Where will we be working once lockdown ends?

As we mark the first anniversary of the UK’s lockdowns, thoughts turn to us regaining a sense of normality. The Government’s roadmap will shape the speed at which professionals return to their offices, with the ‘work from home where you can’ ruling staying in place until the 17th May 2021.

From this date, official guidelines state ‘most businesses in all but the highest risk sectors will be able to reopen’ and indoor hospitality will return in an outdoor capacity, giving workers a familiar rhythm again in the shape of business lunches and after-work drinks.

Amsterdam canal

Amsterdam is an attractive option for businesses and expat workers

As the capital of the Netherlands and the leader of a more liberal lifestyle, Amsterdam needs little introduction. The city is divided into seven districts: Centrum, Oost, West, Nieu-West, Nord, Zuid and Zuid-Oost – all well connected by cycle paths, public transport and even water taxi. 

Although not classed as a coastal city, Amsterdam is linked to open water by the long North Sea Canal and the centre itself is reported to have more than 165 ‘grachten’ (canals) that total in excess of 100 kilometres, with around 90 islands and 1,500 bridges.

Eiffel Tower, Paris, France

Endless romance, haute couture, café culture and exquisite patisseries are all synonymous with Paris but clichés aside, the capital of France remains a prestigious location in which to work and live.

Paris is a northern central city on the banks of the River Seine, with fantastic connections to the rest of Europe – and the world – by air, rail, road and sea. It is the most populated city in France, with over 2 million inhabitants in the centre alone and almost 11 million in the wider Région Parisienne. The city is divided into 20 districts, known as arrondissements, with the underground ‘Metro’ and RER express commuter trains serving the inner-city neighbourhoods and banlieus - the Parisian suburbs.
