4 in 5 engineers in the UK are prepared to work abroad
08 January 2013
Four out of five British engineers say they are prepared to leave the UK and work on projects overseas according to research from Roevin.
With businesses increasingly looking to international markets, pressure is being applied to engineering professionals to be more mobile and consider working abroad.
In a poll with today’s engineering workforce, exciting locations and elevated benefits packages are cited as key incentives for British engineers. Remuneration is the single biggest draw for working overseas (75 per cent), but a more attractive lifestyle (53 per cent) and valuable work experience (48 per cent) are also significant drivers.
