Obviously not. The GBP is down due to the uncertainty of the whole Brexit thing... if anything are MNCs going to leave the UK, not the other way around. If you have a six months project might it be an opportunity, but with a longer horizon is it mostly a business risk. You can outsource to other EU countries for less money without that...
You can hedge you currency forward if you want, the will get cheaper over the next 3 years so little point IMHO.
It's interesting how people get blinkered when they have a financial interest. Expect salaries to fall in CH, they have in many ex-pat sectors over the last 15 years & more redundancies.
