Totaljobs & Jobsite: The UK slips as a hot spot for global talent


On the morning of 12 December 2018, totaljobs and Jobsite are hosting a free breakfast event at Techspace Shoreditch, London. Joined by Boston Consulting Group, attendees will be given a deep dive into the future of recruitment on the global stage.

This insight is taken from the Global Talent Survey, the largest ever study of jobseekers, with nearly 400,000 respondents from 197 countries worldwide. This research was featured across national media, including The Telegraph, The Guardian and the front page of City AM, with commentary from Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.

The research shines a light on what motivates candidates, and highlights skills shortages like never before. From the UK’s ability to attract overseas workers, to the threat of talent leaving our shores, totaljobs and Jobsite will take a look at global mobility trends which could shape the UK in the years following Brexit.

Key findings include:

  • Half of employers believe Brexit will worsen the UK skills shortage.
  • The UK is now the fifth most popular country for global workers, falling three places down the global rankings since 2014.
  • Nearly two-thirds of Brits are now open to moving overseas for work.

Mike Booker, International Sales Director of totaljobs and Jobsite is joined by Nick South, Managing Director, Boston Consulting Group. Together, they will share their expertise in global recruitment, present and discuss the research, decipher its key findings and assess what employers can do to combat upcoming challenges.

In doing so, they’ll ask, is the UK ready to compete on the global stage?
