Talent crisis | Debate rumbles on over best solution to worker shortages

Debate rumbles on over best solution to worker shortages

The UK is fast approaching the third anniversary of leaving the EU, followed closely by the anniversary (if you can call it that) of the outbreak of Coronavirus – two historic events which occurred within weeks of one another and left a profound effect on the British economy to this day.

One of the many issues that still persists is the talent crisis, with many sectors massively struggling to fill the number of available roles. And it’s a problem that is only getting worse, according to the most recent statistics - the UK unemployment rate rose slightly to 3.6% in the three months to September, up from 3.5% in August, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
