FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT


Introduction

TidyChoice, an online platform for housekeeping and childcare services, surveyed over 3,000 London-based independent professionals on its database to understand foreign workers’ attitudes towards Brexit and intentions post-Brexit. The survey indicates the likelihood that these freelance workers will stay in the UK post-Brexit.



Summary conclusions

· A UK economic downturn in the wake of a no-deal Brexit could see 47% of all foreign workers and 54% of Eastern European workers leaving the country.

· Foreigners that have lived in the UK for more than five years are more likely to stay (58%) whilst those that have lived in the UK for less than two years are more likely to go (67%)

· 55% of Eastern Europeans report feeling unwelcome or less welcome since the Brexit vote compared to 47% for other nationalities

· The UK government needs to do more to reassure foreign workers living in London. Only 20% believe that they have done enough



Respondent segmentation

65% of respondents have lived in the UK for more than five years whilst 15% have lived in the UK for less than two years. Eastern Europe accounts for 49% of respondents with Bulgaria and Romania being the largest countries representing 16% and 15% of the overall total respectively.



If there is a no-deal Brexit will you leave the UK because of it?



Overall, just over half of respondents say that they would stay in the UK irrespective of a no-deal Brexit. There is a marked difference in intentions between Western and Eastern Europeans with Eastern Europeans more likely to leave if earnings fall. Two thirds of respondents who have been living in the UK for less than two years have signaled that they would leave if a no-deal Brexit negatively impacted their earnings.




Since the Brexit vote do you feel less welcome in the UK?



Around half of respondents feel less welcome since the Brexit vote. Eastern Europeans feel less welcome than other nationalities. Respondents who have lived in the UK for more than five years did not feel any less welcome with 61% reporting no change.



Has the UK Government done enough to reduce uncertainty about my rights to stay in the UK?


Only 20% of respondents believe that the UK Government has done enough to safeguard their rights to stay in the UK. Only 15% of respondents who have lived in the UK for less than five years believe that the UK Government has done enough.
