Bath & Business
Over the years we have seen Bath become more and more tech focused, which is fantastic for a digital start-up like us. It’s easy to connect with other local businesses and learn from each other, and help each other improve
from previous learnings. It’s so important to remember your roots and stay humble when in a start-up. Bath has provided a lot of opportunities, networking and support so we’ll always be grateful for the solid springboard it gave us to kick MoveGB off.
Not only is Bath absolutely stunning and full of beautiful architecture and green open spaces, our office is also based on Walcot Street: Bath’s Artisan Quarter. It is historical and arty with some cosy pubs for afterwork bonding. Walking through Bath’s centre to our little corner always provides views which we rarely take for granted. Bath has a great university for fresh talent and we’ve found a plethora of hard-working, humble people in the local area who understand success and happiness comes from passionate-filled work and an active lifestyle. We also have a lot of talented staff who live on the outskirts of Bath, in Bristol and beyond. Bath is a picturesque place to host our office but it also provides easy transport links for those who live beyond the city borders. It means we’re not hemmed by location when looking for new employees - we can find the talent we need without worrying about where they’re based since Bath is so accessible.
Not only is Bath really well connected transport-wise for our staff, it’s also stocked full of exciting fitness venues and activities. From the stunning Hive yoga studio which newly opened just off Walcot Street to the small but perfectly formed independent @thestudio, Bath has some fantastic hidden fitness gems. Bath also has some great larger venues such as the leisure centre and the YMCA. The standard of workout venues helped us launch MoveGB in Bath and create loyal Move members who adore the venues as much as we do!
