London is the place for me, say City workers

London's banking staff seem happier with their lot and more content to stay put, according to our latest poll.

Of 388 respondents currently working in London, 85% would now prefer not to relocate, compared to just 47.5% in 2006.

This might be because other capital cities in the British Isles seem to be growing less attractive to City workers. Just 11.3% say they would move north to Edinburgh and only 4.8% fancy Dublin as a place to work and live. These figures compare with 21.6% and 9% respectively a year ago.

But the City shouldn't get complacent - 73% of London-based financiers say they'd be prepared to head elsewhere in return for a pay rise, and around a third said they'd shift for a rise of less than 25%.
