Hessam Lavi, a Berlin-based owner of, pronounced a fast boost in trade was a transparent pointer that Britons now feared for their jobs and their futures. 

His comments will supplement to concerns that a UK might now knowledge an exodus of workers to countries that are still in a EU. 

Mr Lavi, an Iranian-born Swede who lives in Berlin, told news network The Local that his website scarcely crashed on a morning after a referendum vote.

He said: “Friday morning we woke and fundamentally all of a servers were on fire.

“For us it’s apparent that people are disturbed about their work, about their jobs, about their future. This is a side outcome of ‘what do we do next’.”

Mr Lavi pronounced between May and Jun there was a fourfold boost in a series of UK visitors to, and “In a past 10 days, a boost is in a hundreds of thousands of some-more UK visitors.”

Mr Lavi, who has formerly described himself as “a child of a EU” carrying left an rough regime to live in European countries that reputable tellurian rights, added: “Without freedom of movement, London is going to suffer.

“The horizon of a EU and a fortitude that London will miss means it can simply attract talent from opposite a EU given a leisure of movement.”

He pronounced many UK users of his website seemed to be looking for jobs in Berlin’s tech industry, that might impact London’s standing as Europe’s startup capital.

“London has been a de facto startup heart for a prolonged time,” pronounced Mr Lavi, “But Berlin is throwing adult and with this change, it’s accelerating… clearly people are looking for alternatives.”

Other jobs websites have also remarkable a swell in seductiveness from a UK, with Indeed saying a share of UK users looking for opportunities in other European countries double in a 48 hours that followed a Brexit vote.

Mariano Mamertino, Indeed’s mercantile investigate analyst, pronounced this mirrored what happened in Greece after it hold a referendum rejecting a EU’s bailout terms in 2015.  

Mr Mamertino said: “We see a distinguished similarity in post-Brexit pursuit hunt patterns with those following a Greek referendum in 2015. The share of pursuit seekers looking for opportunities outward of a UK in European countries doubled in a 48 hours that followed a proclamation of a Brexit, only as it did for Greece. 

“These could be early signs of British jobseekers’ common opinion of no confidence.”
