Are tech professionals open to relocating?


New research shows majority of global tech professionals are prepared to up sticks



In an increasingly globalised labour market, with remote and hybrid work very much part of ongoing conversations, it’s interesting to consider whether tech professionals are still open to the possibilities offered by relocation.


In the context of a current trend of startups choosing to migrate as businesses and recent news of Microsoft’s relocation offer made to employees based in China, tech recruitment firm Tenth Revolution Group has conducted new research to gauge attitudes towards relocating amongst more than 2000 individual tech professionals across the globe.

The results show that at 55%, the majority of global tech professionals would be open to relocating, with 37% specifically open to an international move.


Responding to this new data, Tenth Revolution Group President Zoë Morris commented: “55% is a really substantial portion of working tech professionals, and I firmly believe that their openness to relocation will serve them well in today’s market. Relocation widens the possibilities for new opportunities.”


“And in a landscape where more than half of hiring managers working with Salesforce technology have told us that talent scarcity is their main organisational challenge,” Morris continued, “the tech professional who’s prepared to move for the right role is in a strong position – especially if they’re scanning the horizon for other regional markets and potentially considering relocating internationally.”


Methodology


Statistics were derived from the latest (2023-2024) Careers and Hiring Guides offered by Tenth Revolution Group. The total sample size for this study was 2,010. The data corresponds to tech professionals working across Amazon Web Services, Microsoft 365, Azure and Business Applications, NetSuite, and Salesforce.
