Research from the Boston Consulting Group and totaljobs shows that whilst London is the most desirable city for overseas workers worldwide, the UK as a whole had fallen from the second-most popular country worldwide to fifth, behind the US, Germany, Canada and Australia.  

According to the Boston Consulting Group, British workers are also increasingly willing to work abroad with 73% of the under 30-years olds surveyed saying they'd be willing to move abroad for a job. So there are two trends to take away from the research: if you're relying on recruiting from overseas, you may have to work harder to attract people to the UK and your competition just got larger as your target audience in the UK are open to overseas work.
