UK MAC Recommends New Rules to Hire Foreign Skilled Nationals

Foreign Skilled Nationals
Here's some good news for individuals who would like to work in the UK. According to the TechRepublic reports, it might soon be simpler for some UK firms to recruit non-EU IT professionals. 

The United Kingdom MAC (Migration Advisory Committee) has proposed that the government alleviate rules to enable startups as well as scale-ups to pad the positions with the skilled candidates from outside the European Economic Area.

The positions for which labor scarcity has been recognized by MAC are senior programmers, data scientists, product managers and cyber security specialists. At present, all the firms seeking to recruit non-EU nationals for any of these positions should post the job offer for a period of 28 days and prove that no appropriate candidate has applied. 

The labor scarcity identified is not regarding any employee in specified positions, but instead for workers with enough experience in order to train others, and thus MAC recommendations are applicable to professionals holding five or more years of work experience.

Scale-ups are identifies as firms with 10 or over employees that experience 20% growth or turnover over a period of three years. 

Migration Advisory Committee suggests that regulations for huge international firms remains similar, driving them to utilize intra-company transfers to pad the same positions with non-EU nationals.

Cyber security is a sector where a scarcity of skilled employees has been identified across the world even in other leading destinations, so recruiting overseas employees to address skill and experience deficit might still be demanding for the United Kingdom startups.
