16th May - 5th June
One of the fundamental issues facing the developed world is their skill shortage as a result of regional mismatch, cyclical shifts, inadequate training levels and labour market restructuring. The UK has a range of professions that fall under Occupation Skill Shortages category as companies fail to find suitable candidates from within the local talent pool to perform certain jobs. This opens up a wide array of opportunities for the international student and labour market. Some sectors facing skill shortages include Engineering (Especially Oil & Gas Industry), Electronics Engineers in Aerospace & Railways, Civil Nuclear Industries, Waste Management, Medical Consultants as well as IT Specialists, Graphic Designers, Animators, Social Workers.
