Tech employers increasingly looking to EU nationals to plug the industry skills gap.

  • by

Following a notable decline in the aftermath of the BREXIT vote, the proportion tech industry workers with EU nationality was seen to increase throughout the second half of 2017 with a particularly sharp rise occurring over the Q3-Q4.17 period. As a result, by the final quarter of 2017, approximately 8% (83,000) of the industry workforce (1,093,000 people in total) were thought to be of EU nationality.
