More workers 'considering careers abroad'
Tuesday, 04 November 2008
More graduates and other professionals are considering working overseas as international recruitment becomes increasingly commonplace, a new study has suggested.
Research carried out by online jobs firm The Network indicates that 69 per cent of survey respondents, distributed across 18 countries, would consider working on foreign soil, reports Onrec.com.
Some 39 per cent said they had always considered working abroad, while a further 30 per cent claimed they would accept a role if it matched their ambitions.
Commenting on the survey, The Network managing director Steven Lewis said it appeared the labour market had become more global.
He added: "Specialists are more open-minded to jobs abroad. This means that recruiters alike have to position themselves as an international employer brand, to win the global war for talents."
Last month, research by the Council for Industry and Higher Education indicated that foreign work experience could help individuals land graduate jobs.
