Workers willing to move anywhere for the right remuneration and opportunity

Workers willing to move anywhere for the right remuneration and opportunity

Almost a third (31%) of workers are currently thinking about going to work abroad, with one in six (18%) claiming to have actual plans in place to do so, according to research* released today by the UK’s leading international recruiter, Change Recruitment Group.

When asked where they would be prepared to go, half (50%) said they would happily go and work in emerging markets for the right career opportunity and remuneration.  A further sixth (18%) would consider working in an emerging market, but confessed to having concerns about security issues with some locations.

The same study revealed that a quarter of UK workers (26%) feel that their career has either stood still or gone backwards over the past two years. Whilst two thirds (64%) think that their career would have progressed further had the UK not seen a recession.

Laura Drysdale, Change Recruitment’s international managing director said: “There are significant opportunities, both in established and emerging markets for workers willing to take the plunge. For many, it is not just about the remuneration benefits, but the lifestyle and opportunities to progress careers much faster.

“The tough job market in the UK has certainly peaked interests in moving abroad for many young workers with big ambitions. We are currently seeing demand for candidates in Africa and the Middle East.”
