UK Visa Holders Fill Some Gap Of Required Skilled Workforce

01 Sep 2010


A recent survey conducted on nearly 600 firms in the UK revealed that UK visa holders are filling the huge gap between the existing demand and required workforce in the UK. Inspite of this, UK is experiencing a high unemployment rate in the nation.  Also, UK firms are looking to recruit migrants and also resort to overseas outsourcing.

Nearly 45 percent of the firms showed interest to recruit immigrant workers to fill the shortage as they are unable to get the candidates with required skills and qualifications within the country for the existing vacancies. Nearly 21 percent of the employers were hiring immigrants with engineering skills and willing to work in the UK. Some firms are in the process of hiring immigrants in IT, finance and accountancy.

Policy advisor of the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development), Gerwyn Davies stated that UK employers are struggling with shortage of workforce and the UK government is maintaining a tough stand on introducing annual cap on UK immigration levels. And this skills shortage can affect the competitiveness of the UK in the international market in a big way. Davies cautions that there is a possibility of outsourcing jobs abroad.
