UK Vacancies vs. UK Skills Gap

UK vacancies continue to soar, with employers struggling to retain and find capable and suitable employees more than ever.  The biggest reason given is the “skills gap” with many people not possessing or holding the right skills to fulfil the immediate demand asked from businesses.  But with the economy growth rate nearing negative 10%, people should be outweighing vacancies at an increasing rate – so what’s the problem?

Is Flexible Working the Driver?

As the Covid-19 pandemic has brought many changes, a significant one is the greater need and demand for flexible working. This goes across all industries, and increasingly expected by more people. So people search for greater flexibility, autonomy and long-term careers, the strain on industries recruiting in certain areas, hospitality for example, becomes more difficult. Whereas those that can offer greater benefits through flexible working (and more) are seeing more applicants than roles – and this is where the issue arises.  As people seek alternative employment, shifting from industries which cannot offer as flexible working conditions to industries that do, the skills gap becomes bigger and more apparent.
