Graduates eager for foreign adventures
Thursday, 15 April 2010
Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in business management may be interested to hear the results of research from PricewaterhouseCoopers which shows that 80 per cent of graduates want to work abroad.
The survey into the expectations of 4,200 graduates show that 80 per cent want to work from abroad, 70 per cent expect that they will use a non-native language at work and 94 per cent expect to work across geographic borders more than their parents.
Carol Stubbings, international mobility partner at the firm, said: "Younger employees' appetite for working overseas could eventually remove the need for financial enticement.
"But current immigration and tax systems, combined with the need for certain skills or experience levels can make deploying staff around the world complex and costly. Articulating shared values will be increasingly important as loyalty.
At the height of the economic downturn a number of promising graduates headed to emerging markets such as China in a bid to find employment, but now the UK is out of recession there are more opportunities in the country.
