4. More about Bristol

Bristol is the largest centre of culture, employment and education in the region. In more recent years the economy has depended on the creative media, electronics and aerospace industries, and the city centre docks have been regenerated as a centre of heritage and culture.
A £500 million shopping centre called Cabot Circus opened in 2008 amidst claims from developers and politicians that Bristol would become one of England's top ten retail destinations. Bristol was selected as one of the world's top ten cities in 2009 by international travel publishers Dorling Kindersley.

Bristol is one of the South’s foremost cities and home to a brilliantly esoteric music scene and a growing reputation for sport. The incredibly wide choice of places in the city where you can go to enjoy yourself is a natural boost to the local economy and to the industries concerned. 

The inevitable exploitation of Bristol’s crowded centre by opportunists means that there will be a requirement for security professionals to protect people, cash and private property in a public setting. There are numerous opportunities for security professionals wherever there are individuals keen to endanger the security of others.
