Tom Hadley, the REC’s Director of External Relations has said that “Recruiters have voiced a number of concerns with regards to the Government\’s proposed plans on immigration. This will always be a highly sensitive and politicised issue but we must ensure that immigration policy reflects the needs of the UK jobs market. REC members are already reporting an impact in high-end sectors, such as Technology and Financial Services and we have consistently highlighting the potential implications in other sector such as social care. We all agree with the need to upskill UK workers so that they can access opportunities – this was a core theme of the REC\’s Youth Employment Taskforce. However, there is a short-term need for UK businesses to be able to access the right level of talent in order to compete. Our ongoing dialogue with the Immigration Minister and with the Home Office will ensure that the views and concerns of recruiters are taken forward and we will continue to collate the practical feedback of members over the coming months.”
