One in four would work abroad
Upping sticks for a better job abroad is a tempting prospect for one in four Brits, who hope to escape stagnant wage growth anf the soaring cost of living in the UK.
According to a survey from GfK, 27% of the 1000 questions were willing to make a change of country, with 36% of those aged 18-29 most willing to move.
'Even if only a fraction of these people actually move abroad, UK businesses will face a significant loss of talent, just at the time they most need it,' said Sukhi Ghataore from GfK.
And in the US and Canada – countries often stereo-typed for their lack of interest in moving abroad – a fifth of the 30000 working adults questioned said that they would change country for a better job.
