More than half of Greek employees would be interested in working abroad or willing to move for the “right” job, a recent study by HR services firm Randstad Hellas has found, adding that job security is also a mounting concern.

According to the Workmonitor survey published on April 4, 58 percent of Greek employees expressed an interest in working abroad, jumping to 74 percent in the 18-24 age bracket, and 57 percent said they would be willing to move abroad for the “right” job. Women appeared more eager at 61 percent than men (55 pct), and the 18-24 age group particularly so at 67 percent, followed by the 25-34 age group at 61 percent.

On the question of job security, 42 percent of respondents said it is “highly likely” that they may lose their job or that their contract will not be extended within the next six months, showing a 3 percent rise from the fourth quarter of 2015.

Women appeared more concerned about losing their jobs at 46 percent than men (39 pct) and the 55-67 age bracket had the greatest sense of job insecurity at 50 percent, followed by the 18-24 age group at 49 percent.
