Executive Assistant

The economic powerhouse of Wales, Cardiff has been on a steady incline for years now, as businesses within the city grow, opportunities arise, and more and more businesses decide to move to the capital city.

To name just a few sectors, whether it’s the large scale legal firms based in the city centre, the Fintech businesses moving from London to Cardiff, or the creative agencies cropping up in the hip neighbourhoods (from Pontcanna through to Cardiff Bay), multiple industries are thriving in Cardiff.

Cardiff as a city also offers an ample range of culture and arts and a myriad of things to fill your time with, whether it’s museums, restaurants, concerts or nature (both the seaside and mountain walks are an easy drive or bus ride away), Cardiff is quickly becoming a go-to destination for both young and experienced job-seekers looking for a more affordable city to live in.
