London named best city in the world for work

London named best city in the world for work

A study from management consultant firm the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) has named London as the best city in the world to work in.

The research was the largest-ever study of workforce migration trends, with 366,000 workers from nearly 200 countries being surveyed.


London continues to be top in terms of finance, business and culture, with the study stating that the city has not been affected by Brexit. The capital outperformed Berlin, Barcelona and New York, earning the top spot for the second time, with the city first being named the top destination for global workers four years ago.

It is the second time in recent months that London has been recognised for its position as a leading financial hub, with the city also keeping its top spot in the Global Financial Centres Index. The city scored first place for having the most attractive and competitive business environment, beating the likes of Hong Kong, Singapore and New York.


Commenting on London earning the top spot, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan stated: “London is without a doubt one of the best places in the world to live and work and it is fantastic news that our message that London remains open for business is being heard loud and clear.”

Totaljobs’ International Director Mike Booker also praised London for its top position in the study, stating that while the UK may have lost some of its lustre, the capital still continues to be the number one destination for talent worldwide.
