at its peak. We would recommend cold calling to these businesses as it is a common way to gain employment in this sector.


If you have an interest in working in the retail sector we would recommend visiting Bournemouth’s four large shopping centres. These are The Quadrant Centre, Castlepoint Shopping Park, The Avenue Shopping Centre and The Sovereign Shopping Centre. When you visit these shopping centres we would recommend bringing a few CVs with you as shops advertise vacancies on their windows. And when you take into account the number of outlets in each shopping centre having a CV or two close to hand would be a clever move.
