11 MILLION BRITS WANT JOBS OVERSEAS

Almost one in four working people in the UK are contemplating a job overseas within the next two years - more than 11 million people and a fifth of those would look to relocate to Australia, according to currency specialist Foreign Currency Direct.15-05-2009

At a time when UK unemployment is more than two million with many predicting that tax increases will push Britain’s highest earners overseas, as part of its Money Moves campaign, Foreign Currency Direct asked a GB representative sample of over 2,000 adults whether they were considering looking for a job abroad as a result of the recession, and which countries they believed offered the best opportunities and benefits for overseas employment.


Men are almost twice as likely as women to opt for a job abroad (20% versus 11%)
While one in four younger Brits aged 18 to 30 years would be prepared to accept a job abroad (25%), a significant one in ten of those edging towards retirement (aged 51 to 60) would also take the plunge (10%).  
With the number of jobless in Birmingham higher than any other major UK city, the latest research reveals that those living in the Midlands are subsequently the most likely to look for a job overseas (17% compared to just 13% of those in Wales and the South West).  


English speaking countries with a warmer climate are the top choice for Brits looking for employment overseas.  A fifth of those who are eager to find a job abroad would look to Australia (20%) and one in six would opt for the USA (16%).  One in ten Brits would rather work in New Zealand (10%) and eight per cent would choose Canada.
