Companies in the UK are experiencing the worst employee shortages since the 1990s, during the reopening from lockdowns and the significant decline in overseas workers from the pandemic and Brexit. The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) has sounded an alarm about the risks to economic recovery from these major labor shortages. The number of workers dropped in June at the speediest rate since 1997.
All sectors are seeing hiring challenges, especially in transport, hospitality, construction, and manufacturing. If you are looking for a better job opportunity, contact Jobs Across the World. Their team of job specialists will match your qualifications with the best open position for you.
As well as needing to fill positions in construction and manufacturing, higher paying jobs such as in finance, accounting, IT, and engineering are also short of workers. Claire Warnes, an employee at KPMG UK, said action is needed from government and businesses to upskill and reskill not only prospective but furloughed workers. The increasing skills gap across the board has the potential to continue slowing the economic recovery in the United Kingdom.
Companies are seeing additional complications as fewer EU workers travel to the UK because of the pandemic border controls along with the government’s post-Brexit immigration laws.
