Supporting Smooth and Effective Recruitment
Unemployment rates are currently at the lowest rate in the UK since the 1970’s, which is further increasing the skills shortage in many highly skilled jobs. The imminent departure from the EU is only set to contribute further to the shortage, with 53% of UK businesses expecting recruitment issues to worsen after Brexit.
Businesses are worried about the visa restrictions which might be placed on their highly skilled workers, making it more difficult to fill roles or replace workers who are either forced or choose to leave the UK. Net migration to the UK from EU countries is already taking a hit, currently sitting the lowest level in six years, according to the Office for National Statistics.
It is imperative that countries from across the globe start to take stock of their skills shortages and find ways to address these. This job board has been set up to help employers deal with international skills shortages for executive roles in specialised areas such as medical/healthcare, technology, engineering, nuclear energy, oil and gas, IT and design.
These skills shortages are not just prevalent in the UK and Europe (although they are likely to become worse here due to Brexit.) The shortages also affect overseas countries. STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) play a vital part in the growth of the economy and these are areas we are increasingly facing severe skills shortages.
This job board is one of its kind. It has been developed to help keep recruitment simple and make it easier to hire candidates from anywhere in the world.
We specialise in occupations where there is a worldwide skills shortage, including IT, medicine and biomedical science, researchers, teachers, engineers and consultancy. It is particularly relevant for the UK at the moment, where Brexit is likely to make skills shortages more prominent. We specialise in the highly skilled and executive job market and we aim to reduce skills shortages for employers throughout the world. We have taken the time to understand the recruitment needs of organisations both locally (UK and Europe) and internationally. Highly Skilled and Executive Job Market
The skills shortages experienced internationally are most prominent in the highly skilled and executive job market. In the UK, occupations on the skills shortage list include, engineering professionals, IT specialists and programmers, medical practitioners, nurses and health professionals and paramedics. Similar skills shortages apply internationally, including the US who need to hire around 2.3 million healthcare workers by 2025 to be able to cope with demands, according to reports.
The New Zealand skills shortage list also includes engineering, health and social services and IT. The same stands in Australia and many other countries across the globe. Highly skilled professionals are those who have specialised skills and experience, making them an important asset to a business. This is not to say that unskilled workers are not valued, but they can be trained much easier than highly skilled or executive professionals.
For example, a doctor will study for several years before they are qualified to do the job. The knowledge and skills can’t be taught on the job, unlike lower skilled jobs, such as customer service representatives or cleaners. This is where the difficulty lies. There are not enough candidates out there with the required qualifications and experience to fill highly skilled and executive roles, which makes them like gold dust to employers.
Candidates looking to go into highly skilled fields will need to study relevant degrees. Some of the most common degrees which allow graduates to obtain employment in highly skilled roles include, adult nursing, dentistry, teacher training, architecture, marketing, journalism, design studies, mathematics, law and business studies, civil engineering and information technology. There is a difference between qualified and skilled candidates.
Qualified candidates may have the relevant degree to undertake an executive role, but they may not have experience. In the same way, skilled candidates may not be qualified, but they might have relevant experience.
The relevance depends on the job. For example, you wouldn’t hire a doctor without qualifications, but most companies would consider a doctor straight from university, who might not necessarily have the skills yet. On the other hand, an IT specialist may be hired based on their skillset, even if they are not qualified. Whether an organisation chooses to hire qualified, skilled or both really depends on the nature of the business. If it’s possible to hire a mix of both, without compromising the quality of the service, it would make sense to do so.
Current Job Opportunities
Within the areas of skills shortages, the opportunities are widespread. In engineering, we are typically finding vacancies throughout process and design, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, quality and assurance and chemical engineering. Job opportunities in ICT include, software developers, web design and database administrators. There are severe shortages in the healthcare sector, including doctors, nurses, dieticians, intensive care practitioners. Obviously, these occupations are vital for our economy and welfare, so severe skills shortages could lead to a worldwide crisis. We believe that through working together with businesses and candidates, we can find a solution and help to build a more stable and brighter future for our economy.
With unemployment rates lower than they have been for decades, many employers are struggling to get the right calibre of candidates to fill key roles within their business. This is particularly problematic due to the imminent departure of the UK from the EU, which may have consequences for both the UK and Europe in terms of recruiting and retaining staff. Skills shortages are prevalent in the UK, Europe and internationally in specific areas, including healthcare, engineering, IT and technology. We aim to help reduce these issues by providing you with the very best quality of highly skilled and executive level candidates.
