UK Skills Gap is Crippling the Economy: Here Are The Best Ways for Employers To Recruit Foreign Workers

Since Brexit, the UK has been facing huge labour shortages, which is holding back productivity and economic growth. These crippling labour shortages are damaging for the economy- it could cost the economy £30 billion a year. There are now over 1.3 million job vacancies that need to be filled, covering a whole host of industries and sectors.

So, how can UK employers manage these major recruitment difficulties and reduce the number of unfilled job vacancies?

UK employers need a sponsor license in order to bring workers from overseas. Additionally, the UK has implemented a new points-based immigration system for skilled workers. But many employers don’t know what a sponsor license is, or how to go about getting one. This means that many UK employers are facing huge recruitment difficulties and they are also missing out on opportunities to grow their businesses to full potential.

Therefore, applying to sponsor foreign workers can be a lengthy, confusing process for employers who may not understand how the application process works and what supporting documentation they need to provide.

If you are a UK employer, Synergy Immigration Solutions can support you through the whole process of applying to sponsor foreign workers, to help you recruit your ideal candidates, including  Sponsorship License Services and Skilled Worker and Global Business Mobility Routes.
