A recent study carried out by Rosetta Stone showed some interesting insights on how Brits feel about working abroad, despite Brexit…
‘While 12% of Brits have now given up on their dream to work abroad, 42% still want to relocate, with Europe being the most attractive place for them to go.’
Our very own Natasha Stark is proof of this.
As DMCG Global’s Managing Partner of Amsterdam and Europe, she understands first-hand the dream of working abroad, especially after Brexit, as she resides in the Netherlands with her family, but is originally from the UK.
As a recruitment specialist across Europe, Natasha is well-informed on the complexities of relocating, even with the added immigration rules brought on by Brexit. She’s also aware of the most desirable skillsets among candidates right now, one of these includes being bilingual and speaking the native tongue.
Additional findings from the survey touched on this,
"38% of respondents said they thought the ability to speak another language would greatly improve job prospects outside of the UK."
And they are not wrong, Natasha commented,
“I do believe key skills such as the ability to speak the native language for the country you wish to work in are crucial to pursuing this dream, not only to land the job, but to improve the overall experience of living abroad.’
