London remains top choice for international workers

London’s glory remains untouched by Brexit uncertainty, as the latest surveys show the city being at the top place for overseas workers.

According to a study conducted by the Boston Consulting Group and totaljobs.com, London has beaten New York, Berlin and Barcelona among the top cities desired by international talent.

Jules Pipe, Deputy Mayor of London for Planning, Regeneration and Skills noted: “London is the most entrepreneurial, outward-looking, creative capital city in the world. Crossrail and the North London line extension are just two projects which are opening up new parts of London for investment. London has a great future ahead of it, and is a great place to live, work and invest.”

The capital’s resilience to Brexit is remarkable as the UK has overall dropped in the rankings with 60% of British workers willing to seek employment elsewhere amid cross-border movement concerns.

To prevent talent shortage, the UK government has unveiled a £1.3 billion funding package to help the country attract world-leading talent in the fields of science and technology.

For Olivier Gergele, Senior Principal with A.T. Kearney, London has the ability to attract top talent. London’s extremely strong foundations help the city resist Brexit pressure. Gergele has acknowledged Brexit’s short-term impact but still sees London as having stronger foundations than many other European cities.
