NatWest Bank Say More Britons Are Working Overseas

Published: 6/15/2009

A study by Natwest Bank has found that more workers than ever before are doing jobs in countries other than the UK.

The study found that more than 200,000 brits went to work in other countries, the Natwest Bank data based on 2006 figures, the most recent available. Over 40 percent of these workers were at a managerial or professional level, taking their skills and knowledge to develop businesses abroad.

When asked about the reasons for moving these overseas workers said that they were lured by a better job and better pay. The average salary for these expat workers is GBP67,000, and when combined with a lower cost of living and better living standards generally it is clear to see how attractive such a proposition can be said a Natwest Bank spokesman.
