Skilled Workers Move To Australia

Britons who want to boost their job prospects are increasingly moving to Australia, according to an expert.

Paul Arthur, director of The Emigration Group, stated that the country is proving to be very popular with skilled professionals such as doctors and architects.

Speaking to the Western Mail, he said Australia's "booming" economy has made it an appealing destination for those who wish to progress in their career.

However, he added that it is not just those with academic qualifications who are choosing to move to a property in Australia in search of work.

Mr Arthur commented: "People see they need all sorts of skills to help build these countries for the future."

The country was described as one of the most popular locations in the world for British expatriates.

This backs up recent figures from the Office for National Statistics, which revealed that a quarter of UK nationals who moved abroad in 2006 relocated to Australia.
