Competition for people and skills is now more acute than ever as businesses face a perfect storm of labour shortages. Vacancy growth is at its highest rate in over a decade, affecting the UK’s recovery and growth potential and challenging the logistics, food production, hospitality and retail sectors in particular.
This is on top of chronic skills shortages across the UK labour market, especially in digital and STEM. The COVID-19 crisis has also increased the number of EU workers leaving the UK, as well as decimating firms’ ability to adjust to the end of the Brexit transition.
