Shortage occupation list: call for evidence

The UK Government want to hear organisations' views on the roles that are being filled by migrant workers, the salaries they are paid and implications of potential changes.

In March 2020, the UK Government commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to compile a UK shortage occupation list (SOL), which will primarily focus on occupations at RQF Level 3-5 (medium skill). This is to be reported in September 2020.

The COVID-19 outbreak has placed businesses in an enormously difficult situation and organisations that would normally respond to the call for evidence may not currently have capacity to do so.

Therefore, alongside the main call for evidence, there are options to provide limited evidence or to register that you would have responded in different circumstances.

The consultation closes at 11:45pm on 24 June 2020.
