Languages Work

The national information resource on careers with languages

Facts and figures

  • Confederation of British Industries (CBI) skills survey (2009)
    This survey revealed that 74% of employers want to employ people with conversational skills in a foreign language – a figure that is likely to grow. If as a nation we fail to meet these demands, employers will increasingly recruit from abroad,  and when it comes to interviews, monolingual British candidates will  find themselves overshadowed by foreign counterparts with two, maybe even three languages.
