Anywhere Jobs: Will remote working reshape the geography of jobs?
The pandemic has spurred a large-scale experiment in the ability to work remotely and, in doing so, has begun to loosen the binds that previously tied a job to a geography. Now, there is a new class of relatively well-paid, professional white-collar jobs that can be done remotely anywhere in the UK or, indeed, in the world. Our new paper analyses these “Anywhere Jobs”, looking at what, if anything, the Government can do to keep them in the UK. This event will present the report’s findings, with a panel of experts discussing the political, social and economic consequences of how technology is making the labour market more flexible, mobile and global.
