Prospective expats are increasingly considering the opportunities they could have if they move abroad, the director of Shelter Offshore has claimed.
Rhiannon Davies pointed out that people of any age could take up the expatriate medical insurance policyholder lifestyle in a different country and would not have to wait until retirement to do so.
"We Brits are globally mobile and there is a tradition as long as your arm of Brits pioneering, exploring, colonising and setting up home, business and lifestyle abroad. So it is no surprise to me that would-be expat Brits are getting younger in my opinion," she commented.
Individuals considering moving abroad should keep in mind that it is easier to find work before relocating rather than waiting until they arrive in a foreign country, Ms Davies said, as this takes the pressure off somewhat.
Ensuring that one's skills translate abroad is also useful as this reduces the likelihood of an expatriate having to re-qualify, she added.
Her comments come after research from Glotel indicated that more than half of Britain's working population is currently thinking of moving abroad to live.
