Just 3% of employers suggested that they would be releasing workers back into the availability pool, compared with 2% in the same period last year.

SKILLS SHORTAGES AND QUALITY OF HIRES

49% of UK employers were concerned over the sufficient availability of candidates for permanent hire  

The top three skills areas of concern are noted for their high legacy dependency on non-UK nationals within the workforce.

1 – Health & Social Care

2 – Engineering

3 – Construction

SHORT-TERM OUTLOOK

The net balance of forecast demand for agency workers in the short term surged by 12 percentage points this quarter

Meanwhile, the proportion of employers planning to reduce headcount rose from 8% to 12%, year-on-year.

SKILLS SHORTAGES AND QUALITY OF HIRES

35% of employers of temporary agency workers anticipated a shortage of suitable candidates to fill these positions

With the new academic year looming, the anticipated shortfall in the availability of academic agency professionals for the new term is concerning.
