More people working abroad, says AGCAS

29/11/2007  10:19:21



Working abroad is becoming increasingly common due to the increased globalisation of companies, according to the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS).

The professional association of career professionals in higher education said the likelihood that a UK professional will spend part of their working life working in a different country has increased.

This is particularly the case for those working for offshore companies or in sectors where travel is part of the job, such as the oil industry or the financial sector.

A professional working at one of the big four accountancy companies or the big banks for example, is "quite likely [to] have clients that are overseas".

According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the UK has 700,000 more highly skilled expatriates in OECD countries than it has highly skilled immigrants from other OECD countries.

More than ten per cent of the highly skilled born in the UK are living in other OECD countries and according to The Business Magazine, 1.26 million British graduates are currently living abroad.

Elspeth Farrar, communications director at AGCAS, said: "Often the people that go abroad have specific skills or will be working at a specific level within a company to go and get transfers or placements abroad.

"A lot will be involved in some kind of teaching or education abroad [or] working at management level, so it’s not surprising that a high proportion are graduates."
