More skilled people than ever are now moving abroad to work in other countries

Maryport, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/28/2012 -- Between 2000 and 2006, there was a rise of 44% in the number of educated people migrating from upper- and middle-income countries, and a rise of 28% from lower-income countries.

Why the Increase?

The increase in highly educated people moving abroad to different countries to work is mainly due to the lack of talent in local markets. Many businesses simply cannot find the qualified people in the area in which they are operating, and need to increase their scope to fill their positions.

As more companies expand to work in a greater number of countries, the opportunities for finding work abroad are increasing. Companies need to find skilled technicians, engineers, managers and leaders with the relevant training and experiences, all of which means if people have the right skills then they may stand a better chance of finding a position overseas.

Where Do They Go?

According to the research, Brazil, India and China are the three countries most likely to import foreign workers with the right skills.

This is hardly surprising as these huge burgeoning economies are desperate to grow and don’t want to be held back by a lack of local talent.

However, skilled workers are moving all over the world into new positions. For example, many companies operating in the finance industry in the US and the UK are also relying on foreign workers to fill their top positions.

Reasons for Moving

The main motivation for moving overseas seems to be to earn more money and enjoy a better lifestyle. For anyone considering moving abroad advice and guidance seems to focus on the better life that can be enjoyed overseas.

However, the packages on offer for relocation are not currently as generous as they were a few years ago, and that may well be due to the pressures of the recession.

That would suggest that once the world has got through the latest economic problems there may be even more and better opportunities for those workers with the right skills.

More Opportunities Abroad than Ever

This research has put into focus the increase in the amount of companies looking to move highly skilled people between countries, and it is another way in which opportunities are improving for those who want to move abroad to work.

For those saying, “I want to move abroad,” they don’t have to be a highly-skilled engineer or a major executive to get the opportunity to move abroad. Moving abroad from UK bases is not difficult, and anyone can do it these days. Even if their company does not want to move them abroad, people can still take it upon themselves and use their own initiative to go ahead with their big move, whether that involves working as a freelancer or setting up their own business in their new country.
