TRADES ADDED TO LIST OF SHORTAGES
Jeremy Hunt has announced that the government will introduce five categories of occupations to the UK’s shortage occupation list by the summer. The decision comes after the Migration Advisory Committee’s interim review made the recommendations which they suggest will help ease labour supply pressures. Bricklayers and masons; roofers, tilers and slaters; carpenters and joiners; plasterers and construction and building trades n.e.c. will all benefit from relaxed visa rules to help fill shortages with overseas labour.
