Jobs in Cardiff

Cardiff is the capital of Wales and the UK’s 11th largest city.

The city is visited by 18.3 million tourists every year, and continues to grow year upon year. The city is the country's chief commercial centre, the base for most national cultural and sporting institutions, the Welsh national media, and the seat of the National Assembly for Wales. The antiquarian William Camden suggested that the name Cardiff may derive from ‘Caer-Didi, meaning ‘the Fort of Didius’, a name supposedly given in honour of Aulus Didius Gallus, governor of a nearby province at the time when the Roman fort was established.

Archaeological evidence from sites in and around Cardiff all show that people had settled in the area by at least around 6000 BC, during the early Neolithic; about 1,500 years before either Stonehenge or the Great Pyramid of Giza was completed. A group of five Bronze Age tumuli is at the summit of the Garth within the county's northern boundary. Four Iron Age hill fort and enclosure sites have been identified within Cardiff's present-day county boundaries, including Caerau Hillfort. In 1081 William I, King of England, began work on the castle keep within the walls of the old Roman fort, and Cardiff Castle has been at the heart of the city ever since, with a town growing around the structure. In 1793, John Crichton-Stuart, 2nd Marquess of Bute was born. He would spend his life building the Cardiff docks and would later be called ‘the creator of modern Cardiff’.

A twice-weekly boat service between Cardiff and Bristol was established in 1815, and in 1821, the Cardiff Gas Works was established. Cardiff was made a city in 1905, and proclaimed the capital of Wales in 1955.

Since the 1980s, Cardiff has seen significant development. A new waterfront area at Cardiff Bay contains the Senedd building, home to the Welsh Assembly and the Wales Millennium Centre arts complex. Current developments include the continuation of the redevelopment of the Cardiff Bay and city centre areas with projects such as the Cardiff International Sports Village, a BBC drama village, and a new business district in the city centre. Sporting venues in the city include the Principality Stadium, Sophia Gardens, Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff International Sports Stadium, Cardiff Arms Park and Ice Arena Wales.

The city was awarded the title of European City of Sport twice, due to its role in hosting major international sporting events: first in 2009 and again in 2014. The Principality Stadium hosted 11 football matches as part of the 2012 Summer Olympics, including the games' opening event and the men's bronze medal match. Cardiff has many cultural sites varying from the historical Cardiff Castle and out of town Castell Coch to the more modern Wales Millennium Centre and Cardiff Bay. Cardiff was also a finalist in the European Capital of Culture 2008.

Annual events in Cardiff that have become regular appearances in Cardiff's calendar include Sparks in the Park, The Great British Cheese Festival, Cardiff Mardi Gras, Cardiff Winter Wonderland, Cardiff Festival and Made in Roath.

Famous faces that hail from Cardiff includes the likes of Shirley Bassey, Griff Rhys Jones, Roald Dahl, Gwyneth Lewis and Gethin Jones.
