Young people 'attracted to work abroad opportunities'
Companies that offer the opportunity to work abroad are more attractive to young people, a new study has found.

Findings from a survey by fast food giant McDonalds show that 56 per cent of young people are attracted to jobs that could offer the chance to work in another country.

Chief human resources officer at McDonald's Europe Cecile Staner comments that young adults are "keen to broaden there horizons through travel".

The poll discovered that the reasons staff may want to work abroad is discover a new culture and meet new people, learn a different language and challenge themselves with new experiences.

Conducted by Populus, the survey questioned people throughout Europe aged 16 to 25 and discovered Polish and Italian citizens are the most inclined to work abroad.

The Recruitment and Employment Confederation recently declared its support for migrant workers, stating that they deserve a fair deal in employment in the UK and should ensure they receive the same rights as other workers.
