Middle East – 53% of finance professionals are actively looking for a new job, the highest pourcentage

With extensive job cuts over the last six years and ongoing prudence around pay, financial service employees have every right to feel a little gloomy in the workplace, and yet the majority of people working in the industry are still happy in their roles and the majority are not looking to leave their current job.

Only 34% of finance professionals in London responding to the FinancialCareers Career Satisfaction & Retention Survey and 36% in Hong Kong said they were actively looking for a new job. This rises to a high of 53% in the Middle East, 43% in New York and 41% in Singapore. While these proportions are relatively high, it’s only in the Middle East where the majority of employees are actively looking to switch positions.
