Challenges Facing the UK IT Jobs Market

Are you surprised by the current UK technology jobs market? Advertising plus wider recruitment activities returning very few applicants?

Challenging jobs market (Spring 2021).

For those tech companies on a mission to find top software engineers, developers, data scientists or Board level executives right now, a lot of factors are in play that are making this extremely tough (to put it mildly). 

Placing the Tech in MedTech and BioTech

A strong growth in market interest in medical technology (MedTech) and biotechnology (Biotech) companies, driven by an ageing population, a global pandemic and increased healthcare spending, has seen the UK leading the way in the development of: medical devices; diagnostics and monitoring software; digital health tech; pharmaceutical manufacturing technologies and genomics.

The UK Digital Skills Gap

Demand is growing for candidates with advanced digital skills, with 60% of employers expecting demand to continue rising in the next 5 years. 

Research by the Learning and Work Institute (LWI) found that over one in three employers say they face a skills gap within their current workforce for advanced digital skills, while 41% have struggled to recruit workers with the advanced digital skills that they need.

The LWI is an independent policy research organisation that conducted research exploring digital skills and the future of the labour market in the UK.

Countering Bias In Recruitment

As the push to diversify the IT sector picks up speed, so too has awareness of unconscious bias. Can technology-enabled ‘blind’ recruitment do a better job of identifying talent?  In these more enlightened times, companies have strategies to beat a kneejerk reaction to an unfamiliar name, the “wrong” gender, or the suspect “gut feeling”.

EU Settlement Scheme

Freedom of Movement ended on 31 December 2020. EU, EEA (Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein) and Swiss citizens living in the UK before this date need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to retain the right to live and work here. 

The deadline for applying is 30th June 2021. Only those who have been granted indefinite leave to remain or have Irish Citizenship are exempt.

Applicants will either be given Pre-Settled or Settled status depending on how long they’ve been living in the UK.
