UK Technicians shortfall

It is an industry known fact that suitably qualified Technicians are in short supply. In March 2022, IMI analysis of job postings for all automotive occupations shows a 51% increase in postings year-on-year.

This includes a 46% increase in the number of posts advertised for HGV technicians from January to March 2022. The automotive, retail, and aftermarket sectors are facing the worst skills deficit for more than 20 years.https://www.fleetnews.co.uk/news/car-industry-news/2022/04/08/imi-automotive-skills-shortage-concern-as-job-postings-show-50-rise

UK Skilled Worker Visa
