Employees

The Bristol team recently relocated to a larger office in the busy and vibrant city centre. It has 30 desks where members of our Rail, Energy, Climate Change, Water and Environment teams are based. We are a hard-working, friendly bunch who are happy to help each other out.

On an average day, about 20 people hot desk in the office, with an increasing number of young professionals joining the various teams. We always look forward to welcoming new starters and colleagues visiting from other offices, so come and join us!

Ricardo is located very much in the corporate consultancy area of Bristol and shares the building with other infrastructure and specialist consultancies.

We like to socialise and often explore the local food scene, be it by going to the historic St Nicholas’ Market for lunch or by eating outside at Queen Square park in the summer. We have office socials every 2 months, which include evening meals out, sporting activities and recreational events. Previous evenings have included bowling, and pizza, pies and drinks along the Harbourside. Over the next few months we will be bringing out our competitive side at Laser Quest and Jungle Rumble.

On the last Friday of the month, we go out for a ‘pay-day’ lunch. Due to the number of local restaurants and cafés on our doorstep, we never choose the same place twice.

Bristol commute

Commute

Travel by bus: Bristol has a good bus network, connecting many outer areas of Bristol to the city centre. You can choose how you prefer to buy your bus tickets, using apps like FirstBus, contactless payment or the bulk buying options provided by some companies. Bus travel through Bristol can, however, be slow due to road upgrades being undertaken.

Travel by car: Bristol is situated close to the M4 and M5, with the M32 connecting the M4 to central Bristol. While this is quite convenient, the Bristol office has just two parking spaces so they are only available on a bookable basis. As with buses, car travel through Bristol can also be very slow, especially during peak travel times. There are, however, various park-and-ride routes to central Bristol. 

Travel by train: Bristol has two mainline railway stations - Temple Meads and Parkway. Both are served by direct trains from many parts of the country, including London, Plymouth, Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh. There are also many local trains to smaller stations throughout Bristol. Train travel to Bristol Temple Meads station is recommended as it is only a 15-minute walk from the office.

Cycling: Bristol’s good cycling paths and a large bike storage area in the building make cycling a great option for travel to the office.

Site information

People in the Bristol office make great use of its central location, with many walking or cycling to work. During the working day, several staff members like to get out of the office and socialise with colleagues, while others take part in various active pursuits like the lunchtime running club, playing squash or taking part in a spin class. The general Bristol vibe is a positive one when it comes to getting involved with sports, with lots of people keen to try new activities. Outside of work, people have various hobbies including running, cycling, surfing, skiing, CrossFit, hockey, squash, tennis and much more. As with any city, there is a huge range of sports clubs and an extensive list of societies to get involved with. The Bristol Index is the perfect place to start if this interests you!
