London’s the first choice for foreign professionals looking to move overseas, according to new research.
Beating New York, Singapore and Paris, London’s top-class banking, legal sector and creative industries draw foreign professionals to the capital.
The survey of more than 160,000 job-seekers in a range of sectors from banking to telecommunications found that half respondents would consider London if they moved over seas. This is compared with 28 per cent who would like to work in New York, 16 per cent in Singapore, 15 per cent in Paris 15 and 10 per cent in Sydney.
Workers in crisis-hit countries are particularly keen to move to London, with those in Portugal, Ireland and Greece seeing it as a top destination.
