So Long, Europe

So, the Brexit happened.

The pound has collapsed and global markets are reeling as every sane adult knew would happen.

But I’m also curious about ESL teachers with UK citizenship.  My understanding was that it was very easy for them to get English gigs within Europe as opposed to, say, ugly Americans like me.

Is that no longer the case?  Certainly there will still be a demand for English teachers, but there’s no longer an incentive to bring in Brits or Australians or New Zealanders over Americans or Canadians?

Genuinely curious about this.

Update:  On Twitter I learned from a friend that much of this might be the case, but also that Ireland remains an EU member.  So super-hypothetically, a possible boon to native English speaking Irish.
