Hiring in the United Kingdom

You’ll know the UK for its royal family, its pretty green countryside and its multiple cultural icons – from the Beatles and the Spice Girls to fish and chips and James Bond. An island nation made up of four countries, the UK is a G7 member and has the fifth largest economy in the world.

The UK’s economy is dominated by the services sector, making up 90% of GDP. The capital city, London, is a major financial centre and second only to New York globally. The United Kingdom’s main exports include cars, planes and pharmaceuticals.

Employment in the United Kingdom is typified by a highly-developed labour market, and workers in the UK enjoy some of the most developed employment laws in the world. The workforce is highly educated and highly skilled and international companies are part and parcel of daily business. The UK ranks as ‘easy’ when it comes to doing business.
