Most foreign nationals have one advantage over their British colleagues or competitors: They are fluent in at least one more language than many British citizens. This is an important factor if you consider working in the UK, but aren’t sent on a traditional expat assignment. There is always a high demand for speakers of foreign languages, from engineers to teachers, from local government officials to sales personnel. In particular highly-skilled people fluent in languages spoken by traditional immigrant communities in the UK are much sought after.
The number of people aged 16 and over who are currently employed in the UK reached 29.73 million at the end of 2012. London, despite its unemployment above the national average, is the place where most people working in the UK end up. Europe’s financial capital attracts a lot of international business, and most multinational companies have a London branch. So, during your time in Britain there is a good chance that you’ll be working in the UK capital.
