Recruiter welcomes decision to re-evaluate migration cap

Recruiter welcomes decision to re-evaluate migration cap
A migration cap could prove costly to the UK economy by preventing businesses from finding the key workers that they require, specialist IT recruitment firm IntaPeople has said.
The Home Office has confirmed that there will be an interim limit of 24,100 work visas awarded to non-European Union migrants between now and April. However, after pressure from several business groups and cabinet members, Theresa May has agreed to hold a 12-week consultation to discuss the issue before any permanent measures are announced.
Phil Handley, Operations Director at IntaPeople, has greeted the decision to review the migration plans. He commented:
There is a concern that a cap like this could prevent exceptionally skilled migrants from outside the EU entering the country. With current unemployment figures so high, it may seem sensible looking for candidates closer to home, but it is not as straightforward as this.
We have handled a number of key IT positions that would not have been filled had it not been for the experience and knowledge of some of these workers. We therefore welcome the decision to hold a consultation on the matter, and hope that the Government can devise a more localised approach, so that areas suffering from skills shortages can still recruit the talent they need.
