Immigration: Skilled workers shortage

As the UK recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions of the last 18 months, the number of job vacancies are reaching record highs.

Many businesses across a number of sectors have been able to reopen in full in the UK since the final restrictions lifted on 19 July 2021. This has created a serious increase in demand for workers, with the ONS estimating that between May and July 2021, there were approximately 958,000 vacancies that needed to be filled.

In this podcast Ciara Duggan explains the skilled workers shortage and how employers can recruit a worker from outside the UK.
