As the UK is leaving the EU, skill shortages are becoming an increasingly political issue.
Until now, freedom of movement has meant when shortages occurred companies could look to address their needs by adopting a more aggressive recruitment strategy and/or increasing salaries.
Once the UK leaves the EU, there is no guarantee that businesses will have the same access to the European labour pool.
Already concerns are being voiced across industries as diverse as agriculture, tech, healthcare and engineering. Watch Ellie Yates from Hiring Hub present ‘UK Skills Shortages’ and how we can close the skills gap at the Bristol In-house Recruitment Conference, 13th July 2017.
