Gen Y are heading abroad to escape Australia's slowdown

GENERATION Y is saying "catchya 'straya" as they head overseas to escape our country's slowing economy and rise in unemployment, a new report shows.

Recruitment firm Robert Walters has found almost nine in 10 Millennials working in Australia and New Zealand want to head overseas to work.

Despite this, of over 400 employers surveyed, three in four said they did not offer these opportunities.

Robert Walters ANZ managing director James Nicholson said speculation of economic downturn and rising unemployment was motivating Gen Y to go international with their job prospects.

"Millennials, or Gen Y, have grown up in a borderless world with greater access to international travel, so their sights are set high to begin with," Mr Nicholson said.
