748K positions stay unfilled; expat number drops in UK

About 748,000 positions remain vacant in hospitals, hotels, restaurants, retail stores and other establishments in the United Kingdom as the influx of migrants willing to work in the country has dropped in the wake of the Brexit vote.

Vacancies in retail and wholesale, manufacturing, health and accommodation and food services make up the bulk (45 percent) of all vacancies, reported Gulf News.

Companies in the UK employ a high number of non-UK nationals from the European Union. It also attracts expatriates originating from Asian countries who work in the healthcare industry, the report said.

The UK also happens to be one of the top sources of talent for companies in the UAE, it said, adding that over the years, the UAE has attracted a constant stream of workers from the UK and the rest of the EU.

Hiring specialists, however, assured that the current labour shortage in the UK won’t affect the UAE market, said the news portal.

“The UAE is in a valuable position as firms look to hire existing professionals within the region. The expat movements between the UK and the UAE remains at a relatively similar level to previous years,” Gareth El Mettouri, associate director at Robert Half UAE, reportedly said.

“With tax and treasury specialists in high demand with the intended VAT introduction on the horizon, many professionals with these specialist skills within the region are open to new opportunities that suit their desired salary range, working environment and work—life balance.”

The latest Labor Market Outlook from the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development and the Adecco Group also reportedly hinted that the UK skills shortage could worsen, citing that there is evidence that non-UK nationals from the European Union are considering leaving their companies or the UK this year.

“There’s a risk that many vacancies will be left unfulfilled which could act as a brake on output growth in the UK in the years ahead,” Gerwyn Davies, labor market adviser for the CIPD, the professional body for HR and people development, reportedly said.

“Employers in sectors like retail, hospitality and care will need to work much harder to attract candidates and combat labour shortages by improving the attractiveness of their jobs through better line management and job design, developing closer links with local educational institutions and improving pay and employment conditions where possible.”

Data suggest that the growth in the number fo non-UK EU nationals working in the country has declined in recent months, from an average of more than 60,000 per quarter in the nine months to June 2016 to just 30,000 in the three months to September 2016, reported Gulf News.

The Labor Market Outlook is based on a survey of more than 1,000 employers. Among those polled, 27 percent have seen evidence to suggest that non-UK nationals from the EU are contemplating on leaving their company and/or the UK in 2017, the report said.
