Spurred by the ubcertainty following the Brexit result, a huge number of disillusioned Britons are seeking to become expats working overseas.

Ever since the result of the Brexit referendum was announced, online international recruitment sites have been deluged by huge numbers of British workers seeking a new life abroad. A recent analysis of the millions of search results is showing the Irish Republic as a favourite destination for those starting a new life and wishing to remain EU citizens by any possible means.

Enquiries for jobs in the Irish Republic have soared by 20 per cent compared with results from before the referendum, with Australia, Canada and several other EU member states also proving popular.According to a major jobseeker portal, Ireland has always been a favourite, not only with Brits but also with jobseekers form the rest of the EU.

Ireland’s shared heritage and, importantly, language, as well as its location off the English coastline are all important factors in the republic’s popularity with Britons. It’s expected to become a magnet for international talent once the Brexit negotiations get underway and begin to affect the British economy and jobs market.

It seems the referendum result has prompted many who were disenchanted with the direction in which the UK was heading to start the expatriate process by searching for suitable jobs overseas.Professionals from other EU member states are also expected to opt for emigration rather than waiting to see what will happen to the union over the next several years.
