London is the most desirable city in the world to work in, according to a new survey.

In a survey of 200,000 people in 189 countries, Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and the recruiter totaljobs.com, found that more people want to live and work in London than any other. New York and Paris finished second and third, respectively.

Mike Booker of totaljobs.com said: “This report cements London’s reputation as a truly global city.

"Not only does it offer a wealth of job opportunities in a range of industries, but it boasts some of the world’s top cultural attractions, so it’s no surprise that people across the globe want to come and work here.”

Although London topped the cities list, the United Kingdom as a whole came second behind the United States. Forty-two percent of those surveyed said they wanted to move to work in the US, compared to 37% who said the UK.

The study also found that around two thirds of workers would emigrate to work in another country, but less than half of Brits are willing to do the same.
