British firms ramp up search for new staff but foreign workers missing – survey

Businesses in the United Kingdom boosted their search for new workers as pubs, restaurants and other hospitality and travel firms reopen on Monday.

Adzuna’s survey revealed on Monday that the lack of foreign workers is aggravating a shortage of applicants, with over 10 jobs on offer for every job-seeker in some cities.

Job posting on the U.K.-based job search site increased to 987,800 in the first week of May, up by 18% from the end of March, which was before the reopening of non-essential retailers and hospitality firms for outdoor service in April 12.

As further easing on coronavirus restrictions occurs on Monday in England, Adzuna announced that companies seeking to hire included pub firms Whitbread, Stonegate Pub Company and JD Wetherspoons, restaurant chains Nando’s and Pizza Express, Marriott hotels, and airline Ryanair.

Analysts believe that Brexit and the coronavirus crisis led to the slashed number of foreign workers in Britain.
