Reasons people choose to move away from the UK

If you are currently thinking about the possibility of relocating and moving to another country, then you are not alone. Currently, more people than ever before have the thought in their mind that they might like to move to another country at some point in the near future – and many are even putting it into action and taking a look at what is available overseas. If you are thinking about moving yourself, then this blog might help you to consider some of the reasons that people decide to look into leaving the UK and living abroad.

Job opportunities
With more people going to university than ever before, the UK is currently in the situation of having too many trained professionals for many job openings, meaning that lots of graduates are struggling to get work. This, however, isn’t the case in many other countries, as the professions that are saturated in the UK are crying out for trained staff abroad. For this reason, they may decide that a move would be good for them. Not only this, but other countries may also offer more attractive pay scales, which could therefore improve standards of living in the future.

Lifestyle for the family
Often, if you are living in a UK city, you may dream of being able to take your children somewhere to live where they would be able to enjoy fantastic activities in the outdoors all of the time – and living abroad could be a great answer to this. Other countries can offer a huge number of activities that the UK can’t, and this can be attractive to parents who are hoping to give their children the best opportunities.

It’s no secret that there are lots of struggling schools in the UK, and with this being the case lots of people have lost faith in the education system. Other countries have different approaches to this, with things being more practical based rather than always thinking about exams, and this is something that lots of parents would like for their children – and it can certainly be a contributing factor when they choose to move abroad.

If you’ve lived in the UK for all of your life, then you will be aware of the fact that the weather isn’t always that great – particularly during the winter months. With this in mind, a change in climate is something that can attract lots of people to other countries, to the extent that they might be thinking about setting up a whole new life there. Climates with lots of sunshine can make a huge difference to people’s state of mind, and this is what a lot of people choosing to move abroad will be looking for.

Generally, there are lots of things to consider when you are thinking about making such a dramatic change and moving to another country. There may be lots of reasons why you wish to leave the UK and move abroad – but only you will be able to make the decision about whether you think making such a huge change would be worth it. It is a big decision, and one that could have a huge impact on both you and your family now and in the future.

We have been so impressed with the care taken and the quality of packing, and also realise perhaps how lucky we have been to instigate the move when we did, and then to ask John Mason to do it for us.

D.P. Leeds, UK to Perth, Australia – November 2020

Absolutely one of the best movers I have worked with. Pleasant helpful admin staff and the delivery drivers were absolute angels sorting and moving the boxes where I asked them to. Arrived exactly when they said it would.
