United Kingdom -Lack of skilled labour but regional development stagnates -January 22, 2014

A TUC report shows how people’s chances of having a job have fallen in four English regions – the West Midlands, the North West, the North East and the South West. The North East and London have performed best over the last twenty years, with employment rates increasing by over five percentage points since the 1990s, in spite of the recession. However, even between the London boroughs there are big local differences. On the other hand, a report from the temporary agency sector suggests that a growing proportion of businesses have no capacity to take on more work without creating new jobs. Technical and engineering, computing and IT, and education and training are the areas in which employers expect to have the most difficultly sourcing appropriately skilled candidates for permanent roles.
