Whilst Guernsey has many of the things you would recognise and associate with the UK such as its language, a sterling economy, driving on the left, recognisable businesses and brands, Guernsey has a distinct twist. We have many unique and independent businesses, Guernsey-French road names and an island life culture that is more open and friendly then you may have experienced within UK towns and cities.
I moved to Guernsey in 2021 to join family who were already here and have become part of a much bigger community since I arrived. The career opportunities are varied and interesting and the ability to get involved in just about any activity you can think of, unsurpassed!
Seeing the sea every day brings me joy and my dogs love running in the sand. My young nieces are growing up in a warm, friendly, and safe community with stunning scenery.
The team at Locate Guernsey are friendly, approachable, and full of useful advice for making the move, they helped me get started finding a home, making business contacts and understanding the practical aspects of the move.
We fell in love with Guernsey as tourists. The mix of Gower coastline and Cotswold countryside reflects areas we have lived and loved on the mainland. COVID taught us we could run our business from anywhere, so the ‘One Day’ dream became a reality. We’re now celebrating our first anniversary on the island and have absolutely no regrets. There are many newfound delights of sea swimming, walking the dogs on the many beaches every day, the dialled back pace of life, hedge veg, beach kiosk coffee & cake, Guernsey cream and great restaurants.
