I am from London and looking into relocating to Lima next year and have a question in relation to the working languages in some of the international companies.
I work in banking (risk management) and notice that there are a lot of large international banks and consultancies based in Lima (Scotiabank, HSBC, Citibank, Standard Chartered, PwC, Deloitte etc). Please could someone give me some form of indication as to whether their working languages (in their office environments) is Spanish or English?
I studied Spanish up until the age of 16 (I am now 28) and gained top grades at it throughout my school life so would most likely be able to become fluent within a year or two if I immersed myself in the language. In London I have taken a number of professional qualifications and have never struggled to find work (I graduated from a top UK university with a first class Maths degree). Please could someone advise me around whether I would be in demand among employers in Lima? or would my lack of fluency in Spanish rule me out of landing top jobs in Lima for now at least?
Thanks for any help anyone can provide
