28 Apr 2016

Stephanie Mulholland

Those in the know will tell you that there’s a never ending list all of the fantastic things Belfast can offer – we could to the list on a daily basis. The jobs market is definitely on great course and if you’re considering a move or you’re part of the great Belfast Diaspora you’ll definitely be aware of all that our great city has to offer.

1: The People – First and foremost, Belfast is defined by its people. Resilient, tolerant and committed to leaving the past in the past. Belfast people are the hardiest, wittiest people on the island. Combine that with quality graduates from our schools and Universities and you’ll be hard pressed to find better talent or work colleagues anywhere else.

2: Industry – Belfast is and always will be a working town. From our shipbuilding heritage to tourism, today law firms such as Allen & Overy, Baker McKenzie and Herbert Smith Freehills and financial institutions like Citibank and Danske all call Belfast their home. Don’t forget about our own success stories such as Kainos and Automated Intelligence also.

3: City Life – All that work and no play? No way! We’ve got a vibrant, multi-cultural city with hopping pubs and busy cafés and a rich arts and culture scene. Night or Day you won’t be bored here – Belfast has a packed calendar of activities to suit all tastes and budgets.

4: Nature – If you’re a fan of the great outdoors, you won’t find a landscape more beautiful. Since Belfast is nestled at the mouth of the River Lagan, you don’t have to go far to enjoy Lagan Valley Regional Park. Take it further afield and enjoy everything that Northern Ireland has to offer. From the Antrim coast to the Mourne mountains, all this is on your doorstep. Looking for an oasis of calm? Belfast Botanical Gardens is a must-see in the heart of the city.

5: Connectivity- Being on an island protects us from the “sameness” that can come about in other major cities. Island living brings out a creative and self-reliant streak, that is enriched by the global connectivity we all form a part of today.
